I write what I feel…

Blindfold of Lies




He concocted a blindfold of lies

A fabricated web of art

Quite superfluous at the time

‘Cos there are none so blind

As those who will not see

And the wearer was me

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx

  1. Trouble is, what you don’t see, you feel deeply, Denise. I hope the pain lessens soon


  2. Maybe you didn’t see what you knew would be painful.


  3. Living well is the best “revenge.” :mrgreen:


  4. As long as we don’t blindfold ourselves from the truth, we eventually see the light! Again, as usual, thought-provoking. Nice post.


  5. The consolation is that lies have a way of catching up from behind and biting one in the tail! Sooner or later …


  6. A hard lesson that many of us learn, get over and get happy again. May Karma find him. 🙂


  7. it becomes easy to see what we want…and feel like such a fool after…sorry you fell prey…


  8. It’s easy to fall victim and see what we want to see Denise, so don’t feel too bad, it happens to us all from time to time; you eventually saw the light and that’s what matters. God Bless.


  9. I think we are all blind from time to time


  10. Very clever poem adeeyoyo – well done.


  11. Thanks, Gabe. Is that a kookaburra? I love him!!!


  12. ‘Cos there are none so blind

    As those who will not see’ – so true. I know so many people who are guilty of this. I have been guilty of this myself. It is always good when that light comes back on!


  13. Yes, I was so blind, I wouldn’t/couldn’t see! I can’t believe it now, lol!
