Heart Strings

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.

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.

Sometimes, I am so overwhelmed by life...

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