Fold my body into a paper heart

Reflect my outside from my insides

Open me like a paper toy

Tell me what you see.

Foxes chase the forest fowl

Sly and cunning with the kill

You snip my scarlet sleeve with ease

Swallow me whole.

Close the chest at the foot of my bed

Lock it with a red key

Tired of your gruesome game

I let sleep carry me.

Take me into the darkest night

Where bats collect the bugs

A cave painted black by dusk

Shrouded like a cape.

Day breaks and I pull my body

Apart from slumber’s jacket

Metamorphosis brings new life

My butterfly effect.

      1. No problem. By the way, feel free to change the comma at the end of my comment to a period. (O.G.’s losing his eye-to-hand coordination lol).
