Nur Meiyati


When the Men Was Blinded


The man was blinded
By the art of weeping and pleading
Of the rose garden princess
She was equipped with language proficiency
And a talent to become an actress of real life
Her melancholy face and tone was a great appeal to men
The man was willing to sacrifice
His family who truly loved him
He had a strong passion to be a hero for the princess
And never thought that his family at home also needed a hero
Although they never begged
They were strong and never cried
Still they needed a hero
They did not drop their tears
But it does not mean they could not be sad
If they got mad and lost their head
Doing a not a smart thing to protect their possession
When the man chose to chase his dream to rescue the princess
That's because they could not pretend
They knew only two colours: black and white

Oh, Princess
What kind of charms did you have that had made the man weak?
What kind of magical words did you spell that had blinded the man?
