First contact


A shocking display
Coming straight my way
Mouth open, nothing comes out
There is still time, without a doubt

To get your attention
What should I mention?
Wondering what I can say.
To get you in my life, how should I play?

Should I call you beautiful?
But such a word to me is hurtful
Because you are much more
A beauty without any flaw

You turn heads
Men dream of you in their beds
How can I make you see nothing but me?
You command such power weak men flee

I am not weak, I know I’m strong
I put it in my head I can’t go wrong
I stop you in your path
Words come out, you smile a laugh
I get your name
First contact has been made in this life game

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
