The Butterfly Effect

Butterflies shot out my spine today.

They flapped their blood soaked wings
and flew away.

I buckled low onto the floor,
Spoke your name as my sight grew sore.

The winged beasts left such a hole.

(Much like you did upon my soul).

Though you’ve poured salt into my heart,
I forgave you from the start.

The butterflies they knew that too——

That’s why they burst out of me
and flew towards you.
