“We are all a little weird and life is a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.” - Doctor Seuss


Tears run down the face of a butterfly; only once or twice;
Tears of gold, or tears of poison;
Either one might happen
It all depends on the butterfly,
Whether she's good, bad, or both;
Dripping drops of diamonds with the tears of gold,
Leaking snakes and spiders in the tears of poison,
And then for the good and bad,
Rare liquid dreams await the butterfly's with a diversity of good and bad
But this really never happens,
As butterfly's almost never cry,
So you'll be lucky if you ever see;
The Tears of Butterfly's

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

This is great. I loved how you put it into words. Haha, I'm a big fan of butterflies and fireflies. : ) Thank you, for sharing this. Also, hi. I'm just a newbie. : )

More like my best friend and I talking about random topics and then I came up with it on the fly. I kind of wrote it on impulse. :)

Really great ideas and word use. Made me want to go watch the butterflies and try to catch one crying.

The saddest thing in the world, is loving someone who used to love you.

This is Really Good. I Love your use of words, and it just makes the poem have a more powerful message then it already does. 5 Stars.

This is absolutely beautiful.  You give the reader a clear image of what you might or might not see and I love how you played with certain words, I'm loving the images. Great duende.
