Eyes shut

I know what a fool I am

telling the truth to oneself is unpleasant

but I’ve managed.

People say I am under your spell

that you are a snake not a yummy present

I can imagine.

You have bit me countless times

in my trustful, unprepared for attack

and leaving exposed.

But my ideas and your poison rhymes

and ignoring the sense I’ve come back

with my eyes closed.
