Butterflies Waves Flowers Metal

Butterflies Waves Flowers Metal

A Poem by Laura Ex

I am fragile painted veins on butterflies’ wings

I am crashing waves on the front of the beach

I am all those noises when you’ve broken everything

I am the goals and expectations you just couldn’t reach


I am leafy flowers just ready to wilt

I am milk gone sour when it’s just too late

I am all the reasons you have wanted to be killed

I am the putrid, filthy feeling filling you with hate


I am wordless screams

On colorless butterfly wings

I am gloomy days

On tidal waves

I am burns from hot metal

On forget-me-not petals

I am all that’s forgotten

On flesh that is rotten


I am no longer flying

On my loud dainty wings

I am no longer floating

On foamy blue waves

I am no longer sweltering

On fields of buds

I am no longer gone without a trace

But chances are, you won’t remember my face.
