Blind Eyes Can’t See

I am blind, yet I do not 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
