~What is time to a butterfly?

What is time to a butterfly?

Something broken- no, wait.

Nothing.

Just a word uttered, with no meaning.

Everyone’s chasing it,

but it was never running-

just ticking.

~~~~~~

I’ll wait for you for years

if I must

for time is just a word.

~~~~~~

From the day I was born

I’ve been filling it up.

If reality is what we imagine it to be,

then time is nothing to me

but something humans created-

a countdown to their death.

~~~~~~

I’ll keep it locked up in a box

with every memory, every story.

I’ll keep filling it up

with everyone around me

they make me smile

they make me cry

I’ll love them still, all the while.

~~~~~~

And what is distance, when every decade

travelling from A to B

becomes faster?

Nothing, once again.

Nothing.

~~~~~~

Everything’s just a word

in the end, it’s all the same.

~~~~~~

I’ll wait for you for years

if I must

for time is just a word.

~~~~~~~

Or I’ll see you

at the Other Side.

~~~~~~
