Broken Butterfly

byRussian_Doll©

Limping across the counter
Observed in abject enthrallment
Wings broken and twisted
The flame draws near

Sweltering, screaming, blazing heat
Tortured with cruel relish
Wings frayed and distorted
On a knife edge

Hissed intake of breath
Ragged, grief-stricken
Wings ripped off
Pierced by drawing pins

Enclosed in glass
Up n your pedestal
Wings chained around your neck
Love breaks the wings
Of a butterfly on a wheel
