...like the breeze

those boys i knew before
were nothing compared to you
they were like the airy breeze of a carousel
blowing wisps of hair across my cheek
they were the scent of cotton candy on the air
little flames so safe and easy to control
and flickering gently through my mind

those boys i knew before
were colorless compared to you
for you were a red raging fire
singeing my skin scorching my lungs
you were the rush and the roar of
waves of white heat slamming into me
burning effortlessly through my psyche

those boys i knew before
were nothing compared to you
for they were merely boys
you were persuasive forceful and brutal
you took me places they had never been
you took what you wanted
and my soul is still stinging

...like the breeze
