Broken Butterfly


I would have fought till my last breath
against the very Goddess of death
I would have stood in the way of every rolling hill
and slain every monster with my sword, until
you were safe and sound
in dreams profound
in your bed tucked, away
from every drowning bay
yet, as I lay here crumpled, in a pain so fine
you sit on a high seat, laugh and dine
with the fiends who pierced me, with their fiery spear
I scream and cry, but you find nothing to hear
And as I wonder with my dying sigh
if you were my friend or was it just a lie
you flare at me, raise a hue and cry
how could I doubt you, how could I deny
that you had a life and a right to choose
whom you wished to laugh with, whom you wish to bruise
And as you laugh there merrily, on your table so high
A broken butterfly, I quietly die...

I lost my best friend today-- To betrayal, to love and to pre-set notions.

The people who know you are the hardest to convince that you are trying to change.
The people who tell you what's wrong with you and what you need to improve are the first ones to think you are mocking them or being sarcastic,when you actually take their advice and try to be a "better" person.
The people who tell you to give them space are the ones who tell you to FO!!! for being a snob, when you do exactly that.

Why is it that the relationships we cherish the most are the ones that we invariably end up losing?
Why is it that "baseless insecurity" is what often leads to broken ties?
Why is it that the one person we trust with every hidden corner of our heart, betrays us the deepest?

Insecurity is mostly baseless... We tend to attach ourselves to others and in turn miss out on being affectionate as insecurity plays the spoilsport time and again....

Amazing last three lines !!

Hmm .. one can never know what is going on someone else's mind .. now you may say that its not true for people who know you through n through .. but times play their dice and things turn .. and then the misunderstanding grows ..

Hues and cries only elevate them .. thats why I prefer silence .. with silence it may be deep inside but at some level is very well forgotten .. i.e. in some sense you move on from those un-necessary time games ..

She will come back .. or you will reach out to her .. whichever way grass would be greener in your garden too :)

sumtimes we tend to expect too much from the people who we r too close to. when the other person doesnt reciprocate the way we want, it hurts us. It gives us too many insecurities of our relationship. best is to let go, dnt expect too much from ny1.
