Butterfly TouchesIn my mind you were colored the lightest blueButterfly Touches7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Like butterfly wings
Shine rubbing off on your fingers at a touch.
You loved them
Because they were so pretty-fragile
And theres nothing
More beautiful than effervescence.
Im fragile too.
Fragile and trying to get the me without you back
One touch at a time
And it still feels like butterflies alighting on my arms
On the most tender of skin, the skin still
Aching from the touch
Because every time your hands brushed mine
A little bit of me
Escaped to powder your fingers.
