Different Species

Different Species

I drink the flavored milk
that remains of my cereal,
checking my watch
to make sure I'm not late.
Out of the corner of my eye
I see you there
alone as I am.

Why are you alone?
You look like a butterfly.
Flutter by those who fly gracefully.

I am no such thing.
My presence is a shade.
I am alone because that is what I am:
A loner.

But why you?
Majestic and divine,
Where is the company you keep?
Have they lost there way to the grove of sweet scent?
Can we draw them close?

If we are indeed the same,
Why are we different?
It is a species thing.

Wolves eat butterflies,
When they are hungry enough.
They dance among our gaze,
Delicious!

Why are we divided?
Dance before me butterfly
Let me taste divinity
Let us be alone,
together.

Hello authors! I go by Dorian T. Gray; it's my author name. I'm hoping that it can be a way to keep my legal self somewhat apart from my inner self so when I get to my destination I can live a somewhat normal, mundane-ish life... Well aside from the charities and other stuff that I hope to attend.

My aim is to present my work here in hopes that everyone will give me their feedback (critiques and encouragement) and polish me into a better author. I will strive to do the same. I think that we all have a chance to be great writers but we need each other to grind away the awkward and ugly parts and make our pieces shine.

Thanks for Reading,

D. T. Gray
