Mimicry in Butterflies Is Seen here on These Classic “Plates” Showing Four Forms of H. numata, Two Forms of H. melpomene, and the Two Corresponding Mimicking Forms of H. erato. This highlights the diversity of patterns as well as the mimicry associations, which are found to be largely controlled by a shared genetic locus [15]. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

We repeat this
In each life returns the same thread
We repeat this
From betrayal of a lost kiss
Comes the certainty of true dread
But no matter what we have said
We repeat this

Please don’t lose heart
Even while the arrows come your way
Please don’t lose heart
Try now to press the re-start
There is so much you can still say
Many ways this game can yet play
Please don’t lose heart

I’ll forgive you
Even through the dark you’ve done now
I’ll forgive you
For I see all that you’ve been through
See that you survived it somehow
In that dark place you were allowed
I’ll forgive you

Glad it’s over
Let all the fires now burn out
Glad it’s over
Now in solitude recover
See the way that this has turned out
Never showing what it’s about
Glad it’s over

(Thanks to Kira for introducing me to the Rondelet poetic form – hope I’ve got it right!)

    Wonderful creation! 🙂
    I was inspired to write one myself;
    Listen to it
    song of an empty hopeless heart
    Listen to it
    crackle of the fire, matchstick lit
    creating a burning piece of art
    its colors my breath did impart
    Listen to it
