About blind love that comes apparent after many years. The innocence of love and the resentment of previous relationships. -23rd May 2013.

Blind love.

Long lasting was my love
That played games
in the remnants of twilight.


It was innocence that blinded me.

Sincere was the smile
That you snatched
in the shadows of yesterday.


It was resentment that blinded you.

Nicely written, John.

there is a much larger story not being told here, but i'm sure that is for personal reasons. i think too often people dive head first into relationships with their own idealizations and it can leave them cold when they don't hold up. this piece gets that across beautifully and in so few words. well done.

This one seems quite sad to me... Almost a sad riddle. Am I reading it wrong?

Well written and it works with a very clever charm
