butterfly, noun [poem]

butterfly, noun
1 the form a caterpillar takes after dissolving in its cocoon; or
2 the things that flutter in my stomach when I get nervous sometimes; or
3 you were the branch that held my chrysalis while I melted into nothingness; or
4 you were an anchor as I remade myself a butterfly with wings unfurled and life renewed; or
5 it is a wish in flying colors; or
6 you are a wish granted in flying colors
