butterfly light

a black hole
draws to it
all manner of positive energy
in the universe.

when i am startled,
i wish there were someone there
to pat my back
and shush me back
to sleep again.

now i am grown
and i pat my own back,
i soothe myself to sleep
even when i startle.

little bird, little bird,
rest your head beneath my wing.
feel my warmth
and my heart beating faster
as the rain falls.
i am scared, too,
but i will keep you dry
as best i can.

i have been inexplicably drawn to you
from across the one song we sing;
some parts resonating within you
resonate with me, too.
we come together for a purpose
much larger than ourselves
and our cells.
i love a good metamorphosis.
