Once Upon a Touch — After Pearl Jam, Once (a golden shovel poem)

hand-touching-skin

You touch me only once, 
and I feel fire upon 
my skin! You are like
shooting star, through time! 
You burn your marks right in —
thought I could resist, that I could 
keep my flesh under control
now I simply sigh, and lose myself.
