Wow, this is just.... Amazing. Its so very beautiful, so clean, so wonderful. the cadence is perfect; I love how the rhyming just fit's you know? So many rhyming poems just sound forced and silly. Yours is the total opposite.You managed to keep the tone entrancing and ominous. So awesome. Great job, keep writing&*)

Mr. Hudson, I love how the darkness could mean anything in life. Lies, horrible debts, murder, anything! This is a wonderful poem to think about. I love the rhythm of it! If you wrote a book on how to write poems, I can assure you, it would be sell over 1 million copies! If you weren't thinking about doing something like that, you should definitely have it be an example in somebody else's. Great work, don't stop writing, and HAVE FUN!

Very beautiful. The rhythm is consistent and the wording had just the right amount of repetition and symbolism to keep me feeling very impressed all the way through. This is by far the best poem I have read on figment yet.
One thing: I didn't really like the word choice of "rambled" in the line "Through the fires we had rambled" (i think that's right). Even if the fires were metaphorical fires, the two words just don't seem to click. Since a ramble is usually a walk taken for pleasure, the two lovers in this poem would have to be some serious masochists to enjoy rambling through fire (which I interpreted as fights). I know it's hard to find a rhyme with "ambled," but that is the final piece of this wonderful poem that would make it complete. (obviously my opinions, and you don't have to take them seriously!) :)
