Boys smell good, have smooth bodies
to run your fingers over…………
& when boys love you, it’s early morning sunshine
with no clouds.
Boys wrap their arms around you
tell long boring stories of other girls
& boys can’t see the cracks in the pavement
or wonder when tomorrow will come.
Boys are dangerous, their love ensnares you
the sex is always 2am and continuing,
& the goodbyes raw and confusing,
boys make you cry!
I loved a boy once, he had green eyes
told me he would love me forever:
& his morning kisses were sweeter than
anything I had ever known.
Boys leave you, often without warning,
they leave gaps in the fabric of your universe
tears in the structure of your environment
a monsoon in your heart.
I had a boy once………………
