She had never been a springtime Butterfly
But she had flown early from home
Leaving behind a family too busy
Listening to the tenor notes of their
Own voices moaning

Iambe’s  first home after that was one of isolation
An AM radio her music, she learned to dance
Listening to oldies, country, and Chicago’s rock
While her audience was the occasional deer or squirrel.
She moved in with him, because he had promised
Something better.

It was better
It was void of the tenor tones of family
And he worked on the road during the week
Leaving her to fend for herself.

She learned to fix things
Because she had to

She learned to drink
To kill the silence

She learned to leave
To save her sanity.

No Spring Butterfly
But she did learn to fly…

*sigh* you have created a character who you have given life to by breathing so much reality into her from the poems you write...This poem is absolutely magnificent...I love it...I absolute love these lambes...thank you....**big hugs**

Love I leave with you whether it is in your life now or yet the essense of your dreams.

"She learned to drink
To kill the silence

She learned to leave
To save her sanity."

In just a few words I understand her.  You know how to bring life with words

Thanks for the background.  On to the next one!
