Blue butterflies leading the way
Through the dark forest.
Whispers following me
In the blackness.

I want to find him,
Embrace him one last time.
Even though it's been years
He has remained in my heart.

White moonlight shows his path,
Blue butterflies joined with red ones.
Our colours: life and death combined;
I can find him this time.

My last trip, my final choice:
It's all for a kiss.
His last words, his lovely voice
Still rings in my ears.

Soft laughter, I hear behind me.
I recognise it!
As soon as I turn around,
His beautiful face I see.

Little I know of this illusion
I don't want reality.
I embrace his cold body
And a kiss of death we share.

Now we are together
As red and blue butterflies.
Flying through the dark forest
Just us in the silence.
My entry for Leilalilium's contest :iconleilalilium:

EDIT: Sadly, I didn't win anything in the contest. I enjoyed it a lot though, and for some reason, this helped me find my muse. ^^

I used this [link] artwork as my source of inspiration. It took me a while to write this poem. Making something creepy, loving and yet beautiful is really difficult. Even now I don't think I managed to reflect all that I wanted, but this is the closest I got.

I hope you like my poem and I hope you find Leilalilium's artwork amazing as well. I think it's stunning.

I like the concept of combining two opposite things: Death and Love/Longing. Well, maybe they are not that far apart, given a good background, but still clash nicely.

Good luck winning! :'D
