I don't know that I'll make a regular thing of this, but I've been reading some of them here and there and thought that this was a prompt I could do something with. Who knows? Maybe I was right. You decide.
Thinking I read the words you said And the ones you didn't say More to the point The ones you no longer say Reinventing a life That you never saw coming Asking me to dance When you don't dance (you even said so) Try to catch a butterfly And you find out how fragile they are Try to pick one up As it emerges from the chrysalis Before the wings are dry And doom it to a premature end But wear the right colors And stand very still The butterfly will come to you Land there or there (or even there) And nobody has to get hurt Least of all the butterfly.
