Purple Butterfly

Purple Butterfly

A Poem by Pikachu

A missing piece

The rushing wind slammed into my body as I ran through the door. Tripping over 
my feet and falling down into a puddle of dirty water. The cold neverending rain 
pouring down into my now fragile little hands. The thunderclouds roaring over my 
head and the lightning flashes across the dark sky. The hospital behind me

later they will spill out and hit the ground. 

I cant forgive my own weakness. I havent even seen him yet. I know I should go 
see him but the fear of breaking down prevents me. My soaking body like broken 
glass on the ground. Shattered pieces of our hearts split into 3 shards. The 
largest piece is the one so distant. 

In my vision of black and white blurred by my rain. I see a flash of color, a 
bright purple butterfly. The wings a vivid painting of 2 innocent eyes of an 
angel. Trying to fly away into the sky, battered and beaten by the wind and 
rain. Stuck out my gentle finger, and it landed right into the comfort of my

This reads more like a story than a poem but it is a great story that should go on to tell more. The details are wonderful and the ending of this piece is great.
