Treasure Island

when I first met you

when I first met you I already knew,
When I first met you the sky was so blue.
When I first met you my eyes were only set on you.
when I first met I was feeling so bad,
that was only because I had a fight with my dad.

When I first met you, you said come with me,
when I first met you I fill so so free.
When I first met you my heart was filled with glee,
when I first met you we played whoopy.

When I first met you you already knew,
When I first met my mind was set only on you.
when I first met you I said got to go,
But hey we are now together what do you know,
When I first met you! ! !

    Reads very nicely and the repetition of “when I first met you..” works very well. Well done. (Report) Reply

    First...met...these two words give this poem its meaning, that reminds us of a primordial dawn...God said to the prophet Jeremy, I think: 'I knew you before you were born'. (Report) Reply

poet Emily Dickinson


"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!
