Butterflies

Happy Friday dear friends and poets.
.
Today’s poem is the 2nd part of my series poem called “I Didn’t Know”.
.
This is my first venture on series poetry. Series poetry feature recurring characters and/or settings, often with a common tone as well. Serial poetry therefore takes an initial idea and expands on it over time, rather like episodes in a television show.

Butterflies

i didn’t know butterflies ever lived inside me waiting to fly, waiting to soar
until the day i saw you, i felt fluttering sensations
as if a million little butterflies were screaming, wanting to be freed
every single cell in my body was churning, cramping, feeling anxious, shaking, shivering, twitching by just the sight of you,
i didn’t know butterflies could live in my stomach until i saw you
i didn’t know butterflies could go crazy, as crazy as they became when i had you

    Superb poem, SweetMich! The progression from words, to feelings, to poem remind me of metamorphosis!
