You Had Me At Hello

by Krista   Jan 12, 2012


Fireworks explode across the pages in my mind,
Taking me back to the first time we met.
It's a fairytale, a sweet story of love,
Capturing two lost souls in this mad world.

One simple word takes me back to that place,
The loneliness I've felt evaporates into the air.
One smile breaks the lock over my mending heart,
Chains covering old wounds shatter with ease.

Happiness replaces any lost or hurt I've felt,
Your voice bringing me to a calm I'd never known.
Peace fills my mind whenever I'm near you.
Darling, you had me at hello.

    Krista, this poem is very beautiful with its simplistic words and meaning but I found it to be unique though I see poems like this a lot. You came at the poem from a different view with a happy ending and a sweet story that makes the reader feel at ease and also like they are the one receiving the love from this wonderful person. The structure was solid and it had a good overall flow that carried from line to line.

    "One simple word takes me back to that place,
    The loneliness I've felt evaporates into the air.
    One smile breaks the lock over my mending heart,
    Chains covering old wounds shatter with ease."

    This had to be my favorite stanza and I also think the strongest one though I might lean more to the last one being stronger. Anyway, the stanza had some wonderful imagery and your emotions and feelings come off the paper with good taste and clarity.

    Overall, this poem has a ton of potential as a wonderful piece and as far as I am concerned it is perfect in many aspects. Many people can relate to this poem to, which makes it even more meaningful to that person. I'm glad to see your writing skills improving. Great job and keep writing!
