Miles Apart

Miles Apart

A Poem by Lisasview
"

I wrote this poem when I was in my early 20's...In the 70's... Just a few things were changed, with the help of Richard.

"

                
          Miles Apart....         

              Separated by miles 
              that keep us apart,
              my heart's
              still holding yours.

              Our love
              lingers-on,
              like the delicate web
              of an evil spider;
              the spider, but a toy 
              between us.

              Air hangs heavy
              between our hearts;
              still, longing for
              more time together.
              
              Yet,
              when I sit alone 
              thinking of you,
              your tenderness
              surrounds me 
                ... even now.
                    
                 ~~~

The warmth and spirit of a loved one remains with us even after they are long departed. We may not feel their touch any longer but as long as they remain alive in our memory the miles seem just that bit closer. It's a sad piece with your loss, love and acceptance of it here for all to read. Touching poem, Lisa. ⚘

Your poem is immensely beautiful.
It is said that it's not goodbye that hurts but the flashback that follows, but then sometimes that flashback ,those memories might give you the warmth and tenderness while wondering alone.
Indeed great piece of art.

My pleasure :)
Distance can make or break a relationship. Separation can indeed hang heavy. Seems like the author is carrying a torch for this love even though it may not have worked out. Lingering romance detected. Lovely work Lisa. I can see this is an early write from many years ago that Richard has helped you to refine.

That's the sentiment everyone could wish would be communicated from their loves. I get it, not everyone is capable of saying such things, but if someone wrote that to me, well, let's just say I'd be very thankful. Moving heaven and earth thankful. Your poem is romance. Loved it.

Your metaphor in the second stanza is perfect. Your poetry style here sculpts so succinctly a long distance love/longing.
