Butterfly Net

Butterfly Net

 

She reads him avidly

hungrily

looking for patterns

for answers

for hints

for clues

for oxygen to fuel

the breathless possibility

that she might be ‘she’

.

Meanwhile

he chases her soul

with a butterfly net

spun from the best

of his words

to capture her

completely.

    A beautiful thing to read as I am waking from a nap. You will capture her soon, I just know. Smiles

    Who is the “she”
    and who is the “you”
    we all will never know
    and therein lies the clue

    (however I do believe Lizzie Siddal was a redhead…*mischievous blink of eyes*

      Ah. I never reveal anything. But if it is something that can be deduced by the casual or even interested observer, then it is certainly wrong. Smiles.
