A Poem About Madness, Butterfly, by R.D. Laing

I dreamt I was a butterfly
dreaming it was me
I looked into the mirror
There was nothing there to see.
"You lie", I cried
It woke - I died


From the book Do You Really Love Me? Also available in German, under the title "Liebst du Mich? - which has both the original and a beautifully translated version. I will be posting more from R.D. Laing as he is one of my favourite figures in psychotherapy.
