Butterfly Love

You were my love
your lips sucking
nectar from my lips
my glistening cheek

But today you
fly off and another comes
lips, cheek, sweat
another you wings away

Another comes
sips my sweetness
flits off as
another comes
fans its wings
sucks my lips dry
desiccates my cheek

My heart shrivels
I look up
butterflies circle
deceptive beauties
speckle the sky
sear my soul

Oh, you and you
and you and you
love me again
