Make me a butterfly!

Looking through the window
At the glittering city skyline
The temple bells chiming
Somewhere far away
Register in my tempestuous mind

The bustle of my house
Fails to pull me out
Of my myriad thoughts
Comprising you and me

Realizing the futility of
All I feel for you
How fanciful my thoughts are
How consumed I am by you

I switched on the lights
Wishing the harsh glare
Would work to dispel
The gossamer dreams
That in the darkness dwell

A flighty little butterfly
Danced by my side
She then perched on my arm
As if content in life

How furtively I wished
To have been that fly
To perch by your side
At peace with my life.

    I kinda wrote it when I was all pensive and sombre but I’m glad you interpreted it differently.
    Am trying my hardest to be regular. πŸ™‚
