MAGIC OF A HUG!

MAGIC OF A HUG!

A Poem by heartspeaks
"

Hugs make me emotional

"
People hug each other whenever they meet
Be it school, college, home or street,
This always seemed awkward to me,
I never really got the twisting philosophy,
I hug, but only when I really need,
Doing it all the time seemed a tiring deed,
But once I hugged someone
 that I love way too much,
and secretly wished for the time to last forever,
To never leave the serene touch,
The emotions that are stirred by it,
Are so heavy and strong,
It acts as an auto-correct,
To all the things that have gone wrong,
Not much of a hugger still,
But now when I do, I wish the world stands still,
Cause the warmth, the peace, The comfort and the ease,
Nothing can be compared, To that feeling which lights up,
The worse gloomy times,
and different situations,
have different kinds,
A long one to express 
How long you've missed someone,
A tight one to express 
The happiness beyond the bounds,
But the best one is ,
Where you just wrap the arms,
Bracing the loved one close enough,
The one that someone craves,
When he is need of strength to be tough,
A hug that simply tells,
"I am here, Don't you worry love,
I will always be here for you",
Now I feel that's what, the hugs transfer through,
So without any adieu 
Hug the nearest person to you,
And if not a person,
Even your pillow will do.......

I'm a hugger.....always been, and I can appreciate this poem, for it's something that had to be written. Someone had to note down what it means to be hugged. However, despite the important theme, and occasional juicy line, the poem lacks in musicality. I feel like it's something I repeat often in my critiques, but it's something that's really really important in poetry. If your words don't dance, they have no power. What I notice in this poem is that you attempt to rhyme in couplets. Or so you start off doing so, then you kind of break item and lose the thread only to come back to it by the end (that coming back to it is good, but the way you broke from it was a bit iffy). But since you intend on rhyming, the rhymes are the last beats of the lines, and so the lines have to hit them hard. If there's so much in between, then the lines sound bad. If there is flow (relatively seamless flow), then the words dance, the rhymes are hit with a bang, and your readers have a wonderful experience.....to really feel the magic of a hug!

Now I'm not saying what you have is bad, but rather I'm saying that it could be much better than it is. It could truly be a gem if worked at a little, and tweaked in the necessary places. Good start!

p.s. I think a better word would be "ado" not "adieu" ("ado" means fuss; trouble, whereas "adieu" means goodbye. You could play with "adieu" for a bit of wit, but in that particular line, "ado" would work more.

I grew up in a family who loved a lot, but didn't hug a lot. I've learned how important a hug is, and often ask for one, if I feel the need. I give plenty out as well. I enjoyed your poem and the message it contained.

Thankyou, right back at you.🎈
This poem brought tears in my eyes. I want to feel the warmth of a hug, such are your words. I am feeling very alone at this precise moment and your poem made me feel the warmth to have someone.

I agree. The magic of the hug. Needed to be received and given. People need contact and re-assurance. They are cared for and not forgotten. Thank you my friend for sharing the amazing poetry.

I did enjoy and you are welcome my friend.
no criticisms, dear...the poem is very lovely, and the last ending lines are more beautiful, that hug your pillow, if you can't anyone else.
Good poem:)

I've never been a big hugger, but I can appreciate them. You've beautifully expressed what a hug with the right person can mean. Such a powerful poem. Very well done.

Hugs are one of the most powerful weapons, just next to love. A hug contains powers unimaginable. Loved your take on them. It was quite relatable. Nicely done!
