    Here is an article on pruning honeysuckle. Since yours has become overgrown you will need to prune it severely, to about a foot from the ground. You don't say what kind it is but just a warning, if it's Japanese honeysuckle, it can be very invasive. If that's what you have you might consider removing it and planting something else.
