Being with you

by Jallene Pineda

Being with you is always so soothing,

Every time I go to you, I see you and

Notice something new. Although, you sometimes

Smell like someone that hasn’t

Showered in days, I still enjoy your company.

The way you talk to me is as

Gentle as the water hitting the

Shore on a sunny day and I just go with the motion

Of the ocean. However, I get jealous

That so many people want to be with you.

But I don’t blame them. You’re filled

With different attitudes and personalities.

Some days you’re extremely quiet, like

A bunny…and other days you’re as

Loud as a hungry lion asking for more

Food. I just thought I should let you know how I

Feel about you. See ya’ on a warm summer day!
