Coloring in the monochrome world


 

Your kiss is so sugary sweet, just like a honeycomb,

Bees buzzing all around you, cause you wore yellow and black.

A dandelion in your ear, a sunflower safe in your grasp,

The epitome of summer, coloring in the monochrome world.

 

The wind scatters your beach sand hair, covering up your face,

Right as I was taking a photo for you, to post on your instagram.

You’ll probably hate it, cause they can’t see your emerald eyes

And your beautiful face, but I swear it’ll go viral in the cyberspace.

 

In my eyes, you’re a supermodel, and I’m the paparazzi,

Always right behind you, with my phone out, to get a shot of you.

A flowerbed blooms, all across your summer dress, that’s been

Hiding in the closet all winter, I know you’ve been dying to wear it.

 

A wide brimmed hat, hides your face from the burning summer sun,

There’s a couple clouds, loitering around in the atmosphere.

You fill the void inside of this hollow heart, my dear,

I’ve never loved anyone like the way, that I love you.

 

Not even da Vinci or van Gogh, could create something so perfect,

From your hair, to your eyes, to your smile, to your tattoo sleeve.

I’m a sunflower, needing to bask in your light, akin to photosynthesis,

I know, now that I want to die with you, I never want to leave.

 

Your kiss is so sugary sweet, just like a honeycomb,

Bees buzzing all around you, cause you wore yellow and black.

A dandelion in your ear, a sunflower safe in your grasp,

The epitome of summer, coloring in the monochrome world.

Beautiful. Makes me think of how my husband and I first met. On a beach in the summer, he would take pictures of me as we ran through the waves and soaked up the sand. Still remember how flirty and sweet it was; one of the many reasons I decided to marry him.
Love this poem!

Oh, summer lovin'! Nothing quite like it, is there, at least when you're young. Nice to see something lighter from you, MW.

There's really no feeling like summer love, or just a new love in general. I'm trying to make sure I put in more lighter works to balance out the heavier works. Thanks for reading!

This was such lighthearted poem. I liked how did the comparisons of the girl being like a summertime sun flower girl. I really just admire and am amazed of the similes you come up with.
When you go into the imagery of the comparisons to convey how she is like a sun flower. It was a very sweet poem, something so cute like when you cue an ahhh moment, it's very well done. This is how some people feel when they're in love, the beauty of the scenary and the person in it to compare it to. Since there's no flaws in that person's eyes.

I had fun writing this one, not going to lie. I have several people in mind when coming up with this, plus it was a lovely summer day which inspired me to do it. Pretty sure I was reading about bees and then the first line came into my mind. Thanks so much for reading :)
