Butterfly

To the seductive sounds of society
And the roar of laughter
My chrysalis creeks and cracks
My wings unfold
Shimmering, colourful, bold

They take flight
Thirsty for young night
And many a delight
Many a delight

But instead finds filthy philandering
Too many ephemeral embraces
So easily erased
I lose myself
In a hundred hungry hands
And sink into an abyss of ’’adoration’’
Lusty adoration
Needy adoration
Criminal adoration
Selfish adoration
That seeks to penetrate and puncture my soul

I fly
I Fall
I land
But can no longer stand
With spinning head
And rotating room
I lose my sense of gravity
Within
Without
I am lost
In a night that chills me

What am I but a pretty parody
In a nasty caricature of society

My wings!
My wings!
I’ll happily give
For a cold, comforting cocoon
And its sterile silence
To wash away these soul tears
That spill but never clean
The dirt inside of me

Artist's Description

Inspired by a bad experience I had two weeks ago.
Long story short – went to an old ’’friend’s’’ house, someone I trusted. Ended up being drugged.
But even in my drugged state I am a stubborn bastard – and managed to kick off a few perverts and locked myself in the bathroom and phoned a friend to help me.

Am now okay, except I am no longer the social butterfly I once was. Shall stick to flittering about in the cocoon of comfortable safe havens (houses of family and my best friend).
