Mamie Free

(May 10,1978 / Greenville, Sinoe Country, Liberia.)

When We First Met


With eyes wide open
Stiring into the deep blue sky,
Your first question to me,
What is your name pretty?
I felt like the first time hearing this question.

As you softly held my hand
I got a ship wreck in my belly.
I was scared but joyful.

With my microscopic eyes
I piears through your heart
and drew you close to me.

We sat down for tea and
milkshaked and on the story goes.

    Nothing can surpass the feeling when you first discover that you're in love.
    I felt the goosebumps. And I hope that your story lasts forever. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
