The Butterfly

"I have wit, I have charm, I have brains,
I have legs that go all the way down to the floor, my friend."

When I stroll out alone
along the street.
The people stop and gaze at me,
to seek out my beauty from
from head to toe...

...and then I taste the sly desire
that gleams from admiring eyes.
They can see all my beauty which lies
concealed in my heart, perceived
from my outward charms.
So, this scent of ardent desire
surrounds me and fills me with pleasure!

...and you who know, who remember
and fret, you flee from me like this?
I know very well you will
not speak of your anguish....
and yet I sense you feel ready to die!
