You're like a bad hair day or rush hour traffic
You're like small talk from strangers or those really slow mall walkers
You're like a dead remote control or a flat tire on the way to work
You're like writer's block that goes on for months or a malicious tornado that destroys an entire town
He's like a sunny day with a warm breeze or a reading brand new book
He's like a fresh blanket right out of the dryer or blasting a favorite song with the windows down
He's like hot chocolate on a cold winters night or watching the perfect sunset
He's like the perfect hug or finding money in an old jean pocket
I am like a river. Sometimes unsteady but always flowing, always moving forward.
Because I like to think it's my turn to enjoy a beautiful sunset instead of getting slaughtered by a tornado.
Twinkling stars fall from the night sky
and gently descend to the earth-
Like a dew drop kissing a blade of grass,
the glittery white star nestles herself amongst the others-
The stars sugar coat the vast green space
and eliminate color from below.
Friendship when school ends is like the leaves of a tree:
Spring begins, trees filled with healthy green leaves,
As does friendships within the year.
Summer is the end.
You fill the leaves with hope,
You love these leaves,
You've always intended to keep contact,
But inevitably, Time does change.
And Autumn comes,
And these leaves that previously you had so dearly loved
Start to fade away.
You didn't intend on this,
You were so eager to keep in touch,
But people change, as do leaves.
The once vibrant green you had known and loved
Transform into an ugly unfamiliar brown,
As you desperately cling to these leaves,
Hoping for them to stay this beautiful green you once knew.
Soon you are just standing around these empty trees
That were once so familiar to you,
But now around you all these dead leaves.
Then it's Winter,
And these leaves slowly fade away
Behind blankets of white,
Never to be seen again.
And you just stand there, surrounded by nothingness.
Cold and alone.
like that breath of fresh air above the smog.
like that perfect pillow your neck needs at night.
like that last Sudoku box to fill.
like two opposite poles of a magnet held together.
like a child discovering the magic of candy.
like the computing powers hidden in your head.
like that mythical beast you find after giving up looking for.
like an avalanche disturbing a still Alpine noon.
with the nurturing touch of a gardener.
like the song you can't get out of your head.
like the flame burning bright amidst the grey.
like the hope of a better way.
A woman is like a candle,
full of warmth, and bright.
When the world is at its darkest,
a good one can be your light.
She'll bring such heat and beauty,
to see you through the night.
Though storms leave you in darkness,
with her there, you feel alright.
A woman is like a candle, true.
a necessity to have around-
but if denied the proper attention
she could burn your house to the ground.
Without rhyme or reason
Would read better
With alliterations like...
Wonderfully woven words;
Sunrise kisses rosebuds to blossom;
Maybe similes like...
As busy as a bee.
