The Cricket and the Butterfly

The cricket said to the butterfly;

"Butterfly, I wish I could fly;
Radically high;
Entwining with our sky.
You are so beautiful.

Can I be you?"

The butterfly whispered to the cricket;

"Cricket, you are quite spry;
As I am shy;
I will try to let you fly.
Take my wings;
Though, you must know;
You will die;
Twice as fast as I.

Can I be you?"

The cricket replied with a sigh to the butterfly;

"I can not lie;
Nor, will I deny;
I desire not to die;
But if for a moment;
I could be as lovely as you;
I shall comply and say goodbye;
Before my time;
As you imply."

A quizzical guy with a curious glass eye;
Happened to pass by.
He said to the cricket and the butterfly:

"Why can't you be you;
And she be she?
I'll be I;
As things should be.
You are you;
And I am me.
Lucid logic you can't see.
You must be pleased;
With your symphony;
Cricket.

Butterfly;
Though, you will perish;
You must cherish;
But if for a moment;
Brilliant wings.

Delicate;
Graceful;
Resplendent."

Fascinating, this fellow;
With the capricious toupee;
Went about his way;
To mingle with eccentrics;
Playing croquet.

The cricket said to the butterfly;

"Let's pretend he had naught to say;
Can I be you?"

The butterfly whispered to the cricket;

"Okay."

Of course.
A lot of thought into or naturally wordy?

"Phobias"

Poinephobia and taphephobia, thrive to survive.
Though the chances are slim if you're buried alive.

Ponophobia, panthophobia; suffering and pain.
The slightest of aches may drive you insane.

Hadephobia, dementophobia; horrid demons in Hell;
Your nightmare derives from the angels that fell.

Homophobia, blood is your most despairing fear.
Thick, this liquid matter. You cringe when it's near.

Achluophobia, the darkness of twilight is your fright.
Extinguishing all light instigates an unfortunate night.

Monophobia, you panic when you're, oh, so alone.
Solitude begets hysteria when everyone is gone.

Scelerophobia, the vile and wicked may do you harm.
You're guarded consistently by contingent alarm.

Necrophobia, who isn't afraid of their inevitable death?
Though, cowering at everything;
Panaphobics, is wasting your breath.
