BUTTERFLY

Slowly creeping through this world579533_10151368308182076_1421987712_n

unaware, changeless

To my surroundings

Structurally dissimilar from you

Naïve

In my wandering

Not yet an adult

I feed on plants

You, a carnivore

A caterpillar

Cradled in your warmth

Nourished with your love,

I became a sessile, affixed to your

Sensual base

Kept

Partaking only of you

Your sex, my food

Supplying an appetite

You matured, perverted

Castoff

Detached me

Released me

Made me your fool

When you left me

I started spinning

A Pupa

Inactive, nonfeeding

Sobbing, remembering

The love, the laughs

The words, the pain

The heartache, the shame

your end game

Isolated

Cocooned from the world

I underwent internal changes

Fundamental reshaped

My thoughts, my person

Transforming myself

within the chrysalis

of my despair

Altered

A Butterfly emerged

spreading my gossamer-wings

I fly free, no longer bound

In my sorry and tears

Soaring high, I touched the sky

Completion

A new creature in a new world

Thoughts of you dispersed

In the changing of the winds

Created by my newfound wings

  1. I agree with Shane, beautifully gripping. I am as fond of butterflies as I am of Hedgehogs, so this was a treat 🙂
