Vivarium

You fill my stomach with butterflies

Like I'm your own personal vivarium

Just a glass building

With two arms and two legs

I'm hollow and full of wings

Fluttering and flapping against

My inner walls

My eyes now belong to you

So let me drown you

In their Morpho blue

You shatter me open

To take my heart

Like a giant beating Monarch

Flowers bloom within me

When I'm with you

Tangling and curving

Giving their nectar like

Succulent liquid gifts

From their open arms and lips

And I want all of you around me

Like a cocoon

To give me wings

Like the ones you fill me with

Make me your vivarium

Full of butterflies

So there'll always be

A multicoloured world inside me

Just for you

Make my skin glass

So you can see past it to my core

Of petals and wings

And turn me into a butterfly

Like the ones that are inside

My stomach because of you.
