Sadness among song lyrics
as a song trapped in half
like a fluttering moth,
mumbles lyrics in my head-
just random snatches of song
“now that i found you,
your the one who can
pull me through
( a song by Sarah Brightman called Deliver Me.”
then I cannot recall the rest of the song
except for “deliver me, out of the? sadness? madness?”
The butterfly lies trapped and broken
in my head. It stops singing to me,
because it does not know the rest of the words.
so the butterfly twists turns and hums
stumbling backwards onto the chorus,
all over again, hmmm hmmm hmmm
“Deliver me.” hmm hmm
the butterfly snaps shut its wings and mouth.
I sit here vaguely wondering,
what the hell
am I thinking about?
