Boys smell good, have smooth bodies

to run your fingers over


& when boys love you, its early morning sunshine

with no clouds.


Boy’s 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

sex is always 2.a.m 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.
