Steel Butterfly

A weak worm hatched
From an egg that is fragile
Trying to survive the world
Full of predators and guile

Romanticsm has been just an instrument
To be confined in the ego
And a faint serfage
On behalf of love upon herself

So she claims herself
No longer merely a companion
Metamorphosed as time goes by
A mild steel butterfly

    Yes Shirley, masochism is grand - tremendous freedom in your expression - making great use of the inherent elasticity in our language - exciting psychology here - J.A.B. %
