Scent of Honeysuckle

Scent of Honeysuckle
Form: Free Verse

You are here
and I am not running away
I answer you with my tears
each one trailing down my cheek
as if afraid of the emotions
unsure of the shadows you cast on my skin
as uncertainty and doubt mingle with desire
unsaid words moisten
as your lips linger on the tear trails
a moment too long
but not long enough
and I inhale the scent of your skin
sweet like honeysuckle
enticing a bee to taste nectar
just enough temptation
to linger through until the next time
you are here again
