Plucked and Plundered
by Shy Leigh
I've known Pain like a butterfly
plucked and plundered
of its wings
on the ground
as the angels once were
and still are

Anguish filled imagery that associates physical pain with spiritual agony. Unique and fresh imagery that presents an alternate perspective on life. Great read.
