While You Weren't Looking


While you weren’t looking,
I was.
I was looking at you.
I was smiling at your smile.
I was laughing at your laugh.
I was falling in love with you.

While you weren’t looking,
I wanted you to.
I wanted you to look at me.
I wanted you to smile at me.
I wanted you to laugh with me.
I wanted you to love me too.

While you weren’t looking,
You
Became my everything.

    Most poets will agree with this formula to instant success
    in poetry. Have a singular clear simple thought and drive
    it home with a repeated line. Hopefully one of uniqueness
    and merit. This line is not unique but it is meritorious. The
    formula is sound and does work here. The writing contained
    a bit of determined emotion that was communicated to the reader.
    This adds to the poems quality. Again, nothing special, but
    nothing to lessen the poem. A 9.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
