poem- distance does not change the feelings September 26, 2013

The distance does not change the feelings.

the reeling,


squealing of my soul,

no longer whole.

The space between us stretches

and in the distance you grow small

and old,

But time has folds

in dreams I hold

you close

My soul finds healing.

Though space and time change feelings,

you haven’t changed at all.

    I love it and agree …

    Distance doesn´t change the way we feel.

    Going further I would say that distance can turn the initial feeling into a more powerful one …

    Cheers, Shawn; Aquileana 🙂
