Dreams & Delusions…

The Raven, The Butterfly, The Wolf

I know I’ve been wrong,
I’ve hidden for too long.
Sometimes the pain
Blurs my eyes,
All I see is
My own demise…
I have more than
I could ever ask for…
Though, I keep knocking on
That same hidden door…

Sometimes I’m not really sure
Who I’m looking at in the mirror.
Is it the Raven, the Butterfly, or the Wolf?
They are all me, I can’t deny.

My colors shift-
From Black to Iridescent,
And back again.
I pierce, I tear, I deceive.
I caw, I howl, I flutter.

My identity shimmers
Like heat
Like smoke
Like rain…

I’m coming back in fragments-
In filaments of light,
Bursting through sight…
In sparks of electricity,
Shattering through me…
