    Those butterflies, they'll calm down after a while.
    And then you'll find an endless field.
    Filled with flowers.
    And thorns.
    Flowers wither if not watered.
    Thorns need your attention.

    It's time to mend things between us....
    We have gone on our own selfish ways and accused
    each other for not being enough to one another. Detach
    from those selfish thoughts and let us live in harmony
    accepting each other for the way we are!

    I had a dream,
    Where we were two butterflies
    Chasing each other in the fields of love.
    I woke up and realized,
    We are two wayward souls
    Treading on distant pathways
    Away from one another.

    How do I explain it?
    These new butterflies,
    This new shyness,
    Everything seems so right.
    The tickles in the heart,
    The racing of breath,
    Just like how it felt ,
    To fall in love for the first time.

    Standing aside...
    With no fate in my side..
    Having tears in my eyes...
    Grumbling fists are getting high...
    Terror is being a guide...
    Standing up is still not a choice...
    Logics are left behind..
    Words left their fly...
    Feet's are weak to rely...
    Heart is screaming like a child...
    Lips are denying to smile...
    Something is eating stomach from inside...
    Naval is paining from a while...
    Head is bustling from a long time...
    Ears are filled of wild butterflies...
    Nostrils getting blue lines....
    And blue cushion is the only thing I'm left to survive...
    To make everyone feel I'm totally fine...
    Like I have no blue scars left inside...
    Like I have all flowers in my life...
    Like my sky is full of colors that makes an eye...
    Yes I too lie..

    "I will be a fool not to recognize how lucky I am to have a friend like you," Tommy says. Knowing how much Nuella does for him on a daily basis to help him be the best he can and most especially in the way she would always do whatever it takes to make him, he is not prepared to lose her for any reason. This friendship they share does not feel like the regular one as although they are opposite sexes, they would spend virtually everyday in each other's company. The relationship does turn heads. Whenever they would walk into a room, people would stare, some wishing they could be just like them, others imagining that the relationship would end in tears. Some would go as far as warning Nuella to be careful with Tommy because like all men he has a pole dangling between his legs and once he is done getting her oil using the pole, he would abandon her like an old refinery and move for the next available lady but she would debunk the suspicion with the position saying,
    'Tommy is not capable of such and besides we are just friends. I mean if we would be more, that would be in the marriage circle and environment so there is no hassle'. Her greatest fears suddenly begin to come through, on one Saturday night after a little outing with Tommy and it would turn out to be the worst night of her entire life and existence. Having gone out in celebration of Tommy's birthday, they are both so spent.
    'Wow, happy birthday once again. Good man', she says as they make their way back to Tommy's apartment in Nuella's SUV. She had earlier insisted they used her car for the day's outing considering the fact that the occasion is Tommy's Birthday.
    'Thank you so much Nuella', Tommy says. 'I really do appreciate this gesture. I mean you really made my day. I had a swell time today. Thank you'
    'Don't mention', Nuella says with a wide smile.
    'Won't you come in?',he asks. 'Just spend at least a few minutes. Maybe we could watch a movie or something with a bottle of wine or a pack of juice as you prefer before you leave. I mean I cannot just let you drive me home and I would not at least say thank you even in the littlest way possible'
    'Oh. That does not sound like a bad idea....Let me park the car somewhere and we can go in.'
    'Why not you just drive right in?'
    'Oh that would be most expedient'

    Nuella expertly operates her vehicle, speeding into house as though the house is a mile away then promptly hitting the brakes as soon as she is into the gate to avoid ramming into Tommy's car before turning off the engine. She lets herself down easily out of her vehicle to follow after Tommy into his house.
    'Alright, alright...Make yourself comfortable. I'll be right back with a pack of juice for your entertainment. You can equally help yourself to some television.' Tommy says as he leaves Nuella for the kitchen. Returning a few minutes later with the pack of juice in his right hand alongside to glassware cups in his left, he extends his hand towards Nuella offering a glass with which to hold the juice he would later on pour for her.
    'Oh thank you my good man', she says with a smile as Tommy takes a seat on the third seat on the three-seater sofa living a vacant space between them while pouring a portion of the content of the juice pack for her and later himself. There is an awkwardness building up as they sit alone watching some random movies. Two hours into their unplanned movie night, they both begin to steal periodic glances at each other. They did earlier make an agreement not to allow their emotions get the best of them and lead them into temptation but in the next hour, all of that would go up like smoke.

    Catching each other's glances, the moment becomes rather tense. Right there, they could feel something more than just platonic friendship but would later swear it was a crazy error of the moment. Unplanned and rather spontaneous, too spontaneous, they lean in for a kiss. A young man, very cute and innocent and a young lady, beautiful and seemingly naive. They both thrill themselves to the joys of kissing and like a twin effect, the sex also comes along rather unknowingly. Almost into the sex after some intense kissing, Nuella suddenly remembers what her friend had told her earlier about Tommy being only interested in how she tasted and how he would live immediately after so she quickly stops the festival and demands that Tommy promises one thing,
    'Have you only been with me all these while as friends only in a bid to get in my pants as you are about to do?', she asks curiously and seriously.
    'No...What makes you think so? As a matter of fact, I'm only doing this because you want it. I promise you if you were not down with it. I would not dare'
    'So we will still be best friends after this? No shading....No sidelining.... Nothing or such?' To this, Tommy gives a nod. 'That's beautiful'

    A few moments later, they have had their fun and sit quietly naked under the sheets. Nuella waits on Tommy to say something but he remains as silent as can be. Unsatisfied with the earlier assurance, she moves for a more tangible assurance.
    'Today's your birthday right?' she hands him a gift-wrapped box. 'It is a wrist watch. Oh I ruined the surprise right? It's just a token to let you know you'll always be my best friend forever till time itself fades'.
    After she gives him the gift, she begins to get dressed so she could drive herself home to reminisce the moment she has just had with Tommy and have a good night sleep. Getting home, she quietly goes for a shower and rest for the night.
    The butterflies she picks from the experience with Tommy would not let rest. She keeps thinking of all they have done together even to the point of dreaming about their future of four kids, at least Tommy had given her such an assurance and made her believe they would be together but even Tommy does not know such would not come through.
    . Unable to sleep, she goes on a joyride around the city between the hours of one and five in the morning, some early joggers find her in a coma with her head having hit the steering wheel with a great force upon ramming into a tree,
    'Oh my Gosh. Please help me take her into the car so we could get her to the nearest hospital immediately', Ferdinand Clark, one of the joggers screams having flagged down a passing vehicle.
    They manage to get her into the vehicle with a 45-seconds combined effort before the flagged driver zooms off to the hospital determined to save her life.
    For sixty full days, Nuella does not move a muscle nor does she speak a word but remains as stiff as a stiff. On the sixty-first day, the doctors decide that she is most likely dead and decides to shut down whatever treatment they have been doing and take her to the mortuary but 8am, she moves one of her fingers to the shock of the doctors who then decide to examine her once more and are thrown off their horses by the fact that she is alive.
    Two days after she is out of the two month coma, she is discharged. She thinks she knows who Tommy is and that he will wait for her to return and hopefully marry her. A young lady, she thinks he loves her in that manner.
    A mutual friend who had been at Tommy's wedding in England, Marriet is who she runs into while trying to fix things up at her house seeing it had been left unkempt for the past two months. Bumping into her at the mall where she goes for cleaning supplies, they begin talking about the trending events she had missed while in the coma.
    The wedding of Tommy and Emilia.
    She goes on and on about how it was the talk of the town for a full month. As she goes on talking, Nuella is infuriated and feels very betrayed by Tommy.
    'I will see you later, Marriet', she says to Marriet as she storms out of the mall enraged and pissed to the astonishment of Marriet.
    Infuriated, she drives over to the Tommy's new home , almost ramming into the house, getting out of the car and stalking to the door muttering some bitter words while letting out some tears momentarily. She rings the door bell,
    'Who's there? Come in.', Tommy answer from the couch where he is seated with Emilia resting her head in his lap.
    As soon as Nuella strolls in to viewing range, Tommy springs up to his feet astonished at her presence in the house. Scared and shocked, Marriet follows suit wondering why he had jerked up so abruptly.
    'Oh so she is the lady you threw our promises of forever over', she asks almost in tears.
    'Everyone thought you would not make it out of the coma. I did not know what else to do in that scenario'.
    'Oh really?', Nuella pulls a gun at the couple. 'What happened to waiting? Oh yeah I forgot you are an impatient dog'.
    'What do you mean?', he asks surprised. 'You said you wanted it too'
    'Yes I did but not a fling', Nuella responds. 'I wanted to spend the rest of my life with you but I guess I was foolish'.
    'C'mon. Come off it. You know I....', he attempts to clear the air. Before he can finish his statement, she pulls the trigger letting out a bullet from the Beretta pistol she holds which meets Tommy in his neck killing him instantly.
    'No', Marriet screams as she falls down to her knees beside Tommy shaking him vigorously in hope that he is still alive but he is lifeless, cold and stiff.
    Nuella makes a run for it and is never seen again.

  • nighty 6w

    Let me be.

    Telling me this, telling me that,
    Don't do this, don't wear that,
    Trying to keep my cool, but I'm loosing my mind just as fast,
    Why should I listen to you when you don't even have your own ghouls under control,
    And yet you seem to want it all,
    Want it all to go your way,
    It's like we're going on and on, building thrill in you, as we act out your play,
    But today all that will change,
    Today, I'm my own life's mage,
    Alone all my battles I'll wage,
    And I promise you, I will succeed,
    So you can go on with your wicked deeds,
    As long as you, let me be me.

    Star crossed

    You hold my hand
    You lead me away
    I fall in your daze
    You hold me up
    Your smile is the one I yearn
    Your warm smile is the one I love
    Endless talks in the dark
    Your hand on my heart
    Butterflies going crazy
    Apart as day and night
    Don't even know how the stars crossed
    Somehow we end up on the same side
    cheesy mornings making me glow
    Being a tease, red blush ever persistent
    Beauty in all you are
    Yet you never believed it
    But perfection stared in my eyes under the moonlight
    Trust falls slowly became easy
    For your hand never slipped from my waist
    Never like the others
    Cared for me like no one did
    Expected nothing
    Just appreciated everything
    Just like a perfect gentleman
    I hurt you...I probably still do
    But you never allowed me to feel it
    Never felt this before, you say
    That's probably what love feels like
    Sweet baby this is what our love feels like

    Butterflies boy

    What has happened to me today ?
    I've never felt this before you came

    Into my life bringing moons and stars
    Something unexpected above all those scars

    Came a night I could never foresee
    There you were surprisingly

    Thinking of you through days and nights
    Flashes of your smile through my eyes

    Reminding of the small moments we had
    Your laugh ringing in my ears
    I realise oh I've fallen bad

    So start my dreams, about you
    The soft touch, unintentional
    Enough to make my day or even two

    The sparks I felt
    Wondering if you felt it too

    Oh it might be so normal for you
    But me, it was an emotion so true

    Running deep into my veins
    My heart blushes with glee too

    Cheeks flushed, when you're around, all the time
    Hope you never see it, constantly running through my mind

    Well I know for a fact
    That you will never notice me
    For you're way above my league
    And cannot like someone like me

    I know you're taken and have a queen
    So I shall never speak and leave you be
    I'm content with you in my daydreams
    But there's a hope one day we shall meet

    Every little thing, you noticed
    Was enough to give me those butterflies
    But oh you make my heart flutter
    I wonder if you can see it in m eyes

    What has happened to me?
    I've felt this way before
    Oh boy, you silly sweet boy
    What have you done to me?

    Love story ❤️

    Butterflies in stomach is not fairytale anymore
    Someone held my hand few days back
    And said
    "Come I'll take you to the shore"


  • geethalakshmi 10w


    Butterfly is
    the symbol
    of positivity
    that teaches
    the lesson how
    to make ourselves
    happy inspite of the
    short life time.
    The Caterpillar
    grows wings during a
    season of isolation.
    Remember that next time when
    you are alone. More than everything
    butterfliies are harmless creature
    and soft by nature.

    You habitate my dreams
    Loads have heard me scream,
    your name, and laugh when I'm talking to you
    I don't know how, but I think I know,
    It's always been you.
    Nowadays people look at me like I'm crazy
    My life's swaying like a field of daisies
    You'd think I'm constantly staring at my screen
    But it's our picture, gazing at which has become a routine.
    When your stomach becomes a home
    To a load of butterflies
    There's no reason left to deny
    When you cannot put anyone else above
    That's when you know that you're in love❤️✨

    In the thousands hearts of others,
    You still are mine favourite heartbeat,
    That rose up my butterflies with your one name.

    The butterflies

    Remember what you said when we first met?
    "I get butterflies in my stomach when I see you."
    But now,
    I've caught those butterflies,
    locked them in a cage,
    and put that cage in my heart.
    And wherever I go,
    I take the cage with me,
    and those butterflies fly in me.
    They remind me of you,
    they remind me of "us".
    Those butterflies and us,
    beside the seaside,
    on golden sand,
    under the dark skies,
    During moonlit nights.
    Two young hearts,
    You and I
    with rainbows and butterflies.
    But slowly, these butterflies will die,
    because I've locked them in a cage
    and this cage will rot,
    inside my lonely, broken heart.
    And you too can't keep the cage,
    Cause you don't have the space,
    To nurture these butterflies.
    So they will forever stay inside me,
    And will vanish,
    When I vanish,
    And you vanish too.

    Woo her not with flowers,
    Unless they come with thorns,
    Call her not the goddess of beauty,
    With grace a synonym of her name,
    She knows all of sweet words strung
    In a poem, like pearls upon a string,
    She has seen women before her choke
    To death under the weight of being the
    Perfect jewel, she knows all of little butterflies
    Hunted for their beauty, trapped in jars with
    Gold inlay, woo her not with beautiful things
    You decorate yourself with, unless that object
    Of beauty be a sword with her name on it;
    Of the star that burns in her own fire,
    Of the magic that makes a wallflower
    Breathe fire, of the beast that lives inside
    The bones of a lady, woo her not, unless
    You know of these things, for she has not
    A heart starved of love, she is not a trophy
    To adorn your arm, she is not a helpless
    Angel fallen from the heavens, woo her not,
    For in wooing, you go down the wrong path,
    Instead, vow to sacrifice yourself on the altar
    Of her love, and mayhap, she will invite you
    To witness the universes she holds in her being...

    In her smile; you will find mysteries
    Unfolding, in her embrace, you will find the
    Warmth of the earth's core, in her kiss, oh,
    You will lose your demons, but when you
    Lose your heart, you will find a woman
    Of passion, of enchantment, in posession
    Of a surreal power, for she lives and she
    Loves without making apologies.

    ��The Butterflies ��

    Gentle and strong
    as they listen to their own song
    just dancing along to their heart's symphony
    while they blend into nature's own harmony

    The elegant dance of two
    where one never overcoming the other
    just pure balance between the two
    nothing matters but each other
    as they glide upon the wings of love
    no push or pull
    just gently fluttering denying earth's pull

    Beautiful to the sight
    a rare lesson to anyone's lucky sight
    how love can exist purely without strife
    instincts,thoughts,and emotions as one
    as the dance of two earthly angels becoming one

    Longing bygone Butterflies

    When the butterflies dance
    I'm thinking is this finally gonna happen?
    When dark minds connect,
    forever is imminent.

    When butterflies begin to drift
    We've done and said it all.
    Our common interests flowing along.
    Conversations completely normal.
    Except, I was left to wonder.
    While all this was for another girl.

    When butterflies begin to question everything they are.
    Did I talk to much?
    Should a white emo guy date his kind.
    A brown emo girl maybe isn't his type?
    I was never given a reason.
    I would reach out hoping for a response.
    Heartbroken because I never received one.
    Is it their personal darkness they wish to keep me from?
    Should I not blame myself?
    Am I ugly, slutty , loud , black and proud?
    Flip a coin and see where it lands?
    Girlfriend chic or one night stand ma'am?
    What am I doing wrong?
    I get a tune here and there but I never get a full song?
    Do I fall for the fallen?
    Incapable to love anyone not even themselves?
    Never get to close the shadows are the safest of homes.
    All of these theories running through my mind.
    I like a certain man everytime, and I only get a days worth of dancing butterflies.
    And then they disperse, just like you.
    My heart is on repeat,
    Beating to the same story
    Always racing to stop the ending.
    When butterflies just want to be loved.

    Shining eyes was just a few meters away,
    Rail tracks of the heart,
    Ignited the old lovers,
    Millions of butterflies,
    Yearned to fly again,
    Learnt to flutter,
    Over the skies
    Visions afar,
    Endured my love!
