Boys Are Like Dessert


Tall.

Muscular.

Handsome.

Sparkling sapphire eyes rest within the contours of his chiseled face.

Attentive, bright, respectful.

Strong hands for building,

covers my own.

A sweet shield-

All American beauty

Makes his father proud.

Any girl would be honored to have him.

What is wrong with me?

This loyal dog at my side,

my sweet security blanket.

Soft and warm, but suffocating.

sheltering me, smothering me with love.

I love him.

Yes, sadly.

My heart beats for him.

Steady.

Not the rapid pattering of a heart in love.

just that.

Content, but still hungry…

This apple pie looks absolutely perfect

even a la mode.

But my mouth waters for seductive tiramisu.

Love it! It's got a sad tone to it, but a feeling that I know I've had before. This sums up all those feelings perfectly. We should be happy with these perfect boys, but we're always looking for that little something extra, that kind of fairy-tale feeling of love we've wanted all our loves. I love the comparison of boys to dessert. The only thing I would say to clean this up and make it a little smoother would be to fix up some of the grammar. Other than that, though, it's great!

The poem remind me of a old saying. "We always want what we don't have." I like the description and story in the poem. I agree with you. Some people (Woman/men) can tempt you like good food or a delicious pie a la mode. A outstanding poem.

Hi, I'm new here. A popular theme in my writing is sexuality. I think it's very important for a person to be in tune with their sexual side. I don't like to follow any poetry "rules"- just like to wr.. more..
