Need a hug?

Silence in embrace.
No, not silent…the song of a hug.
Bodies push together, head to toe;
Arms wrap tight around;
Leg junctions press against thighs.

No, not silent…a moan of pleasure.
Bodies mold together, two become as one;
Comfort given, a thought of understanding;
Breasts touch breasts.

No, not silent…a sigh from a warmed soul.
Bodies compress, a shield to turn the world away;
Hidden from the bitter, covered against the cruel;
Hands pet and soothe the bruise.

No, not silent…the song of a hug.
Bodies join, heart caresses heart;
The spoken gift, gentle and sincere;
“I love you, friend”.

Ivan,
I used to think I could "chug" a hug. I was wrong.
