I “Like” you

The poets from West Park Academy used one of the most common literary devices, similes, to profess their love. Enjoy!

Yahaira T. R.

Tu sonrisa se parece a la de un conejo

Tus ojos alumbran como los diamantes

Tus ojos son un arbol porque son verdes

Tu piel es como un tigre

Eres como un jardin de meteoros


Bobby H.

Your eyes are as bright as a starry night

Your hair is as black as a witch’s cat

Your smile shines like the sun

You are as sweet as cotton candy

You’re always happy as if you were a child on Christmas Eve

You are a chameleon because you are unique

Your personality is as pure as gold


Khamari D.

You are as nice as a blooming flower

You are as bright as a colorful rainbow

You are a heart because you are full of love

Your eyes are as brown as a pool of honey

You are a noisy car because you are loud

Guillermo P.

Tus ojos son como la oscuridad

Tu pelo es como un oso

Tu ladrido es como un gran sonido de lobo

Tus patas son como de un leon


Carlos B.P.

You are hot like the sun

You are as long as a giraffe

You are as creamy as lechera

You are like ice cream so cold but so good


Jocelyn B. 

Ralphie you are as cute as a newborn baby

You are as soft as cotton candy made freshly with warmth

Your colors are like an Oreo

You are faster than the dog next door
