Madame Butterfly

Anan is an online blogger and private consultant since 2009 in the areas of relationships and interfaith spirituality.

There was a far away land

where love was scarce and sacred.

There was a space in time

when women were perfect wives.

There lies the story of Madame Butterfly.

A flower with dreams of greatness

that only love could made real.

a foreigner, filled with deception

in lies wrapped his true intentions.

Tears, bitter goodbyes in the air.

Waiting for her lover

Until words had no meaning

until her heart stopped aching.

Then maybe this would be over.

Loosing faith in a forgotten promise

cried the last cry, Madame Butterfly.
