Walk For You

Walk For You

A Poem by LivingDeath

I walked across the entire city, from end to end, just to see her face.


I walked across this snow swept city

to see your perfect face,

I walked right through the freezing air

to feel your warm embrace...


I walked right through the empty night

under the moons' soft glow,

I walked until I saw you there

sheltered from all the snow.


You saw me stand there all alone

your eyes defied the stars,

time stood still as our hearts beat on

that moment forever ours.


You took me in your warm embrace

and gave me love's sweet kiss,

you took away the pain I felt

it's you I've always missed.


Then the moon struck high

and the door was locked,

we said goodbyes

and then I walked.

Author's Note

I intentionally made the ending seem rushed/ abrupt to symbolize that a moment so perfect, so surreal, can be over before you know it. So cherish the moments that you get so you can look back on these moments and be able to feel how you were feeling then. Moments come and go in a heart beat, memories will last forever.

Very cool write. Been there but it was in the rain, and I got sick, but it was worth it.

This is true, moments go by so fast but at least you have the memories.

nice read,

i did wish it wasnt such an abrupt ending but i understand why you chose to do so.
overall, a nice piece. i would say its very lyrical. good overall word choice but i still think a little more should be added toward the end. if not after the last stanza than before it.. but i feel its lacking that sense of completeness or unity.
but really,
good job

I really liked this..she is really worth it you know..
I will walk a thousand miles ..weather be hot or cold
i will walk night and day if the skies were bright or had no moons
its all dark and i see you see your eyes and so its lights everywhere
you turned on my day..it was a long night till you came in
in the snow i felt all the warmth,that embrace and that kiss you took all the pain
thats why i loved you and always will..you are too good to be true..how i loved you..
your words just shattered my lockers and so this is it
really loved this..inspiring
lovely write..
