View Full Version : A Fly

I caught a caught a fly
I held it held it twice
Till my bare skin became broken again
I thought a thought of life
And watched it watch it die
I screamed it cried
I held it tight
Cradled it far from harm
and light
I never saw the moment it flied
I Tried as I tried to whisper its name
But I only conjured a gleam of hope and an aching pain
What became is what became
chasing a dream to catch a fly
Till my hands went numb and my eyes went blind
Till I lost my own mind
One day I know I will catch the fly
Pull apart its wings and never let it fly away
