The Boys I Loved


I knew a boy who was like a warm hug
Who never failed to make me feel
More than just comfort.
We’d laugh about dumb jokes
And speak in song lyrics.

I knew a boy who was like a shining star
Who never failed to reassure me when life
Gave me more than I could carry.
He’d carry burdens and
Erase my worries.

I knew a boy who was like a fire
Who burned with passion
For life.
We’d talk about everything
And enjoy our time in reality.

I knew a boy who was like a drum
Beating out rhythms
To keep me in time.
We’d accept each other
Past flaws and mistakes.

I knew a boy who was like the soft hum of a tuning fork
Who always put a smile
On my face.
He’d tell me about things that were
In tune to both of us.

The boys I loved
Are the boys who I lost
And the boys who lost me.
I have nothing left but
Soft memories and faded recollections
Of the boys I once used to know.
Who they are is left behind in analogy and metaphor.
Like the ending to a favorite novel
These romances have all come to their end.
And yet I find myself
Rereading them.
