Untitled -- Your Eyes

You try to hide your love under those long lashes That shyness flirting at the edges of your eyes That innocent glance we hold Giving voice to all unspoken words Broadly smiling at me in gay abandon It beckons me into the satin-cool fabric of your woven dreams It sweeps me into a fragrant world of beauty and peace It kisses life between our moments of breathlessness It tires me with an unending ecstasy of timelessness Any longer... and I shall die Any shorter, I’d rather not live.

I like it, too. Did you write that yourself?

If so, who is it about?

Of course, I wrote that myself.
It's just an inspired, stylized version of observations I make..

I realized, just like my personal philosophy of life,
my art - my poems and my fictional works - are such an anti-thesis to the Beckettian mentality. I feel it is only appropriate that art should reflect one's philosophy of life.
