****Attention readers, I have a new youtube channel! Just search “Amelia Antone” on youtube and you should find it. Enjoy the poem, as always 🙂
They took pictures of you in the park;
It was dark in my life until you appeared:
I tried to capture your image-
But you disappeared.
I assumed you were shy, butterfly-
It couldn’t have been my shutter speed-
The exposure you received you did not like;
Though the exposure was always from me.
I tried to saturate you, shuttershy, will colors red and blue;
I tried to re-create you, butterfly-contrast you to something new-
I could not accept you, butterfly, for too shy you were for me.
But lying is dying, butterfly-and I wish that you missed me.
