Touch Me Not

My mom's words,
that I had a Midas touch
proved to be wrong
when I touched the 
Touch me not plant!
Thought, my touch didn't
work only with a single plant!
Tried my hands on other plants !
Same was the feel for them too!
They shrunk within!
Closing their eyes
they wilted away!
Even my breath seemed to be
filled with fire and heat
that made the delicate plants
wilt away!
Those that shrunk and wilted
till I stood next to them,
Woke up with new life,and energy
and looked up the sky
as soon as I moved away!
An unwelcomed touch
is a momentary death
even for a Touch Me Not Plant!!!!!
