Blind To What's In Store - Poem by Nicole D'Settemi
He is my forever blind date
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
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.
