A Lover's Gaze

For sometimes
When your eyes are
Upon me,
The world opens
and receives our belonging
Like two small rivers,
giving unto the sea.

Waves are each other's graveyards -
Rising and Falling
Share and are shared.

But if you
Shut your eyes
Because the sun
penetrates the blinds,
Then the door of your room
And the world makes me
an object of its putrid desire.
