I wanted wings 
To wrap me gently 
In such a wondrously beautiful embrace
Amongst the stars and angels
So I delicately ripped flight
From the butterflies surrounding my window
In the hopes they could fly me away.
I wanted to feel loved 
To feel the doting heat 
Of a lovers breath on my neck
And grasp on my heart
So I kissed the sun
And held it ever so gently
Against my breast till
It burned me away
And I could reminisce in its loving burn.
I wanted to be whole
Without flaw 
Without ugly bones to trap my soul
Without a life
So desperately wanting
Everything it could never have or be
So I embraced the seas
Submerged my entirety 
My being 
Letting its infinity 
All that would be left of me,
Till I could only 
Wash among its waves
As apart of the water.
I wanted to feel alive 
So I cut a thin line
And I grasped my own life
So I could feel every moment 
Of it slipping away.
Borrrreeeeedddddddddddddd. Inspired by PrussianPersephone , some poem she wrote had a beautiful line about butterflies wings, and that inspired my first lines from which i wrote a completely haphazard poem. To be entirely truthful , I had literally no thoughts in mind when i originally wrote this. Just wrote . No idea what it means, I'm guessing about some girl who wants things she can't have. Hope everyone enjoys XD
