A Walk to Remember (11/1/2003)
Beautiful cloudless sky
Endless mass of stars above
Two forms walked forward
Walked only looking ahead
He held her hand in his
She rested her head on his arm
Silently they walked in sync along the path
Only one set of footsteps could be heart
Just one powerful heartbeat could be sensed
The pair was one.
Every night the pair walked
Hand in hand for hours on end
Every night they never spoke
Just cherished the moments together
This evening would be the final night
Until a year passed
For he was leaving
And she would be left behind
This night their pattern was dismissed
For he broke the silence
And she broke the touch between them
“I love you,” he whispered silently
She looked up at him teary-eyed
“I love you, too,” she answered
With a hint of sadness in her voice
He grabbed her hand
She placed her head on his shoulder
They walked on again until the night was over
Until the miles no longer stood between he and she
A walk to remember this would be.
A poem I wrote when I was 16, presented for Throwback Thursday. Barf! It reads like more like a short story than a poem… a bad, broken, improperly formatted story… and apparently I didn’t realize you don’t have to capitalize every line… and that poems should flow instead of read awkwardly… and that it is just completely horrible.
Do you have old work that makes you cringe?
