Blind Eyes Can’t See

I am not blind

Yet I do not see

You speak

I listen

But so much is lost

In the absence of my sight

Only when you walk away

Do I realize what I missed

Your eyes showing so much emotion

Love, desire, compassion

 

From your eyes I seem disinterested

While that is not the case

I can’t help but think I’d feel the same way

If you didn’t see me

Didn’t even show the courtesy of looking through me

  1. There’s so much love in your words but at the same time there’s an indignant feeling. Well written 😊

    Do visit my blog to checkout some of my poems 😃

  2. That poem has so much meaning for me. It means so much to me because sometimes I feel like one of the most important person in my life doesn’t really show much interest in my words.
