Blind To Everything - Poem by One Tap

The most tropical of beauty besieges all directions
Luxury imbedded
As if pearls in oceans
A paradise of which I am a guest
To which I request
The severity of neglect
A corner so dark and wet
That it be made my bed
Alone with misery and regret
May I sit alone
Dark and cold
Without love
Without laughter
Without sun
Without the youth
Without the old
May I wish to have all that I already possess?
Or better yet
To cure the blindness
That darkens happiness

    Being content of oneself and insensitive to others passion will make as blind not able to see the beauty of humanity and nature! Live like human, and the world will become compassionate to let you see what life is really made for! Liked it, highest mark. (Report) Reply
