                        butterflies

i don't like butterflies
no, i only think i'm supposed to munch on butterflies sometimes
tomorrow though, my sister needs to die
I dream once in a while, freaky
night makes me grin dorkily
And it had a message...
nowhere is nowhere, and nothing else
like... years ago
you were so proud of butterflies, But i don't like butterflies >.>
Im ashamed =(
like this hole in the glass you had to crawl through
PUT THE PHONE DOWN AND WALK AWAY!
Er... although you cant tell in this, it is actually made up of an MSN conversation I had with my best friend Dasha
:iconstupidduckquackers: There is red and purple text, the red bold the purple italic, and all the random parts of the convo came together in a poem I just recently found out is called Found poetry.

My lines:
flies
No,
munch on butterflies sometimes
my sister needs to die
I dream once in a while,
And it had a message
like... years ago
butterflies
but
I'm ashamed =(
PUT THE PHONE DOWN AND WALK AWAY.

Everything else is Dashas, including commas and such. Woo.

Can you believe all this came from an ACTUAL conversation?

Very nice! The source material for this poem is interesting and makes for a piece that is uniquely abstract. :D Thank you for participating in my workshop! Did you find any differences in the thought process of writing a found poem as opposed to other styles of poetry?
