Love To a Friend

Your news, a blow to the chest
My heart convulsing from the pain
The final wisps of hope evaporating
Though not an unanticipated surprise
The actuality of it breeds misery
I ache for you in this experience
Disbelief in the actions of another
You parlayed with your heart
For many a year winning the game
Now the game is lost and too the love
Through waves of energy
Across the vast distance
I send you a loving embrace
For I feel helpless, angry and saddened
On your behalf.
