Compared to Your Eyes









Compared to your eyes my eyes are sightless,
Your soul, an impenetrable gloom,
In your dark gaze a subtle lie,
Hiding you always a fine shroud… 

Closed and remote is your heart to me,
Tied forever to you yet a stranger still
With insane pleasure I worship you
I love you and yet not know you.

Closed and remote is your heart to me,
Compared to your eyes my eyes are sightless,
Hiding you always a fine shroud,
Who are you? Who? — I shall never know…
