Trapped In Amber

tree resin could not compare,

so soft and adhesive as glue,

drawn in like a starving fly, I

gorged on the love she grew

 

she's gone now, felled by time,

ironic mere insects survive her,

yet we are safe as any house,

secure but trapped in Amber

 

I'm stuck and its getting harder

I watch myself get fossilized,

years go by and I turn to rock,

humble yet curiously prized

 

more flies her nectar ensnared

I'm but one from the confection,

so many followed my pathway

they only defy my recollection

 

we fell for her and she used us

she clung on to what she'd got,

a martyr to those sticky fingers

and sweeter than any honeypot

 

she's gone now, felled by time,

ironic mere insects survive her,

yet we are safe as any house

secure but trapped in Amber
