With stone eye and brow

With stone eye and brow
you tell me you want more.
Together we’ve become less.
What you truly wish to express
is a desire to restore
what we’ve never held somehow.

What more to give than all?
What less to withhold than none?
With nothing left to reveal
no more tenderness to steal
it seems a decline has begun,
which no good intention can stall.

So go where you will.
See sights fresh and new
with warm watchful eyes.
And if a reflective mind tries
to pause on the one you once knew,
then know you want me still.
