Caged Butterfly

April 8, 2010
Tear me apart.
Just another butterfly.
Pinned down by her wings.
Or is it by my heart?

Label and classify me.
Ignore me.
My screams.
My cries.
My hurt.

All I want is a chance.
To fly.
To dream.
To love.
Mistake my screams for songs.

The caged canary never sings.
Is the butterfly any different?
Silent cries.
Pleading eyes.
Insigificant to the bigger picture.

Should I try to speak?
Would you listen?
Would it matter?
Would you let me go?

Kill me.
Hold me down.
Trap me here.
Caged butterfly.
