the depths


in closeness you become 

more my self

than my self has ever been


the mystery of the space in you

unfolds itself in fragile gestures

that unravel my heart

to its most secret edges


in time i feel

as your heart more 

than my heart has ever felt


You a place that must hold

such impossible wonders that


in nearness

my heart’s edges burst, 

as levees;

i     can    not

i can not hold,

as atmospheres, 

pure feeling


from such impossible depths

as the depth behind your eyes
