Sad and broken Butterfly
I just want to see you fly
Wet your wings, can't fly away
Wait until another day
Drink the sweet and lonely moss
Freeze and shatter in the frost
Capture your body, capture your mind
Capture your love, capture your time
Little angel in a jar
Can't stay here but can't go far
Lift the lid and watch you go
Where you fly the wind will blow
Let you go to life's demands
I went and destroyed your plans
Sad and broken Butterfly
I just want to see you fly

i love  this poem. one thing that u might look at is on the line that says, "I went and destroyed your plans" you might want to think about continuing the rhythm of the poem by making it, "I went and destroyed all your plans." Just a thought, but love it!! :)

This is great!! I don't know if you were trying to, but the butterfly could symbolize something. It would depend on people's perspectives. This is very well written! Awesome job!
