I am blind to the world.
I am blind to the light.
I am blind to humankind,
With passion glowing bright.
There’s a darkness alive
Resentful and stubborn,
Wanting the light more
Than it could let borne.
Shying away in anonymity
Shunning away, away from pity,
Travels through lone corners
And lanes turned gritty-
It stays blind and unseeing,
Rude, scared and mulishly unfeeling.

N.B. Another piece of my talents that spewed onto a certain kind of paper while I was supposed to be working but was actually feeling sleepy! G.:)

    I just found your blog through IP's-i like the poetry. I write a litte myself and mostly it is exactly like what you describe-the poem sorta sits and gestates inside then tosses itself onto the page-i like this one a lot. Looking forward to reading more.

    We choose to be blind many times.. because what we see with open eyes is difficult to live with.

    Found your blog through Indi.
    Beautiful poem.
    I do believe we're all blind and we never 'see' as much as we try to.
    Really well written. 🙂


  16. A moving poem… with deep meanings.


  17. nice sonnet.
    yeah passion is some like that.
    but sometimes its the light which blinds. darkness is convenient.
