Delicate Souls

A Poem by Yellow Butterfly

When I communicate with you

I end up dying a little more

Although you don’t speak

I hear you clearly

What you do not see

behind my smiles I am weak

My body is ravished

I am delicately bruised

They appear instantly

from your absent touches

Leaving a pain that

no drug can erase

Feeling of loneliness

false sense of happiness

My heart needs to break

so that I can escape

This deep rooted desire

that causes me anguish!

I write so I can tell you

It’s okay……..I’m okay

As long as we are okay!

Being separated from the one person who means everything to you can be exhausting emotionally. You conveyed that yearning here in your lines well. Some really nice poetic expression in the mix as well YB. Thank you for sharing.

Hello, Butterfly! :)
"I am delicately bruised

They appear instantly

from your absent touches"

I like the thought of that. Thanks for sharing.

Missing and longing for the person you love the most can be a pain that is almost inexpressible but you have penned this emotion and heartache quite well.
