Lament of a Dying Butterfly

by Sweet Fragility   Sep 15, 2007


Lament of a dying butterfly -- even the best shall fall;
By breaking the only rule of the game of seduction,
It shattered the illusion that I did not care at all --
And slowly started to bring forth my own destruction.

Lament of a dying butterfly -- even the best shall fall;
Hearts tormented by past betrayals and destroyed trust --
A test to see if you cared enough to break down my walls,
Not just another plan for own satisfaction of lust.

Lament of a dying butterfly -- even the best shall fall;
Staring at you with teary cheeks and pain-filled eyes,
Stricken down from the sky, a lost soul's desperate call --
For redemption and a way out of a flawless disguise.

Lament of a dying butterfly -- even the best shall fall;
Two creatures searching for comfort, tried to fly high --
Fell together towards the earth, in a world so small,
Held each other close, not yet ready to say goodbye.

    My favorite stanza is;

    -Lament of a dying butterfly -- even the best shall fall;
    By breaking the only rule of the game of seduction,
    It shattered the illusion that I did not care at all --
    And slowly started to bring forth my own destruction.-

    I can relate to this piece in so many ways.
    The repetition of the first line in every stanza is very effective.
    Keep writing!
