My theme: My W.I.P. and my 1st attempts at poetry.
I will post a poem based on some aspect of my current work in progress whether that be a character or an important theme. So here is my first entry, based on the letter 'A' for my main female character, Ailith. I hope you enjoy it.
Once human, blessed only to live a moment.
She transforms, a glittering butterfly
Unfurling her wings. Appearing fragile
As she flutters about uncertain, impulsive
Thoughtlessness remaining within, obscuring
Her light, one wrong decision after another.
Darkness gathers, surrounding the butterfly.
Duty thrust aside
For love. She dooms her world,
Fails her god. Glitter fades as
Allusion is revealed. Divinely
Chosen, imperfect, a caterpillar with broken wings.
