vomiting rhymes mixed with metaphor

Emotional Beeswax

when emotions fly and sting
and become moving things,
the heart of strings sings
and cries and dies--
just a little
until the buzz of a drone
calls the queen home to do
as she must--create the honey
and the lust
for which she is made and makes--
and takes
a little more tears
as the years swirl into a cone
dripping until she's alone
and gone
covered in golden glaze
while stuck in the muck of a hazy,
crazy maze
of excrement

Great work here and very possibly a good definition of Dementia. I knew people that had that and Alzheimers also, and they both are terrible diseases.

Great job!


:)) hugs ... it is busy and very cool poem ...

Where on earth did this come from?? It's simply terrific!! Did you have a raging fever? Were you high on Johnny Depp? Whatever it was, do it some more! Wonderful and magical whimsy!

Fantastic vomiting here kathy, yes we all have our time and then some! But our true beauty is carried in our hearts and can never fade imo. Life is a bitch and dementia could be a great relief, lets hope not. Lovely to read you here again, where have you been?

Smiling with you


Enjoyed the poem, and the metaphors. I found it so sad overall though...
P.S. The Queen bee plays no part in honey production, she just lays the eggs...
Great poem.
