she sleepwalks through her sorrow’s day
unable to face fully awake
inventing chores to fill the space

within her heart, and oft she prays
unwelcome thoughts are kept at bay
lest they flood in, sweep her away

to destination yet unknown
a one way ticket with no way home
the biggest fear to face: alone

but sometimes on the lonely drive
shadowy butterflies let loose inside
shredded wings that no longer fly

tear at secrets with every beat
ripping at muscle, heart beats retreat
raindrops sizzle on tarmac heat

violet cloudburst shall not sleep
turns to the forest green and deep
pulls over ‘neath the trees and weeps
