Caprice

Butterfly heartbeat,
Last the week.
You know how I've longed
For you to appear.

I'll rearrange my ribcage
To encase you in ivory;
Don't flutter away
Upon an autumnal breeze.

Flicker your wings inside my chest;
I've waited so long for this delicate rest
Of infinite peace and sunlight solstice.

Butterfly heartbeat,
Last the year.
I'd forgotten the feeling
Of knowing no fear.
