Blind

The rain was falling,

But I saw sunshine and clear skies.

The lightning split the sky,

But I saw arching double rainbows.

The world was being destroyed by sorrow,

But I saw happiness and peace.

My heart was breaking within me over him,

But I felt joy and saw only you.

-------------------

I see it all now.

I see the reality of what was

No longer the reality I crafted with my own

Attempts to mask my pain.

I feel the rain,

I see the sorrow,

I feel the heartache.

-------------------

I was blind,

But now

I see.
