Velinka Petkovic


it opens and closes its wings

anxiously awaiting what your visit may bring

already aware that soon it is past

time will be running, always too fast

the moment I set my eyes on you

the butterfly in my belly, what will it do

it will flap its wings at neckbreaking speed

vibrating air, generating heat

in shared moments it will fly

through whirlwinds, valleys and into the sky

reaching for the sun and getting burnt

the moment you leave it returns

to close its wings, keep it safe

the memory of you is at stake

from this it will feed till I see you again

when the nervous dance anew I begin
