I HAD A DREAM

A little dream, I dreamt
A butterfly I saw
Oh! How beautiful she was;
But vulnerability I noticed in her flights
A little away from the flutter
A little different from her companions
I kept watching her effortlessly 
She went on to the red flower
As her feet touched the flower
It wilted so ruthlessly,
as if it had been like that since days
She was scared and helpless
Flying away from the flower,
I saw her mourning on a stone
She had been strong but now it was getting difficult to exist on her own
No flower is meant for me
No flower will ever accept me 
she said
I went closer and assured her that her flower must not have bloomed yet
I don't feel like holding on she wept
The only flower that welcomed me was the rose
And it was plucked mercilessly by someone who belonged to your world
I convinced her to go for the yellow one
Pity! How disheartedly she agreed to that as red had been her only desire
She settled on that flower gracefully
As she kissed it, the flower began to brighten up, as if to present its being to her and enhancing the beauty of that little garden
I started to feel restless 
As I saw them coming to snatch away her peace that she had just started feeling
They tore her crystal like wings that were as delicate as a waterdrop
And squeezed her body with their hands
How cruel they were!
The flower bowed in sorrow
And wondered why they wished to kill every beautiful thing 
maybe they didn't know the value of what they held in their hands
or maybe it was no good for a delicate entity to exist
I had another dream
