Butterfly

She was delicate
as a butterfly wing,
intense black hair 
rolling down her back,
dense dark eyes,
a shaping of the lips 
for the necessary vowels 
hinting at other possibilities,
a webbing of cerulean veins
barely hidden beneath 
porcelain-thin skin.
She was beauty,
an angel of the second order.
I wish I could recall her name.
