"We were given two hands to hold, two eyes to see, two legs to walk, but why only one heart? Because the other was given to another person for us to find." ~Anonymous

The day was new, the sun was bright,
A summer day, a summer’s blight.
The people stood there, by the pool,
As I prepared myself for the duel.

The one human below, with short curly hair,
So engrossed in the pool, too cool to care.
Pointing my stinger, I aimed for the arm,
I broke soft flesh but it wasn’t much harm.

But this person was terrified of one little sting,
She screamed and she cried, and all that sort of thing.
When I was spent, and flew far away,
I didn’t see it, I’m sorry to say.

It was a flip-flop, one you may know,
With a force that caused me to fall down and slow.
The ground was no problem, but the flip-flip came down.
It was there that it happened, just there on the ground.

It was there on the sidewalk the summer had fried,
That I did something quite unusual,
Quite unusual indeed,
I died.

The girl in the poem is me. I'm terrified of wasps.
