Flower and the Bee (Part 2)

Processed with VSCO with a7 preset

sharing the second part of my duet with the bestie, Shubhodeep Roy. 🙂 i am the flower and he is the bee. the part 1 is here.

my bee, that kiss was sweeter than honey,
brimming with love, i’d choose it ceaselessly.
but after you let go, I saw the look in your eyes,
gazing at another pretty blue bathing in sunrise.

the wind remains warm, but I am freezing inside,
as you fly towards your next flower bride.
i have no choice but to let you go freely,
because I, however beautiful, will never be your only.

angry on me is my favorite flower,
she doesn’t know, how hungry i’m at this hour.
for survival, i might fly to another blue,
but for love, i will always come back to only you.

the queen bee was angry, for i brought only a little honey,
allow me to go to the flower brides, oh they are so many.
your nectar, though only a little, gives me life,
however you misunderstand me, you’ll be my only wife.

No Wedding

I woke up without her beside me. We argued last night. Maybe she finally gave up on me. But as I looked for her, I saw the pile of hay arranged in her signature way. She made a breakfast for me. She did not leave me. She was kidnapped.

My mind was racing, so as my noisy hooves as I look for her around the ranch. Then I remembered the wedding.

I rushed towards the pavilion and saw several cars parked and the elegantly-embellished venue. My purely white wife will take the bride to this chapel. I heard she is part of the human’s elaborate wedding hullabaloo that we gladly never had.

We need not an extravagant event just to seal our love, my wife and I surely know that.
