by Brian Fuchs
I grasp for her, for who we were,
for what I wish I could will her to be;
she slips through fingers too ill equipped
to manage with the wetness of our friendship.
In vain, I clutch too hard;
the last of what we are escapes silently.
Author's Note: She and I are in the midst of a friendship lull. I hope it all turns around for us in the end.
