    Flutter

    May 2, 2018

    An impeccable veneer.

    Strong.

    Stoic.

    Steady.

    But her eyes,

    The slightest tremble of an eyelash,

    Betray the barest hint

    Of something fragile;

    A butterfly, trapped,

    Frantic fluttering,

    Beating itself against glass walls

    Over

    And over again.

    Until

    Exhaustion overcomes

    And death brings everlasting sleep.
