Loving poetry written under a single lamp in a college dorm room.

hello distance
hello horizon
hello lonesome stars
if you're out there i'm seeking
know that i'm seeking
know that i'm dreaming
and know that i'm searching
hello distance– hello
Hello Distance was something that drew my attention with the minimalist cover and the beautiful summary. Back when I was younger, I used to always write poetry as a way to escape problems I had in my childhood, whether it be from the lack of friends to the lack of attention from my family and my parent's fighting. My own poetry was just so depressing that I don't even want to look at it anymore. Since then, I haven't really picked up any poetry books or even did so much as look at poetry. I figured I'd give this a try. I'm glad I did.

Mr. Wallock is a wonderful poet. You feel the emotion within every word, every verse, while things flowed nicely. My biggest concern when reading poetry is for the lack of flow when it comes to the writer and the lack of meaning of each word. However, my concern was crushed the more I continued to read. Each poem seemed connected to the others, creating its own story. It was absolutely beautiful.

If you like poetry, I would definitely recommend this. It will capture your heart and your soul.
