I cannot live with You


I cannot live with You – 

It would be Life – 

And Life is over there – 

Behind the Shelf


The Sexton keeps the Key to – 

Putting up

Our Life – His Porcelain – 

Like a Cup – 


Discarded of the Housewife – 

Quaint – or Broke – 

A newer Sevres pleases – 

Old Ones crack – 


I could not die – with You – 

For One must wait

To shut the Other's Gaze down – 

You – could not – 


And I – could I stand by

And see You – freeze – 

Without my Right of Frost – 

Death's privilege?


Nor could I rise – with You – 

Because Your Face

Would put out Jesus' – 

That New Grace


Glow plain – and foreign

On my homesick Eye – 

Except that You than He

Shone closer by – 


They'd judge Us – How – 

For You – served Heaven – You know,

Or sought to – 

I could not – 


Because You saturated Sight – 

And I had no more Eyes

For sordid excellence

As Paradise


And were You lost, I would be – 

Though My Name

Rang loudest

On the Heavenly fame – 


And were You – saved – 

And I – condemned to be

Where You were not – 

That self – were Hell to Me – 


So We must meet apart – 

You there – I – here – 

With just the Door ajar

That Oceans are – and Prayer – 

And that White Sustenance – 

Despair –
