Color Blind

Color Blind

A Poem by IamDale

" I was blinded by your lies"

My first crush, my first shot at love.
I thought you were the one.
You made me feel like the greatest.
You captured my heart from the start.

I thought all was well,
Us; at the end.
But you changed, your words,
Different ; day after day.

I thought it was age.
We were too young to be serious.
I came with you,
I stayed in happiness and troubles.

I thought this could work.
I thought we were already one.
But, suddenly someone came.
My heart shattered; bleeding.

But it's not 100% your fault,
There was never You and I.
It was just me, hoping that one day,
It will be what I envisioned us to be.

I was so foolish to think that this could work.
Why did I commit to this love?
This love only a dream,
Never a reality.

You were never ideal,
I just convinced myself you were.
But right at the end, I held on.
I was too smart to give you a chance.

This dream, this crazy journey.
It begun because of your white lies.
All your lies, they made me feel right.
I was never seeing the truth.
I went color blind.

Author's Note

This is not coming from a personal experience.
Just one of love's curses and downfalls.

A nice poem .
I like the lines:
This dream, this crazy journey.
It begun because of your white lies.

'It was just me' seems to mark a pivotal change in the poem from sadness to reflectiveness. And then in the final verse the poem achieves a bitter realisation of how things all too often go as we convince ourselves that things are other than how they actually are, sadly.

This kind of honesty is what keeps relationships alive, sometimes. The universality of this experience is engaging, and you deal with it well. Good writing.

Nice title, very fitting for the story of feelings in this write, describing true feelings well.

When its real you invest yourself in your work. When its imaginary or hearsay (another's real) it doesn't have the same bite and imperatives it ccould have had. This has minor flaws - language usage, and to be expected. BUT the flow is good, content viable. It is complete and relevant.
