Touching ButterfliesThese awful acid hands reach out for what they know they cannot grasp.Touching Butterflies by ~TouchingButterflies
They still stretch out desperately hoping.
With fingers stretched out wide the owner starts to cry.

but every time I spread my wings
there's something out there chasing me...
darkness bringing poor tidings.
I don't want to tear you limb-by-limb,

And tries to climb to the light
For space to dry his wings.
All his worst fears had emerged
from the dark recesses of his tiny little mind
and come to light more successfully than he was managing to;
the leaf had stopped growing beneath him,
and he had fallen off

Because I CanMy great-grandfather used to tell me, "Don't chase after butterflies because you'll only end up with a butterfly in your wings." I never quite understood his advice until one All Hallow's Eve, I was gardening with my best friend Butterfly. All of a sudden, we found an underground tunnel!
