butterflies

I didn’t think the butterflies were still alive

The ones who flew around inside me and made me feel lighter than air

that made me feel beautiful,

Appreciated,

Loved.

I thought they had all left with the last boy who walked away with my heart

But then you smiled at me

And you meant it.

The butterflies were suddenly there again.

Before you, I was alright

I hadn’t really missed the butterflies because I had learned to live without them

I was fine on my own

But with you fine is not good enough

You make me want to be better everyday

And I realized that with you I’m happier

With you, I’m more me

The best parts of me
