L’effet Papillon!!

She stood far from the sight of the ordinary.

She had that pink of perfection.

Ripped like a fruit and

clothed in her favorite colors.

I was looking smart and shy in my attire;

a suit and tie!

All I could do was wonder.

Took in slow and steady breaths 

as I stared.

Her figure close to “8”,

all we could do was gape;

my friends and I.

Ever seen the waves at dawn???,

or the sun rise in the morning???

She was adorned with grace,

and the desire to have her burned inside everyone.

Losing her to anyone was an option I wasnt willing to mention.

The Fruit of Eden;

probably because it was forbidden to make a move for her..

Possibly my lost rib,

potential mum to my child..

Love at first sight

wish I could tell her,

how her eyes and her smile inspired me to write this piece.

I wish I knew her more than I do now.

‘Wish I wasnt that shy.

‘Wish I had a pinch of confidence inside at that time.

But who am I to force her love, 

her friendship,

even a relationship??

So I keep my faith strong,

on this canvas of mine,

hope I paint the perfect picture;

the ideal image.

Based On A True Story;

today I realised that fear lies in our lack of awareness of the other side,

thus making us the same;

You and I.

So all I need is help from you.

Should I 

or should I not make a move

when the opportunity arrives;

hopefully another time??

Do i Dare…??

What do I have to lose..?

Her friendship or


Do I risk it all just for a relationship…????

Please help me out,

because unfortunately for me,

I have limited time.

Just like the life cycle of a butterfly;

on Friday, she appeared to be an egg

with red coverings.

On Saturday; she presented herself as the Larva ( Caterpillar),

and she never stayed in this stage for too long,

because on Saturday evening, The Pupa popped up,

undergoing a remarkable transformation,

and on Sunday,

She emergerd as a beautiful multicolored butterfly,

and just flew away from my sight.

Just because I was shy and lacked confidence inside,

I felt the “Butterfly effect!!”
