Painting Butterflies

Painting Butterflies

A Poem by DwellerComplex

Mental frustration

Every day is so the same
Not sure how to play this game
Of life like others
Painting butterflies and pretending
Don't want to stick out
Yet I want to be special
My mind is trapped in a raging storm
Searching hold in a sea of grass
Then I dance alone
All alone in my darkened room
A solitary journey afraid to drown
Not even trying to swim

When opening my eyes
Mental frustration kicks in
If I could just
Become the star I have in my dreams
No fear or selfdoubt
So I can leave these days behind
Meantime happy I survived
Through another
While painting butterflies
To others
