On Distractions - Poem by Taylor Roberts

In the world of black and white,
to which I find myself within,
enjoyment is but a distraction,
pleasure its by-product.

And I fear to say, that I long for
colour, if I've ever known it, yet
when I aim to see, I am blinded,
in brutal pain, all that's found is
meaningless chaos.

Topic(s) of this poem: blindness, chaos, distraction, joy, pleasure, reflection, symbolism

    loved the whole poem especially these wonderful unique lines
