Sweet as honey

bees on pink milkweed

Lies, sweet as honey,
Drip from her sanguine lips.
Lies that loop through your brain
Like a bad love song,
To finally lodge, heavy as a stone,
Underneath your heart,
Cold and immovable.

  6. I loved this, and especially the bee, preparing to produce more honey! I too, find inspiration or illustration for my writing, in photography. I don’t know what comes first for you, the chicken or the egg, but it works!

    1. Whenever I have a writing prompt, I always go to my photo library for an accompanying image. Many times, if I don’t know how I want to use the prompt, the photo sparks an idea.

      It definitely is a ‘chicken/egg’ kind of thing.
