where did all the butterflies go
did they fly into the sun
I didn't notice when they left
but now they're gone
it's funny
I don't know when I switched
from someone who sewed her own butterfly net
to chase them
to someone
who didn't even care
when they abandoned her
too wrapped up in her own
little word
now I miss them
and their distractions
they were such good listeners
but now I'm left in a different kind of silence
it's colorless
and gray
and it's not peaceful
like the butterflies
