Encased

I fluttered about you
Like a butterfly,
Flitting to and fro
Tirelessly.
With the flick of a wrist
You brushed me away,
Like a common pest,
Absently.

Years later you approached
Propositioning
And complimenting
Sincerely.
I chanced and took the bait
Spread my wings for you
Gave my heart and soul
Completely.

Now I flutter no more
And flitter far less
Begging for release
Profusely.
There’s a pin through my back
As now I’m encased,
A treasure of yours,
Securely.
