I took one look at you
and I knew:
I was doomed

I was never to see the light of day
I was never to hear the sound of birds
I was doomed

You captured me
You made me listen to only you
I was doomed

I never saw people the same way
Their flaws came to me
Like colors bursting off a white page

You were the one I wanted
The only one I needed
And I knew one thing:
I was doomed

It's about that one person, who you totally fall for. They take up your thoughts, and you compare them to everyone else. Its that perfection they have that no one else ever will.

I like how you kept repeating the same line over and over. The repetition added to the meaning of the poem. Nice work! Check out some of my poems, too if you'd like. Keep writing!
