    An itch

    This itch, I am sure
    you might have felt it too,
    on the skin and the scalp,
    on the four nails
    that scratch
    and make issues
    big enough to
    leave a patch.

    when in love,
    nails scratch and
    fingers feel the
    flakes;
    when not in love,
    nails scratch and
    fingers complain.

    when in love,
    skin scrunches up
    and forgets
    it's exposed,
    when not in love
    skin still,
    scrunches up
    but now it knows
    that it is exposed.

    An itch is an excuse
    for contact,
    lust always comes to the
    rescue,
    maybe this is the case,
    what keeps a contact apart
    is a lotion
    and that too
    temporarily.

    Some people go ashtray
    while itching and some
    like to scratch and feel,
    this itch, I am sure
    you might have felt it too
    on the skin and the scalp
    and the four nails
    that scratch.
