My innocuous drug, a morphine butterfly,

The shiny yellow bulb in the deep abyssal sea.

Your words choke, your eyes blind

But your smile, your smile beheads me!

.

What brings me to you, my angel?

You delicate flower is filled with fangs.

Please stop exsanguinating me

This stranger, this lost acquaintance.

.

When I laugh you laugh too,

But a thousand miles away,

At a thousand different things to laugh at.

And when I cry you do nothing but laugh too.

.

Forget-me-nots become violent roses

When I come closer like the honeybees.

You swat me aside with your short flowery skirts

And kick me with your sparkling shoes.

.

Over the bleak hills, the ravines I will follow,

The flowing tails of your silk feathery wings.

Though you claw at me with your talons of steel

I promised you, when we were young,

.

That I would never let go.
