Drift Away

Eagle eye, piercing

Locked with deadly precision

On your voiceless child


An eternity wasted

With her pinned like a specimen

On a cold steel table


Picked at and prodded

With stern disappointment

This one was not enough


Broken spirit

And a distorted body

Without the strength to bloom


But then she blossomed differently

With unexpected colors

And flew away


Your eagle eye is clouding now

Lacking sharpness

Losing its place


The past is fading

And the specimen looks back

As your mind floats into darkness


Time seems shorter now

But can this butterfly learn to love you

Before you drift away?
