Srinath, this poem is both wistful and humorous, if that is possible.

Sad for the unrequited affection and amusing for the comparison to the bee and the "daffodil of you" and "you refuse to give me honey" and "you will open your petals to me one day." The imagery is, well, innocent and provocative.

Very clever piece of work, Srinath!

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
