"Bowing gratefully to all of my subjects, 'thank you. Thank you. The pleasure is mine." Nah, I'm just kidding. We're all kings together.'"
~Thesilentraven


So many people
I long to embrace
one last time.
To hold their firm
shoulders,
their fluttering
hearts,
their shining
souls.
I long to just
one
more
time
know their
shattered hopes,
and their
growing dreams.
I long to
once
again
laugh with them
during their
greatest triumphs,
and to weep
beside them
when they have
fallen far.
Now,
I can only
watch,
Soul-yearning
from a distance,
tugged along
a shimmering string
leading from their
hearts
to mine.
I attached it
long ado,
before it was
painful,
back when we
were best-friends.
We are best friends
no longer,
the string
pulls me forward,
relentlessly,
tortuously,
never
letting
me
close
enough
to
touch.

Never compare your life with others, as you have no idea what their journey is all about.

Nice work! I read most of your works and I am at a loss of words. There is so much to say; i mean to appreciate. I hope you don't mind. You have a great way of expression.....

Sometimes, I am so overwhelmed by life...

There are a few people that I would love to envelop in an embrace.

I will maximize the praise of Madam Mimirocks by saying 'I really really really really really really like it.' I loved how short the lines are and how you illustrated the frustration of longing. The poetry is, of course, excellent.
