Blind To What's In Store - Poem by Nicole D'Settemi

He is my forever blind date
Eternally so
I can't touch him
But, can only feel it
I am overwhelmed by miracles
But, also by malevolence
And, nobody is winning this battle
Least of all me
I feel the love surrounding me
But, it's quickly suffocated by hate
And, it goes from a blind date
To a nightmarish dance with fate
To a shove toward a certain death gate
But not heaven
Is this hell?
But then you look at me with those eyes
God, it's so hard to tell!
How did I find myself
Glued to this dance
Bound to something
Huge, enhanced
A power, powers, I don't even understand
And, I am terrified…
Is it even a man?
Who I kneel to, or what is his plan?
I thought magic found me
But, perhaps it's a curse
As the particles of malice
Circle and dance around me
They continue to disperse
I am a foolish girl
When it comes to love
Never gave up
Never pulled that plug
But, I am so petrified
I don't know what to do
Don't know how the hell
I'm supposed to keep loving you.

Are you even real?
That's the battle. The real battle within.

    Another scorching love poem, wrought with realistic conflicts and questions about attachment and the fear of attachment and desire. (Report)Reply

    Sometimes we give too much to that which is conflicted like a strange challenge, struggle for our minds or souls- so that we think we will feel some great conquest and victory when it all works out, but usually these challenges build more challenges. The love meant well though!

    Particularly when the relationship was conflicted from the beginning - you never know what your saying or who, but that's at face-value. The deeper part is more about something mystic and unreal which came with this spiritual connection.
