Dear Friend #2 - Poem by Heather Burns

I have searched for you
Our hands almost touching

you were violently jerked
away

floating into the sea of life
I miss you.

    Your poem expresses one of those almost-but-not-quite moments when a happiness which might have been lasting is rudely taken from us. It's an experience we can all appreciate in the first person and so your poem speaks to us. I like the way you lined it with such originality of form. The two characters and essential emotion are highlighted, namely, I - YOU - I MISS YOU - which also suggests I missed you since before the SEA OF LIFE swept in OUR HANDS ALMOST/TOUCHING shows how close we can come to success before it is VIOLENTLY JERKED/AWAY. Preserving these moments of loss in a poem is one way to be reconciled to life. (Report) Reply
