Butterfly

Dodging sparkling drops of 
citrus,
wings sun-kissed by too much 
lipstick,
blushing crimson, glitter 
dusted,
wafting on the breeze.
Resting on the morning's glory,
between the pages of a very 
short story,
drunk on life that soon will end,
not knowing anything else.
Dancing on sunset-stained 
velvet,
fading memories, without 
regret,
soaring on the heights of 
freedom,
alone...born to die.
Angry drops of violet rain,
icy cold, kill the pain.
Lack of sudden lucidity,
it's not meant to be this way.
Drowning in ebony sorrow,
now, knowing there will be no 
tomorrow.
Twitching, hopeless, when will 
it end?
Breathing...fading...never to fly 
again.
