Blind Love…

I can hear what you say
I sense we’re in a bind
I can touch what you say
So what if I’m blind?

I understand you
Better than most others
Engulfed in your hair
Smelling the flowers

The perfume of your hair
Lifts me out of despair
The darkness everywhere
Asks me, do I dare?

Am I fit to be your lover?
Blind, willing to bend lower
This is what tears me apart
Our love, will it have a start?

In pursuit of a dream
Hoping you will understand
About to spill over the brim
My shaky conscience; it can’t stand

  • You are so sensitive, Mahendra….
    Women fall for words, not looks, so the blind man has far the better chance than the dumb one.

  • How about intelligent, sighted and sensitive men Rambodoc? Women deserve better than dumb or blind.

  • Very Nice Mahendra. This is why human cognition is such an amazing gift.
    If poetry and music were not created, we would be left only with war.

    Lifts me out of despair”

    My mom has been gone for over 26 years and I can still remember the fresh and outdoorsy smell of her hair.

  • Mahendra, I can’t believe I’m only just now learning you write poetry, after almost a month has passed since you posted this.

    You write tender, lovely verses, with subtle rhyme.

  • That was lovely… 🙂
