butterfly shutter

text was used for a photopoem for my doll site.

turn on your eye and look my way
how should I smile for you?
what should I be for you?
(anything if) you give your gaze only to me

caught in your glow
i'm a butterfly under your lens

flash
you pin me
light me up ever so much brighter
until the sun is but a candle
(i'm a butterfly under your lens)
wings in frozen flight
but i'm only a moth
so drawn to your flame
so scorched by your flame
destroyed a thousand times forever

flash
it pins me
perfect remains preserved a thousand times forever

how can I look away knowing
that i'm wingless without you?
without your flutterbye lens
without your butterfly shutter . . .
