Tattooed Butterflies

Tattooed Butterflies

She kept her friends inside the pages of her notebook
Hidden neath the mattress
Neath the satin where she dreamed
She wandered through the darkness
Through the poems within her mind
Poetry of her life that never rhymed
The ink with which she penned
From the wells of mystic streams
Mixed within delusions of her dreams

But tomorrow never lingered in the verses on the page
Hidden neath the mattress
With her amber bottled sage
She wandered in illusions
Of her tattooed butterflies
Hiding softly neath the lace
Of her disguise
Pages of her notebook
Painted hues of naked truth
Hidden in the darkness of her youth

She kept her friends inside the pages of her notebook
Hidden in the shadows
Of delusions lost in time
She wandered through the ruse
Of the music near her breast
Poetry of her life that’s left undressed
Left beneath her pillow
Dreams of tattooed butterflies
Hiding softly neath the lace
Of her disguise
