Butterflies & Hurricanes

Colder now but not cold enough

The wings can only carry so far

Yesterday is a reflection and it burns

The envelopes are hidden and unopened

The teddy bears are dusty

The land remains still and that’s enough

His words carry only so far

If we are forever then make it so

This plastic heart cannot stand the weight

These butterflies are hurricanes when stirred

Never look back, those waves never stop beating
