I know how to catch butterfly

he thought 
I were a flower
Then he alighted on my arm

a very beautiful butterfly
as if
talked to me

I painted my admiration
to his charm
through out my smiles

i asked
"Why do you perch on my arm
Don’t you looking for sweet nectar"

then he replied
"darling dear....
my wish is to drink all the sweetest words
that came out from the cocoon behind
your skin
for that was the sweetest nectar to my soul”

my silence torned my thought

words are sweeter than the sweethest nectar

how beautiful 

i know 
how to catch butterfly...
i know how to
have thousands of butterflies
perch all over my body

i know how to catch 
my love
