    Honey

    Your lips were sweet like sugar
    your skin was as smooth as cream
    and your eyes were like
    the ice in my water on a hot day
    You held my hand to your heart
    with promises on your lips
    and whispered lullabies in my ear
    until I fell asleep
    Your kiss was a cup of tea
    of warm milk and honey
    that soothed the worst of
    a sore throat
    when I cried
    And then you left me high and dry,
    hugging my pillow,
    living a lie.
