The only people who don't get anywhere are the people who don't dream of a better place for themselves...

In this distance,
Still remembering...
Darling, please tell me,
When will you sing?
Numb to the flames crawling across my skin,
Forgetting, losing...
Who I thought I was,
What I made myself believe...
I'm only a fading voice without...
Breathing in another far away night,
Thinking, praying...
Am I still in your dreams? 

Or am I forced to surrender to a silence that screams...

....You were just my Imagination?

Wondering if a love that was shared still exists....

The Poem is an artform few understand, and even fewer can execute. Every one of yours is another strong example of why we still write, and read them.

"...If the Thames that ran beside them...recalled a night where the moon shone as brightly as a shilling on the same boy and girl... and thought to themselves, 'at last, the wheel comes full circle,' they kept their silence."

Your style is very consistant and I love it a lot. Maybe, though, you can switch it up a little sometimes for more variety. Not completely though! This is awesome :P
