I was five
When I first discovered death,
Lying beside an old dirt road.
It was a quiet butterfly
And Mommy said it was sleeping.

But I went back
To poke and prod
And wake that butterfly off the ground.
And it hit me
Right then
Exactly
What
Death
Was.

And the worst part
Was that it was
Beautiful.

So I took the butterfly
And carefully hid it,
Folding it gently inside its wings.
And when I could,
I looked at it,
But I never told anyone.
Death wasn't something to be
Kept.

I found other beauty as I grew.
I looked around and my eyes found
Girls
Girls
Girls
And I ignored death for a while until
I realized there were
Two
Things
In my life
That weren't supposed to be beautiful.

Death
And
Girls.

So I ran from girls,
But they were everywhere
And so was death
And the beauty was intoxicating,
So I had to tell someone!
Death and girls
Death and girls
Nobody listened.

Then I dug up that little butterfly
And I told it.
I told it everything about
Death and girls and running and beauty
And it never interrupted me.

So I just kept talking,
Right on talking.
Until, I guess, I finally understood.
Death and girls
Death and girls
Beauty was everywhere
And there's no use running
From
Yourself.
A reflection on growing into sexuality.

lol, I love your signature! I actually looked it up and it was originally Heels over heads, or a cartwheel, but eventually it changed meaning and order. ^^
