BitterSweet

you taste bittersweet

skin, like honey; but words like hyssop

i would taste all of you

could i bear the acerbic aftermath

of taking you completely into me.

Your bittersweetness is a wise web

for were the bitter to come up first

-as the name suggests-

most would never come your way.

But alas, cruel nature, to make

one taste so delicious only to

have her spoil even before being swallowed.

Even still, I return to your candy hive

again and again and again

Stings, be damned.
