Interpretation

Somewhere within your loving look I sense,
Without the least intention to deceive,
Without suspicion, without evidence,
Somewhere within your heart the heart to leave.

    a subjective feeling...but all about objects and abstract ideas and feelings of concrete hearts of concrete human beings.... a lovely and realistic understanding...
