“You are the void behind every eye”

Perhaps as human beings we can best be defined as creatures of affection. . . since the bonding instinct is so intrinsic. But consider where each love, attachment and connection originates: touch, sound, language and other means of contact are important, it's true, but the most fundamental, primal and emblematic of all - albeit a scarce commodity at times, even in intimate relations! - is probably. . . simple eye contact.

Love's Origin

Simon Rees

You are the void behind every eye
that is ceaselessly receptive
to linking with other like voids, and opening,
    when any two glances meet,
a space of boundless contact, the bond
like that between mothers and babes
which gives each the knowledge they both exist
     through mutual recognition.
