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.

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

  • Excel­lent one Mahen­dra ! 🙂

    Rahul: If you leave me your con­tact details when fill­ing up the com­ment form, I can sure­ly share my email address. Thanks for the appre­ci­a­tion; it is my read­ers and com­menters who make the blog inter­est­ing!

    Mad­huri: How piquant! Yes, human cog­ni­tion is fas­ci­nat­ing indeed.

    BG: //My mom has been gone for over 26 years and I can still remem­ber the fresh and out­doorsy smell of her hair.//
    That was very touch­ing indeed. Thanks for shar­ing. It is quite amaz­ing how even after all these years you have these mem­o­ries…

  • 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… 🙂
