If Neither One Of Us Can Leave It - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

In your eyes,
You've decided...
I would be,
A fantasy you'd like to reach.

And,
In your eyes...
I can see,
There is something I do receive.
Something you wish to give to me.

I can feel,
In your eyes...
Something real.
In your eyes.
Wanting with a yearning.
A passion there burning.

I begin thinking,
What would it be like...
If I lived my life,
With you.

I find inside,
I am thinking...
What would it be like,
If I lived my life...
With just you.

If neither one of us can leave it,
Then we must both believe it...
Since we seem not able to leave it alone.
If neither one of us can leave it,
Then we must both believe...
In instant love.
