A Broken Winged Butterfly Flies?

The darned life crawls through the smooth & silky roads
But rival thorns; And he feels the fragrance of a distant Gypsy flower
But his patchy lungs won't keep enough breath for the tiresome journey.

*To my first kind critic of the site
poetess Amanda. Lukas

    The darned life crawls through the smooth & silky roads//////
    Smooth sailing does not make any sailor...........smooth sail is just a one day wonder and comes with a transitory expiry date or day.....
    Critics are always for good though strong language may appear harsh-but they are beneficial.They metamorphose you and your thinkability to counteract.

    especially the third line strikes a chord -

    Sometimes men too are like that in some conditions...............Handicapped by circumstances they are unable to achieve life's goals and pleasure.....Good Write...10+++

    You are an imagist worthy of the name. May all of your critics
    be kind ones.

    As always,

    Sandra
