'I'Ve Watched You Walk' - Poem by Kelly Seale

I've watched you walk
between the sunshine and the rain.
I've watched you walk
on a tightrope, between pleasure and pain.

I've watched you walk
on the edge of sanity and madness.
Iv'e watched you walk
on the borderline of joy and sadness.

Girl, you're the epitome
of a double-edged sword...
Dancin' with the Devil,
and prayin' with the Lord.

I've watched you walk
into my life, and right out of it, again and again.
Yet; I can't figure you out,
nor; do I know where we are going, or where we will end.

You seem to think
that it's all a game-
To the victor, the spoils-
To the loser, it's shame.

I've watched you walk
between the realm of life and death.
Between every single heartbeat-
Between every precious breath.

I've watched you walk on water,
I've seen you spread your wings and fly.
I've brought you up when you were down-
You've brought me down, when you were high.

Girl, you're drivin' me crazy,
and I don't know what I'm gonna' do.
I guess I'll just keep on keepin' on-
Watchin' you walk, 'cause I'm hopelessly in love with you.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

You know that there are relationships that just seem 'impossible, ' and you can never really walk away because of the intensity of passion shared by both people. 'I've Watched You Walk, ' was one of those relationships.

    Are you a musician? I've noticed a lot of your poems read as lyrics. This poem does capture the 'impossible' romance, held back often by barriers that can be overcome. To me it seems to be about a close friend. Hate being friendzoned! (Report)Reply

    The complexity of people and relationships, you've captured perfectly. Love the contradictions because they're just so truly human...not to mention frustrating...but all at once beautiful. (Report)Reply
