For someone I know.

I look in your eyes and see nothing,

But you look in mine and see the world

For your taking.

My life is unfurled,

But yours is waiting.

I look in your eyes and see nothing.

 

If you think I have jewels,

And money; no rules––

If, tomorrow,

I look in your eyes and see nothing:

I will cast you aside without blinking,

And without a trace of sorrow.

 

But if, when we meet,

I look in your eyes and see a man––

Then I will weep

But be yours to the end.

 

But as of today?

I look in your eyes and see nothing.
