Lupus Butterfly

by Angela Roarke

Angela Roarke
You see me fly around as if nothing is wrong....
You see my beautifully coloured wings flap back and forth...
What you don't see is the pain that is retching through my body...
What you don't see is the river of tears that I hide behind...
I am the lonely among you...
a sheltered life wrapped around in this cocoon of mine...
just to be invisible from your reality...
so as my life goes on, you will only see the reflections of me flying around as if nothing is wrong...
I am a beautiful lupus butterfly.
