Soul Butterfly

She grasps the music in her delicate hand
It doesn’t understand her innocence – so complete
Not tonight – not in this place
The words flutter out of her mouth
Like a crushed velvet soul butterfly
They groove as they move
Through the stale smoky air
Not tonight – not in this place
I want to take her away from here
Like I always want to save the ones I can’t have
She is too young and I am in my cups again
And will never get the chance
To catch even one soul butterfly
