In a fractional instant

Subtle and unperceivable,

New emotions are born.

Emanating from the center,

Which is you.

In the blink of an eye,

They change

Conflicting –

“I do” and “I don’t”.

In the blink of your eyes

They change,

Between “now” and “later”.

Dreams grow, like bubbles

And burst as they swell

For with every blink your eyes

You cast another spell.

In a fractional instant

I am born, and I die

For all that I can be

Is between the blinks of an eye.
