Heart torn stray

Sometimes I get moments like these

Moments where I am a butterfly

Don’t touch me or talk to me

Keep well away

Lest I fall apart today

A simple touch, an act of love

Will break me right in two

Because it never lasts as long

As I want it to

Some days I can’t bare the pain

It makes me fall apart

It’s better to leave me well alone

Because you’ll break my heart

Today I am a butterfly

Love stings me like a nettle

Because nobody ever stays with me

Nobody ever settles

So leave me alone today

If you don’t intend to stay

Because I will fall apart

When you leave this heart torn stray
