she had a bumblebee
    tattooed behind her ear
he had a beetle
    wings spread as if leapt off his spine
she had a hummingbird
    perched on the back of her left shoulder like a pet
they had butterflies
    symmetrical droves extending off their arms

they called themselves the flyaway kids
    they were supposed to be able to escape
    fly away from their problems
    and into each others' arms

but even those who fly must land
    they all knew landing was the worst part.

    I really like this. It's sorta deep sounding, and I love how the ending is a shockingly amazing ending. So dramatic. Great job!
