There is a desire

for life to reset

but a storm is brewing

and twisted, gnarled butterflies

swarm is a knotted stomach

life goes pale

the dreaded deadline

inching closer

skipping things that

were neccessary

but ignored

a face, hot with

tears is stuffed in

hands that

are tearing apart

from the inside

for a reason 

that was thought

to be overcome,

but wormed its way

into your heart.
