Tik-Tak / Tick-Tack

Gledala sam u minute koje je brojao mali crni brk… kako vreme sporo prolazi kada ga posmatraš sa pažnjom! Da li je to tako i u životu? Čekajući da mi se nešto dogodi hodala sam hodnicima prošlosti, u bunilu, u snu… Razbijeno ogledalo čežnje, ljubavi koja dolazi-odlazi-počinje-prolazi, ali uvek isto boli, gledalo me je bez milosti. Nisam mogla više da slušam kako minuti prolaze, kako dani odmiču bez mene, a toliko toga sam htela da završim i započnem. Zgrabila sam jaknu i pojurila niz ulicu. Slušala sam ritam svojih koraka, udisala duboko svež vazduh, pogledala na nebo uramljeno oblacima i kupolama starih zgrada iz nekog dalekog vremena… Uviđam koliko je vreme relativno, ove ulice i trgovi su tu već decenijama, a sada, sada smo svi tu, u ovome trenutku prelamaju se vekovi.

I watched the minutes counted by the little black mustache… how time passes slowly when you look at it carefully! Is that so in life? Waiting for something to happen to me, I walked the corridors of the past, in a trance, in a dream… A broken mirror of longing, of love that comes-goes-starts-passes, but it always hurts the same, looked at me without mercy. I could no longer listen to the minutes go by, how the days go by without me, while I wanted to finish and start so much. I grabbed my jacket and hurried down the street. I listened to the rhythm of my footsteps, took a deep breath of fresh air, looked at the sky framed by clouds and domes of old buildings from some distant time… I can sense how relative time is, these streets and squares have been here for ages, and now, now we are all here, in this moment where centuries intersect.
