Here is a story of a girl who met a boy
Who gave her all the attention she never sought for.
Eventually, his flattery yielded her butterflies in the stomach;
She thought it would last but the same butterfly broke her heart.
He gave her butterfly she never asked,
A butterfly she thought would last;
Yet, as time goes by the story of the butterfly – she realized –
Is but an unending lie.
The butterfly boy flew away
Never wishing to return again;
The sunflower girl got her petals fall down like teardrops,
Sunny yellow drops that turned into gloomy black ones.
Days passed, months even, another year turned into a tragic past,
She saw the butterfly boy returned;
Still exactly the way he was when the sunflower girl met him;
Enticing, flattering, deceiving but somehow enjoying
A company of a new flower girl he found.
With sixteen petals and nine leaves, the new flower girl he found.
