Friendships – A Cinquain Series

can be wrenching
your heart from hands that vowed
to cherish a bond but clutched it
too tight

can be lasting
like sturdy oaks spreading
their roots deep into soft soil of
the earth

can be prickly –
while reaching for the rose
heart unwittingly pierced by
a thorn

can be scented
with trust’s mellow fragrance
infusing a relationship
with love

can be hating
the one who held you close
then walked away without saying

can be holding
memories in your heart
for times when you miss those you love
too much
