I'D Rather Go Blind - Poem by JenOfPoetry METAPHORICALLY SPEAKING

I'd rather go blind than
To see you stand there looking
As if I was mental
For not wanting you to exit my heart

I'd rather go deaf
Than to hear the words
Of goodbye fall from your lips

I'd rather go numb
Than to feel the presence of you
Leave the air I breathe

I'd rather lose my sense taste and smell
Than to never again indulge in the nectar
Of your kisses which are enhanced by the
Natural essence of your physique

I'd rather lay dead
Than see you live with another
In happiness that should be ours

The situation ask that
This come to pass
Powers beyond what we can control
Have say in this valediction
So wanting rather than accepting
The demise of ecstasy
That has been fostered
Is relentlessly overwhelming

I'd rather go blind
Than to see the ghost of us
Pass by in memory.
