Guilt Butterflies

Guilt Butterflies

A Poem by Cat
"

This is one of my favorite poems that I have written. I hope y'all are able to read between the lines and enjoy my work.

"

Hope

 

is the word that I will

 

never trust

 

 

 

Hope

 

is the word that is

 

carved into my wrist

 

 

 

Hope

 

is the feeling I get

 

on days like this

 

 

 

Days that everything goes ok

 

even though

 

I always know

 

that I will just be disappointed

 

 

 

Let the BUTTERFLIES OF GUILT out of my chest

 

and into the air

 

 

 

To be free

 

start anew

 

 

 

Hope

 

is what those BUTTERFLIES survive on

 

 

 

Hope

 

is what makes them

 

sore

 

 

 

Hope

 

Will be the thing

 

that crushes their

 

wings when

 

their hopes fly just a little to high

 

 

 

Hope

 

is the death

 

of my BUTTERFLIES OF GUILT

 

 

 

As soon as I am relieved of my guilt

 

No matter what it's from

 

 

The hope that things can be good

 

once again only

 

leads to disappointment

 

 

 

And the demise of my
