Lepidoptera

by V

In life,
I think of most of my relationships as butterflies.

 

There are different stages,
the more we learn about the other,
the greater we flourish together.

I have found that you are an exception.

I’ve told you this before 
but I shall write it down today, 
you have effected a change in my ways of thinking. 

 

Watching you is like watching a flame grow to its fullest potential. 

 

You are an unfettered force of nature
and oh, how I admire you so. 

 

For you, I feel as though I am a moth, 
clumsy in my attraction, 
yet indomitable in my affections.
