Sweet Nectar


(image credit: Primo Masotti maso101@libero.it)

Confusion buzzes in my head
like a swarm of angry bees
that have lost their queen

I crave the sweet nectar
of love words
dripping smoothly from your lips
like honey off a comb

But I get
peanut butter and jelly promises
an unwelcome substitute
that sticks with dryness
rather than desire

    Sometimes fewer words can capture the feeling every bit as powerfully as a poem of many verses. This really resonated with me Mary!

      Hemingway said that “less is more” and I agree with Karen’s comment. Your poem is every bit as powerful. The images of nectar and peanut butter so eloquently and vividly express your emotions in this poem. Very nice!!
