If I Could Just Touch You


I Touch You

The Reach

Something has grown between us. A rope is wound tight around my emotions. It binds me and cuts off my breath, and it pulls me away from you. If I could just reach across this pain filled chasm that separates us and ignore the twisted, sharp pangs of mistrust. If I could just touch you and make you realize that everything is okay, then I could feel peace. I want to bound forward into a future where past mistakes have been erased. I want to continue a conversation in which the wrong lines of dialogue have been deleted.  I want to walk down a path from which I never strayed.

Are you there? Will you meet me?

Do I dare reach across and touch you?

I must dare, but I fear you might not still be there if I wait.

So I’d better do it now.

I touch you. And you are there. And we are there. And so we start again.

A story of the need to connect, as told by weeds.

Please come back tomorrow for a new “Weed Image of the Day” and let me know which ones you like.

We and our weeds are so much more than what we first appear to be.
