Dead Butterfly - Dawngi Chawngthu

throw away my memory
throw them into
unknown areas of your mind

unlit
dark
grey… areas

your haloed moments
your sane and conscious moments
will never find you here

your back is turned
your mind is closed
your love is gone

but someday
a quiet and lonely evening
may catch you off guard

taking a stroll
through the wastelands
of your mind

you will find me
sitting in a darkened corner
a dead butterfly in my hand.


Dawngi Chawngthu  recently added a new feather in her cap with several of her poems included in the anthology A Stream of Poetry published by Brian Wrixon Books in Ontario, Canada.
