Almost anyone who has been separated from a loved one can relate to this poem, which manages to say a lot in only a few words.

Having been in a long distance relationship many years ago, this poem reminded me of the difficulties and the desire to be with that special someone. This poem made me feel hopeful. When that loved one is far away, one can only hope and long for their return. Well written Robert.

This is an insightful, and very beautiful poem whose quiet power and meaning startle the reader after finishing it, and bring to mind many varied thoughts, and sensations. Restrained, elegant, and utterly memorable.

Honestly, the cover for me doesn't speak to the poem at all, unless maybe the pain that comes with distance. I have to say this was a beautiful poem; exquisitely written and I actually never re-read anything--this will however remain in my Kindle for just that purpose.

I have to say as well, the best present one could get, is one written in words like this. And to share this pain/love with the world is truly a phenomenal and unique gift on top of it. It's one of my favorites, but there are so many of his works that I love, many of which are not published (this is the 3rd pubbed work I've read), and additional works can be found on his blog.

‘I would’ closes the distance between three points, separation, longing and connection, each word perfectly selected and placed precisely resulting in a stunning piece to create a wormhole in your soul.

The Short Version
I Would, by Robert Zimmermann, is a poem full of longing and loss. It's a short read—just one poem—but I really enjoyed it. It's the sort of poem you reread, and one I suspect will develop new meaning as you experience new adventures and heartache through life.

The Details
The poem's basic storyline follows the narrator, who is explaining how much he misses someone. It's built in a way that can lend itself to nearly any close relationship, which I liked. It can have multiple meanings depending on your current walk of life.

This is a sad piece that I reread to fully appreciate, and I can definitely empathize with the sense of emptiness the poem creates. It becomes more powerful with each read, which I always admire in a poem.

I don’t want to give away too much more, but here's the bottom line: I really enjoyed this poem. I hope you give it a read and maybe a reread, too, because I like to think you'll enjoy it as well.

The Disclaimer
I received an ARC from the author for an honest review. 4.5 star rating.

Anyone who has been or is in a long distant relationship can relate to this poem. The author expertly describes the frustrations and longings in his own quirky way.
