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.
