    I wrote this poem really late at night and it hasn't been edited yet- so just keep all that in mind X] I hope you enjoy it - em




    The garden was a peaceful place
    No trouble of to speak-
    Until the little butterfly
    Had a purpose she need seek.

    Matters of the heart you’ll see,
    Were never far from her mind.
    And on one normal afternoon
    She left the green behind.

    “I’m leaving” said the butterfly
    “I’m going far away”-
    “To a place where no one can find me,”
    “A place where I can stay.”

    And so she flew above the trees
    And though the wind did blow-
    She never tore her wits away
    That place which she must go.

    The days would pass and nights keep long
    But the butterfly still knew-
    That precious hearts and all their parts-
    Needed protecting too.

    She took off to the mountains,
    But the cold would never do.
    She met sunshine by the ocean-
    But did not like the view.

    “Where can I go?” She asked the sky-
    “To save my broken soul”-
    “On little ones like me” She spoke
    “The world does take its toll.”

    But no clouds could spare a whisper-
    No bird would give her a thought.
    While everything kept turning,
    The butterfly was left distraught.




    Her wings were growing weaker-
    Fatigue was taking its dues-
    The butterfly kept going
    Fearful her soul she could lose.

    But a day turned to a week,
    A week to longer still
    And though intentions good
    The butterfly fell ill.

    She could not go on any further
    And her breathe began to wane-
    Her heart became quiet-
    Her soul lost all the same.
