honeybee [poem]

I want to be your nectar-rich flower
under the summer sun
bright and colorful and full of life
honeybee
I want to sweeten your life
and feed your very being with my presence
I want to be sticky
a little tricky
I want you to struggle to remove
the traces of me from your skin
honey
I want to be yours
through the buzz and sting
of reality’s persistent downfalls
I want to be the honeycomb you protect
and the hive that welcomes you home
I want to be your home
sweet flower of mine
I want to be the field of wildflowers
and the soil that nourishes them
and the sun
I want to be the sun for you
when your seeking warmth and light and love
I want to be the warmth and the light
and the love
I want to be your love
feed your heart
before you fly away in search of
greener pastures and fuller flowers
