"If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put foundations under them."
Henry David Thoreau

"I fell in love the way you fall asleep; slowly, and then all at once."
John Green

Right now I’m trapped
Within my own cocoon,
In captivation.
Right now I’m dreaming
Of a different world,
For liberation.

I’m yearning for
Aching for the feeling
Of vegetation
Beneath my wings.
I long for more than
Sparse visitation,
Overactive imagination,
Lack of destination.
I long for the flora,
The fauna,
The sectors of nature,
The slight upheaval of these
Vibrant wings
Beneath the wind.

Right now I’m locked
In a stagnant world,
From outside sensation.
Right now I’m caged
In an electrified prison, yet
For transformation.

Inspired by myself and butterflies. I seem to have a lot of poems dedicated to butterflies. My great-grandmother was very partial to them, and I guess I picked that up... Eh, I'll skip the life story, just enjoy ^.^
