Creature Poetry: Clingy, The Butterfly’s Demise

This Butterfly’s Tale Will Leave You Speechless

Butterfly

 

I know this all too well

A life stage of sorts,

Prior to my demise.

The butterfly that held on.

I begin to feel too heavy

For the petals I rest on.

 

So I attempt to prove

To myself and to no one,

As no one might care,

That I have some sort of place,

That society would have me

Somewhere beyond these petals.

I remind myself that the hurt

Is more on her petals,

Than my broken wings.

That I could survive a few moments

Surrounded by the unfamiliar

And that I’d return

Unscathed and her petals would wait

So I take off

HAVE YOU READ?: LOVE IN FALLACY

Mid-flight I realize,

I would loathe it all.

Letting myself be surrounded

By all the things I left for her petals.

But I do not go back

For I have a fear so certain

I’d return to her and find

Some lighter, better-fitting,

Prettier version of me

Rest where I once called home

-Twinless Gemini.
