A golden butterfly
lurks in dark passageways
where walls never age.
Gloomy ivory green leaves
gleam in dark
as the never old,
and always immortal butterfly
kisses the feet of rose petals;
that are shackled to the past of the known and the Unknowns.
on her feet, as the first snow of the year
melts the memory
of him; holding her hand on the roughest day of 2016.
A pink laughter lies to her eyes.
Pain engulfs the joy that was never hers.
Irony lies in her lies,
time slices the old wounds open.
Pain and love
compromises on the edge of void of tarnished dreams.
The butterfly dies at an untimely hour and she thus rises from the ashes of past.
