I want to be blind...

I want to to be blind

to be able to see again

I am trying to be blind,

to fade the shades of meaning

I am ashamed, if I see you in my mind

as anything but human

I am fighting the battle within,

failing some days, winning some moments

I am angry, at that which shaded my sight,

without my permission

I am rubbing them away, I promise

As I see them, reflected in your eyes

I embrace you now, even though I am still perfectly sighted,

if you so incline, do embrace my impaired vision

So we may both walk hand in hand,

and help each other see and

someday maybe we both shall go blind.
