Treasure Island

Amanda Deupree


Since When


Suddenly I don't know what to say or what to do.
I'm spending far too much time in a dream.
Too much time just thinking of you,
and since when did you know
all the right things to say?
Since when did I worry
about my hair falling the right way?
It came right out of the blue
we were friends, nothing more.
Now it's begun to change
and I am looking for the cure.

Since when did you
stop my heart on a dime?
Since when did I
start counting down the time?
When did your smile
start sending chills down my spine?
When did I start wishing
that someday you'd be mine?
It makes no sense to me.
Please can you explain,
how the touch of your hand
makes me forget so much pain?

Since when did I
become so invisible?
Since when did you
make me invincible?
I'm searching for words
confusing sentences again?
Lost in imagination.
Wanting so bad to let you in!

Since when my dear?
Since when?

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

70

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

I slew a worm the other day—
