Taken to Defence

In the graceful flight of a butterfly
Soft gossamer wings beating air
Whispered breeze announcing
All intent of gentle presence
Swept away by vicious storm
Thunder booming that I’m here
Lightening whips a barbed cord
Judgement in abundant offering
Scorning eyes burning blisters
Caused to deviate from course
Defensive turrets forced to raise
Impenetrable shell of icy clam
Damaged to life’s possibilities
By the pain of course opinion
Armour that I have donned
Once my wings were broken
By your unconsciousness
