Plucked and Plundered

by Shy Leigh

I've known Pain like a butterfly
plucked and plundered
of its wings
crawling
on the ground
writhing
in agony
as the angels once were
and still are
...unredeemed.

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