Rainbows and Butterflies

There are no heroes in this story
Capes and captains are for the optimists
I’m acutely baffled with serenity
You’re forbidden to understand this nightmare
You are a gift from god
Your halo blazes my eyes
The reflection is rainbows and butterflies

The butterflies soar above my shadows

I don’t see light
I don’t see rainbows
I’m creative and useless

As I strut pavements
Bodies drift aslant
Negative space profiles
Piercing anxious eyes
Pulsate the seconds

I translate compassion with a smile
I trust my intentions are harmless
I would never scar a butterfly
