A Dose of Kyle

Writing by Kyle Freelander


There were a lot of butterflies that day,

the one when you left,

pouring out from inside of me

where they had been cleverly hiding,

where no one could watch them grow

but I could feel their budding strength.

Our interactions their sustenance:

words for food,

kisses for cocoons,

as they morphed from caterpillars

into colorful butterflies

quivering inside of me.

But one day the clouds came

and never left us alone,

they knew better than we did

that it was time to fly

away. The necessities for life

I could no longer supply:

the shelter became too dark,

too cold and too jaded

for something so bright.

The butterflies flew away

that day, realizing the sun

wasn’t coming back.

Not for them and not for me.
