The Sweetness of Butterfly lips

Shadows in lurking depression distorting the truth

Blurring reality with delusions that reside on the same coin

Where life is a toss that lands on the edge or face down

Whichever way up


A cup of despair overflowing spoiling the moment

Staining the well trodden stomping ground of hope . . .

And then a brief moment of bliss

The sweetness of butterfly lips

Gentle fingers caressing the pain

Brings the sun out again
