Your World


​Responding to this quote with a poem:

Look only at me 

as though I am the world 

and everything in it 

the fields and the forests 

deserts and oases 

rivers and seas 

and also the inky sky 

embracing the heavens 
Put me at the centre 

of your universe, and never 

take your gaze off me 

If you can love me like this, stay, 

else leave 

for what other road exists

but the one 

leading away from me
