Just one touch
that is all it took
to hurt and scar a little boy

Just one look
to turn the child to stone
and freeze up every time he is hurt

Just one hand
to cover his mouth
"If you tell I will kill you!"

Just one man
to satisfy his own needs
even if it scars the boy for life

Just one boy
from many boys
lost in this nightmare

Michael Joseph

Just one touch

so many feeling I have about my life, and I do not always know how to put words down in story form. And in poems they come alive. I am tired, and have been tired, I just want to be held sometimes. Who will hold me? Is there a safe room in MN if I go? I will ask, so if you are willing to hold let me know, mj.

Dear Michael,

I don't think that you are the only one concerned about being loved, cared for or held, whether it be MN or where ever we find ourselves.
I posted in the, "MN or Bust," thread how frightened and insecure I felt about showing up in MN with all of this talk of A-B-U-S-E. My God, sitting here and typing about all of the things that have happened to me, all of the rotten things that I've thought about, is one thing. But, to look at you guys in the eyes and tell my story, or hear yours, first hand or "study" about it in some session--God, I may spend my entire time in some safe room or niche waiting for someone to come by and hold me.
Tell you what, Michael Joseph, you hold me and I'll hold you, OK? Settled.
