I was thinking today, how I wish I was blind,
Not see your deceit, then I wouldn’t mind.


Wouldn’t it be nice, if I couldn’t hear,
Ignoring your lies, then I’d want you near.

How pleasant my life, if I couldn’t touch.
False caresses of love wouldn’t bother so much.

Imagine my life, if I couldn’t smell,
Your actions so rotten, not to mind those as well.

Oh would that I could lose my sense of taste,
Craving your words, even though poison laced.

Come to think, I wish that I could lose my mind.
That would make it so easy to love you, I’d find.
