Shadow

When you want to hold
Them,
But only their shadows
Touch your finger tips.

When you want to scold
Them,
But only gentle words fall
Out of your lips.

Grab them softly
Hold them firmly
And never let them go.

Unless they wriggle out
Of your buttered fingers,
Leaving but a mere stain upon your,
Bruised hand.
