When Eyes Open

When Eyes Open
Form: Ivorian Sonnet 94

I’m living, breathing with my senses dead
So lost in fear I’ve lost myself instead
A nobody; invisible to eyes
Now that love isn’t blind and I can see
Your words of love were just a sly disguise
The sweet bait in a narcissistic trap
And for far too long you had me deceived
Indeed you had me there under your wrap
Not seeing truth of what should be believed
In all that time I was taking your crap
While in your lies my esteem was relieved
But did you think I would not recognise
There was a better place for me to be
When being with you can only bring dread
