Touch (two versions)

I.

The touch of a hand
on your arm,
or on your leg,
accompanied by a laugh,
can make you feel
desired.
Whether it’s real or
only your imagination,
your pulse still
quickens
and the ghost of her touch
fades slowly.

II.

Her fingers rest lightly
on your wrist,
silencing for a moment
the internal chatter that says
“You’re not good enough.”
