Skinned Knees

Skinned Knees
15

 

Your eyes are like the ocean

Deep and blue.

Your skin like sand

Warm and rough.

Your body like a beach

I can lie on.

Your gaze like the sun

Burning down. 

Your touch like a breeze

Washing over me.

Your smile like a little tornado

Stirring butterflies.

Your body like the sky

Looming over me.

Your kiss like lightning

Strikes me down.

Your intensity like an earthquake

Making me tremble.

Your heart like a rock

Weighing you down.

You're a world of your own.

But you don't belong to me.
