Following A Society of Hounds I’ve been pairing poems with images a lot more:

Cosmic Butterfly–

You are eternal,
Forever in my mind.

I have chased you,
But never caught you.

Only in fantasies do my hands find your wings.

I fell upon my own ambitions,
compressed into a void.

You flew undaunted,
a burst of light that illuminated my dreams.

Everytime I give up,
Every moment I believe you lost to that blackness,
Every second I hold my breath,

You return.

The beauty of your light is that I never had to steal it,
you always gave it freely.

Cosmic Butterfly
