Default Touch Lamp Circuit

I'm looking to design and make my own touch lamp. I can only find circuitry that allows me to touch on and touch off. I want the lamp to only be on when I'm holding it. As though my hand completes the circuit, and without my hand, it's off.

Anyone have any ideas on this, please?

Thanks for reading,
