“Still gaze,” by Khatira Mahdavi

angela pilgrim_kinky hair cantu butter wonders
We are standing at bay
with a curtain drawn across the sea
from here, the sunset is only half as beautiful as it could be 
and the moon has lost its grip on the waves
but I am still standing here 
drowning in your eyes
wholly enamoured by that gaze

 

these words by Khatira Mahdavi were inspired by the work of Angela Pilgrim
