As a person deeply devoid
Of warm and snuggly hugs,
I end up wondering how often
Do people hug someone
Who clearly, desperately needs one?
And as is human nature,
My train of thoughts lead me
To another subset -
How does everyone's hug feel like?
Do they feel like the gigantic
Grip of a python engulfing its prey?
Or do they feel like the soft touch
Of a feather that ever so gracefully
Land on the skin and glide away?
I also wonder if their hugs feel
Like the icy fangs of the
Severest winter winds,
With their arms dangling by their body,
While you search for warmth
In their zombified embrace;
Or if they feel like the
Loveliest spring morning,
With each second of the hug
Resembling a blooming petal.
Irrespective, it must feel good
To receive a hug once in a while,
No matter how warm or cold it is.
