Literature by a Starving Artist - first chapter
Sketchy Character | Published 338 days ago
  



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 didnt 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

 

And it had wings, and so it flew

Through shadow, darkness, and ashy rain

 

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 didnt 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
