Wings of Butterfly

I have these wings
Here affixed upon my back
And yet try hard as one might
Still, they remain immobile. 

But then, I found you, 
My dearest butterfly…

And words cannot explain 
How my wings flutter in excitement- 
Without you, I am inert:
Motionless, still…lifeless…

So I wonder…
And I fear, 

What if my colours are too dreary
these shades of monotone hues
that have rejected so many others?

And why, I can’t help but think,
Were your vivid eyes drawn 
to these over-thrashed wings?

Created in pain,
a tear falls down her cheek... 
He catches it and whispers…
‘Because, my dearest butterfly…
I love such wings…’
