So beautiful
White and Shimmery, They
flutter in meandering patterns
Draw you towards
paper-white butterflies
all all all all around me they fly fly fly fly
A sea of white spots

Tilt your head up
-BREATHE, breathe, Focus
Catch one
****** it by its wings
pluck them out
Crush its shaking body
as panicked convulsions turn into stillness

Paper-white butterflies
Don't let a single one slip by
a sea of thoughts of all kind, chaotic feelings. so intense, thrilling, agony and joy
overwhelming, suffocating.
no matter how poetic that might be, they need to be controlled, smashed between your fingers. all that violence just to stay sane
