Butterfly in your thumb

notes of the scandal
the news for the dumb
you can see it, you can hear it
but nothing to be caught

silence and truth
from the broken shadow
you can feel it
it's not easy to confess

you were hiding for so long
the secret I need to know

you give me roller coaster heart
now you play it again
and you know I don't mind
I need you more than I want

on cold bridge river flows
you write me story
the butterflies cling in the thumbs
like our promise game

say good bye
there's nothing to be scared
water will surround us
till our dream's gone with the rain

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
