Touch you with my words…

This past weekend has been all about me being lazy, somewhat selfish, staying indoors and watching movies…one of the movies I watched is called, “The Sessions”.  It’s a heartfelt movie, a feel-good story with an uplifting ending and irreproachable educational value.  It’s a picture based closely on fact, and it’s dedicated to “Mark O’Brien,” one of its central characters. Mark (John Hawkes) had polio when he was a child and became paralyzed in all but his head.  Inspired by the words below…

♥ Love this poem from the movie…resonates:

“Let me touch you with my words
For my hands lie limp as empty gloves
Let my words stroke your hair
Slide down your back
And tickle your belly
For my hands, light and free flying as bricks
Ignore my wishes
And stubbornly refuse to carry out my quietest desires
Let my words enter your mind
Bearing torches
Admit them willingly into your being
So they may caress you gently

Mark O’Brien – Love poem to no one in particular
