How Much is Too Much? – Written Wednesday 14th October 2009 (Aged 34)

How Much is Too Much?

how much is too much
is too much
just too little?
is human touch
just too brittle

how long is too long
is too long
never long enough?
is it worthwhile
for human touch
to compliment a smile

how much is too far
is too far
just not far enough?
does it ever add up
the things we clutch

how rough is too rough?
is too rough
never rough enough?
is it an emotional fight
a push, a pull, a blush

how much is too much
is too much
just too soft
is human touch
when we feel less lost?
