For You. - Poem by Christopher Holmberg

For you.

With an eye for genuine wisdom,
I clutched your hand and lured you in.
Across an enchanted forest with impassable fog,
I made out your face and it was honest beauty.

You hymned my name through the soft coiled mist,
I replied with what I thought a memorable kiss.
Covered with impeccable virtue and confident style,
I rose to my feet and stared for a time.

With shivers and shocks from your mesmerising debris,
I fell into a dream where I strolled on the sea.
But still I searched for your dear vacant soul,
To uncover and save it was my only ambition.

You laughed and cried and never whispered goodbye,
It was a staggering day though full of passionate sighs.
Yet still in my mind I pondered the heavenly,
Your elegant figure succumbed to my imaginable finger.

I noticed you in a dream last night bordering confession,
Our eyes sealed with an everlasting obsession.
I had you then but now I cease to ask for reality,
Was it I you adored, or the company we implored?

    I consider this a well written love letter addressed to a lovely damsel, a love letter that is not written in standard form but in poetry form. I should say in prose and that makes it more romantic. Well done, mate.10+ (Report) Reply

    “For you”…it is a message of different meaning according to who will read it. However I am sure that the author has his own message- the message that is really the reason why he wrote it.
    Indeed, allow me to say that your poem is fitting to different angles of life’s reality. It could be love for man and woman, or a feeling/desire of deep devotion to someone; while it could be the love of God to his creation…
    It is deep and meaningful…nice one.

    and for you dear poet...all the best. thanks (Report) Reply

    This poem is extremely well-written. It seems to be either a chance encounter or a figment of your imagination- this woman. You could post it on Craigslist in the Missed Connections section - put a link to your poems. I don't mean that to reflect negatively on your poem it just seems fitting. (Report) Reply
