When sometimes it's like this, but sometimes it's like that.
is as poisonous as the bite of a snake
is addictive like heroine
is exciting like a shock of electricity
is as warm as freshly dried sheets
is as sweet as sugar straight from the jar
is as bright as the sunshine at midday
is white like the fairest of them all
is big like their loving heart to match
is as infectious as the black death
is humorous like the stylings of an A-list stand up comic
is as loud as the howl of wolves
is inviting like the atmosphere of home
all the good things:
their touch, their smile, their laugh,
mask the bad things:
their temper, their thoughts, their words
is as hot as the Sahara desert
is short-lived like the life of a common house fly
is aggressive like a predator in pursuit of prey
is scary like the first few minutes of a flight after take off
are as dark as the ocean at it’s lowest point
are sporadic like the scattering of leaves in the fall
are entrapping like the confines of the smallest prison prison cell
are as distracting as the constant tick-tock of a clock
are as painful as a hundred lashes on bare skin
are as empty as the words of a fictional character
are as sharp as the tongue of a harpy speaking their greatest wits
are reckless like the stumbling attempts of a child lying for the first time
somewhere within the all the positive qualities, we forget there are negative ones too. don’t be blind to the hurt they may cause just because it feels good sometimes. let yourself be happy without the things they give you. love yourself.
Please feel free to comment any suggestions or observations you have! I love getting feedback on my work. I'd be curious to know what you think about the specific dynamics (bold and italics) I used with this and why. And also on some of the comparisons I used for their characteristics and features.
I fell in love with this composition of mine; it's definitely one of my favorite, right next to Desperation which is also on my page.
