Cocoon

I am a butterfly
in reverse
returned to the worm
heavy with many feet
weaving my cocoon
in thin layers
each morning
around me
to shut out
all the pain
layer after
layer
spinning....
in the warm cocoon
are no thoughts
feelings
or reality
to shatter me
when the days
and nights
have passed
in reverse
spinning
their healing balms
someday I may
return
a butterfly
once again
