so lovingly


love

don’t look at me so lovingly.
In the soft shadow of your eyelashes
Moonlight looks like drowning
And I’ve to go a long way

The desert’s sand is burning, the blisters on my soles
flare up like cinders
This look of love may last or vanish
Who keeps burning in the desert of fidelity?
Your heart may bear in mind or may forget
don’t look at me so lovingly.
