My nightmare of butterflies

by XnotaprettygirlX   Aug 7, 2005


Their wings spread out
just flying around
they are so colorful
Not making a sound

they look so innocent
No enemies
The kids love them
Fill them with sweet memories

but i don't see them as friendly
i can see past their disguise
they are my worst nightmare
i see evil in their eyes

they are silent murderers
they kill me in the night
with just one thought
i dread going to sleep tonight

for in my dreams i see them
they have eyes of red & wings of black
They come from no where
and attack from the back

they drive me insane
although they are small
they are deadly
could make you take your final fall

so now a bunch of em come
closer and closer to me
i scream so loud
but they silenced my voice, this cant be

torturing me with killer butterfly kisses
slowly taking over my helpless body
i kick & and try hit them away
they eat me from the inside out, leaving me all bloody

they force themselves out of my soul
Go back to colorful wings & innocent eyes
i lay on the ground dead, but nobody knows how
Because no body EVER suspects the butterflies

**OK yes i have an extreme problem with butterflies they are soo freaky i hate them**

    Hey, i love the way you just destry the cliqued feeling around butterflys. that makes this a great poem teh way youve taken something soo over used and warped to be something origonal. i like some of the images you use aswell, but this poem does seem a little bit restircted by form and rhyme. im not suggesting you chasnge it at all i love it as it is, but i really think your writing style will benefit from a freer form. youve used some fantastic images
