If i were a butterfly
and you, the boy with the net
would you catch me?
would you keep me as a pet?
in a jar made of glass?
Could you bear to let me fly
without weeping for the loss?
Could you restrain your urge
To feel my wings beat against your fingers?
Or would you reach out
knowing the cost
and brush the powder from my wings
so that i could no longer fly away?
Would you keep me y...

Sitting at the foot of the stairs
Captive of your thoughts
Prisoner of your emotions
I watch you from above
Your neck inclined
Untroubled by your hair
Free to share its beauty
To all alert enough to see
A kiss, a flutter of a slight wing
A modest light touch
Brings pure solace to your face
Your gaze searches and...

The last butterfly
flutters its wings,
drives the waves
on the other side
of a distant ocean,
then, deletes itself
from the existence
it fleetingly owns.
We watch until
the sun disappears
over the horizon,
and the butterfly dies.

Poem of transformation...
The butterfly in the morning sun flutters with grace until his day is done
He's in and out of the beautiful flowers
To the music of the birds he dances for hours
Blissfully aware of his own handsome features
He's the envy of all the other garden creatures
Making the most of his time in the air
Embracing his life as if not a care
Made up of colour and symmetrical p...

She wanted to fly high
But was afraid to fell from the blue sky
She longed for someone
To come along her way
To guide her throughout
No matter what the world says
She would believe in miracles
She was never afraid to dream
If only that someone showed up
She would have been living free
Chained in the shackles
She longed to breathe
Eventually that someone sho...

A lost soul
not so bright
never done wrong
but not always right
Lost in the woods
in her dazzling mood
going against the world
she thought she could
I heard she was sad
maybe she lost her dad
in early age
she got trapped in a cage
Society used to tell her
what she had to be
but she never believed
and went after her dreams

I'm going to tell you a story, which was genuinely one of the most terrifying moments of my life. I'd always been quite cynical about the idea of ghosts and demons and spiritualism, but this moment changed that for me and made me realise that actually, we are NOT alone in this world. Please, I know and understand the cynicism of most on this topic, but I can assure you that I have not invented any...

Butterfly, flying free
Unaware of its destiny
Butterfly you are truly free
For yours is a path with certainty
You exist within the day
Falling victim to the night
But when the darkest hour comes
There is nothing, there is no fight
So as you flutter by my way
Without a single care
I envy you and your mortality
One such I cannot share

Once upon a time on a warm sunny day
The snake has been chasing the butterfly,
Trying to catch her on its flying way.
The color of sunshine on the wings of flight,
The beauty met with the horror and fright.
The fear of being swallowed
Gave the butterfly strength.
It seemed she could overcome any length.
She flew further and further away,
Saving her life on a warm sunny d...

Then you are quiet
You make peace
And you live again
You inhale so many lifetimes,
Your home is the universe,
Your time is eternity.
Words you speak are never silent,
Deeds of yours are never unseen,
Steps you take never fade,
Emotions you share always felt.
We often ask the questi...

State Wards are funny creatures
flittering winglessly from place to place
showing their colours to very few
and then only in hope of finding love
all the while needing compassion
like butterflies need leaves to land on
More happened in care that out
more pain and heartache suffered
than those who handled us could know

My dear butterfly who flew into my life, you take away my darkness and make me happy. Not sure how long it's been since I was happy and danced close with a real lady and really smiled a real smile. . By your actions of coming into my life, you banished three years of darkness away, gone for good. We went to the art gallery and looked at the pics, you explained what pictures you like...
