"Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift; that's why they call it the present"

Comes without a warning and
Pushes you hard, down the ground,
Increases your blood pressure
And colors your face hurriedly like
A nursery kid in a painting contest.
Paralyzes your strong athletic feet
And tickles you inside till
You wobble like a klutzy jelly.
Looks so hypnotically hot
That your head will be in the Sahara
When you’re only still in Serbia.
May crush your fragile little
Fist sized heart, ruthlessly
By not returning your unsolicited favor.
Will speak honeyed words like an
Angel from paradise, but when you would
Be too frozen and,
Busy looking at its beautiful lips,
It will lose interest and move away.

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

Oh my god, all those comparisons are breathtakingly true!  My especially fav one is "And tickles you inside till You wobble like a klutzy jelly" And Sahara and Siberia! Awesome. I like this poem a lot! I was smiling all the way through...:D

I like it! You made the word crush so powerful like the emotions are in real life.

  I like this. :) I think it’s something that lots of people would be able to relate to.

I didn't get it until it was explained in the comments XD. Well, I think it's a nice concept although the "athletic feet" seems out of place and it seems like you are making all sorts of references about something which the reader is not aware about. If you could make your subject more clear, this would be a very relatable poem. The last few lines are golden by the way!

Just cause a girl doesn't have a man doesn't mean she is weak. It just means that she is strong enough to not need a man...
