Weakened Butterfly

by Jessica   Sep 22, 2006

Slowly spreading embroidered wings
Gently fluttering from flower to flower
With each quiver, a slight breeze it brings
Sparkles fall from each wing creating a shower..

Delicately watching which way she goes
Carefully hiding the damage that was done
Wings still sparkle, but she no longer glows
Her beauty, confidence, and life he left undone..

A beautiful butterfly slowly floats to the ground
Wings lightly slowing down, taking a lengthy doze
The gentle wind and birds cries the only sound
A weakened butterfly slowly dies beneath a rose..

    Omg. This poem is so beautiful... it just flows like water. It was just so... perfect. The whole metaphor, the poem, the words, the syllabication.
    It was just perfect. I love the meaning behind it, i just love it all. You deserve a 5.
