I see you I see myself
I love you
as I love myself.
I see you I see an object
to be used
for my pleasure and need.
I see You I see God
I love You
as He loves You.

Inspired by Martin Buber’s I and Thou
Lullaby | Startled
This poem was inspired by Martin Buber’s I and Thou describing the 3 stages of relationships. This is the Kira’s cliff notes,
a brief synopsis on the subject in haiku.
“When two people relate to each other authentically and humanly, God is the electricity that surges between them.”
― Martin Buber
Well written! I enjoyed the shifts in perspective with each stanza.
