Navigator

As evening fell
I found myself
to be a two-way mirror
to your eyes,
your deep and well-spring coloured eyes
fathomless
as your questioning words.

It is something that
I chose to be,
this map,
this undiscovered country,
the roads within me
too well trod
by feet that led away.

But you,
you with your compass-heart
who quotes mythology with the damned,
it seems you recognize the language
spoken by my wind-blown veil
it seems to me
my murky depths
to you an uncharted river be
to you a glyph’s no mystery
to you i am a geography.
