Lurking To The Shadows Summary: An Uknown Mystery
What is was, a moth
Small and timid, a tiny vulnerable life
And it had wings, and so it flew
Through shadow, darkness, and ashy rain
Day by day, it slowly grew
For years and years it dwelled there
Until its wings were coated in blue
Because when the rain came again
And washed the moth anew
And because it was a moth, the rain didn’t faze its wings
It rose above the clouds of cinder
What it was, a butterfly
Fragile and dainty, a symbol of beauty and grace
A star in the shining black belt of sky
Because it was a butterfly, the murky water snuffed its flight
Put an end to its soaring reign
Crushed its wings once and for all
Threw the remains down the drain
And it fell into the fire
Its wings were in ashes
But its body had not yet been burned
It didn’t have wings, and so it sank
They crumpled it between the wire
And there it leaves this place forever
Through squinted eyes I see
Up in smoke above through the stone spire
What is was, my beautiful butterfly
