The Purple Butterfly…#OctPoWriMo 2018


The purple butterfly enthralled me

As she glided down to touch my hand

My world was spinning out of control

When now, this beautiful creature – did land


The feeling of disconnectedness

I had succumbed to its fiendish grasp

Did my soul come to a precipice

Before this angel unveiled her mask


Indeed, I tell this story

For this story – it was true

It happened before I took my life

Don’t let it happen to you
