Forgotten Poems: 117 / 500

Butterflies Are Fragile

Rating: 4.4

All I need right now is to be left alone,
Forgotten by the rest of the world,
Forgiven by my soul,
which I have disappointed once again.
Can I now shrink in a corner
like I did when I was a child?
Can I now run in my mother’s arms
so she can give me comfort with her love?
Can I now have my wings back?
Because I feel like an angel dismissed from heaven.
And if I can’t be compared with one
can I be considered as a butterfly?
Because when butterflies
get too close to the bright light
they burn...

this poem is ok but needs some work, you should break up the poem better, and revise it a bit, you'll get more meaning in your questions

Seven years after, can you write again and become a friend? From Athens, early winter morning in February.

Wonderful way of describing how it hurts to fall from grace with anyone. I think we are too hard on ourselves when we feel 'burnt'. Lovely poem.
