Love's not just blind


What is it that makes me cry
When I'm happy as can be
What is it that makes me want to die
When there's a life ahead of me

What's that feeling of hurt
though I bask in sunshine
What's that fear that lurks
Amidst the party and the wine

What happened to my hunger
I can't eat a morsel
Why can't I even drink water
Despite the thirst.

What is it that fills my heart
With a feeling of pride
Why do I feel dizzy
Like a joy ride

What about my friends
Ones that came calling
And my foes
Those slandering

What is wrong with me
Can't I see
That I'm bound to stumble
Where I'm going to be

I ceased to care for all else
The moment I saw you
And I realized that love's not just blind
It's makes one stupid too.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
