My Dearest Acquaintance

My Dearest Acquaintance

A Poem by Ethan
"

Goodbye and good luck.

"

You, who so swiftly entered my life on the heavenly whirlwind of angelic wings, are being taken away in a similar manner, abandoning me involuntarily for a better life. I am Elisha, forced to watch my friend, stolen by fiery chariots, fly to the holiest of lands unseen by any mortal eye. If a spirit of compassion would deliver me to her side, how I would thank him. 


But now, alone, I am mentally reviewing the atrocity done to me by Fate; that cruel old hag, pulling strings and matchmaking events without giving the slightest of thoughts to the souls she toys with. Only surpassing my great anger is grief. My heart recalls its former days, when she was there and melancholy was not. 


Distance is too far for my taste, I think; the memories vague, the hearts hardened. Not a friend, but an acquaintance. For better or worse I may never learn, I know only that your image will forever be branded in my eyes, leaving the sweet kiss of your kindness upon my exhausted mind.

This really cuts like a knife. I really admire your style, I'm new to poetry and I'm learning so much on here, and your poem has really inspired me to branch out! Your choice of language is phonomenal, and I like the intimate feel, as if your talking directly to me. Brilliant piece, :)

Angry, mournful, grieving loss and raging against "Fate that cruel old hag"- fiery imagery and references mesmerize. I feel your heart break and mine breaks with you. Powerful work.

Thanks :)))
Madame Fate can indeed be a cruel hag. Your words are powerfully emotional. Each person who walks into a life brands us in some way. It seems this one left a sweet impression. Lovely sentiments. Lydi**

Thank you Lydia
I am at a loss or words. I got curious to this piece and the moment I read it (aloud even) I was entranced. Such deep and powerful words that pull me into a story that many have experienced as well but the feelings in your piece continues to simmer in our tongues and hearts. Beautiful! I wish I could write with such creativity as you.

I like how you describe fate as a cruel old hag... I also love your word choices and the emotional depth you convey here. Sometimes it's difficult to differentiate between an acquaintance and a friendship...
A relatable write.
