Blinded by Love

Image Source: Magpie Tales


You were not the first to climb in bed with me
But I want you to be the last 
The men who came before you 
All they wanted was my body

None wanted my darkness apart from you
Smoke and mirrors all around us 
I can't see, I can only feel 
Yes, what I feel for you is true 

Is this what love feels like?
A mirage that I have only seen from afar
Yet you are as real as can be 
As real as the scars on my body 

As the smoke drifts away
I half expect you to disappear
But you are always here, my Love
Your fingertips ablaze on my skin

Now that I know what love finally feels like
I can open my eyes and take in its beauty
Without fear or contempt 
Without fear of being judged

Your eyes may not see me
They call you blind
But your heart sees right into my soul
And for me, that's all that matters

  7. I love the thought that only one that can see the scars and darkness can become the prince.. though I have a feeling that it can be sinister as well...

    1. I guess when it comes to love, it's a risk that we have to be willing to make :) Thank you!
