today would be a perfect day to be a butterfly.
I could spread my delicate wings and fly far, far away. anywhere but here.
I could watch people admire my grace and beauty.
but they do not know me.
they did not see my metamorphosis. my transformation.
they did not notice when I cocooned myself away from the world, to hide the darkest parts of me.
they see me as I currently am. not my past. not my future.
part of me finds comfort in this.
now they watch as I flutter away. high into the sky. my head in the clouds. until my heart is safely guarded.
because that is what I do. I fly away when someone comes too close.
