Barbed-Wire Butterflies

Barbed-Wire Butterflies

A Poem by CompellingComposer

Pain and suffering eased by a loving heart...

Barbed-wire butterflies flutter in my chest
Slicing my heart with strokes of steel
And they seem to never rest
Causing wounds you always heal

You're not afraid to touch my heart of stone
My pain has melted to the floor
Loving me, giving me feelings I've never known
With gentle smiles I adore

My heartbeat so fast, it never slows
Thoughts of you have taken over my menacing brain
And my heart ( because of you ) always grows
So I'll choke out " I love you " through all this pain
