My Butterfly

My butterfly
seemingly delicate
with wings of steel
cold sharp steel

My butterfly
draws the helpless
with her unsurpassed beauty
there is no resisting

My butterfly
who has no feelings
but is emotional
making me want
to hurt when
she hurts

My butterfly
drawing me to
the edge of

My butterfly
I will defend
to the end
but will the end
be caused by
My butterfly

    This is quite fascinating, Tim. I love the butterfly and it's always nice to have see a different perspective. Keep writing and sharing.

    This fascinating poem is a different look at the common butterfly, Tim, and a very well written free style poem at that. It is very expressive from beginning to end, and the ending is quite thought provoking as well. Carl. (Report) Reply
