Self-Induced Ignorance is the Best Kind of Bliss

scream  soft

smile bright

blind yourself with loving light

bask and sway for one more day

to hold the scream in tight

 

blooming flowers

choking weeds

blind the world with loving deeds

be the sun once day’s begun

but hide the growing needs

 

blissful day

haunting night

try your best to win the fight

you think at dawn the hurt is gone

but still it waits to bite
