Light Bulbs

Bugs are attracted to light bulbs
& the luminous gleam that slowly draws them in-

& I’m attracted to your voice at night
as it softly lullabies me to sleep.

The sunflowers in my neighbors’ yard
constantly turn towards the sun,

& in times of need, I too, turn
toward you-

But as the bug is being zapped
by its attraction & the flowers drift away-

My heart is becoming so mesmerized in your
love that I don’t feel the electricity causing my mind to decay.
