my innards churn with butterflies
anxiety

fear dressed up; a clever disguise
this is hellish, all of me cries
anxiety

I am on a personal challenge to explore and write in 100+ different poetic forms.  To assist me in this journey is Robert Lee Brewer’s The Complete Guide of Poetic Forms where he gives the form and an example. Churn with Butterflies is #42 in this collection I’m calling, very simply, 100+ Poetic Forms.
