I’ve Only Seen the Bee Movie Once (A Poem)

Hello, I’ve returned.

Things have been rough, I’m not going to lie.  But … turns out I’m stronger than I thought I was.  Anyways, I don’t break promises, and I promised poetry on Mondays alongside Thursdays until next year, so here’s a poem with a nice, misleading title.

 

I’ve Only Seen the Bee Movie Once.

I’ve memorized
your laugh lines
& tear stains,
& all I can see
is art
in your pain
& tragedy
in your beauty.

If I am to be destroyed
If I am meant to die
I want it to be at the hand
of the storm within your soul
and the daggers in your kiss.

Like a child learns
to stay away from bee hived
simply from being stung,
I learned to stay away
from people like you.
But none of that matters
when all you want is
honey.
Something sweet to lick
from dripping lips.

If you can get oover
the sing
& taste of rust.

Dice me up.
Cubes of Flesh.
Bloodied.
Leave me here.
A mess.
Until recovery.
Isn’t an option.
Anymore.

I asked for it,
Right?
I poked the hornets’ nest
With a question of love.

 

I hope you enjoyed it.  It was actually a lot of fun to experiment within this poem.  I think it can be seen–all the different directions I thought about taking it.  I couldn’t pick, so I went with all of them at once.

(Also, I typed this on my phone in the car … exciting stuff!)

Don’t worry, I wasn’t the one driving. 😛

Anyways, thanks for reading.  It means a lot to me to have people that like to read what I’ve written.

Have a lovely evening!

  1. Great thought process and I loved the poem. Reread the last six stanzas…I think the car ride may have been bumpy as noted in spelling. 🙂
