Care Contract iiPosted: December 19, 2015
a stranger sees beauty which familiarity often leaves undiscovered. but living in such a big city, it made no sense that I should deceive myself in thinking she hadn’t had many other lovers. still, she was the most beautiful and inventive like Hedy Lamarr; with no visible emotional scars in her eyes or intellect. and she brought out the best in me – thus no expletives in my spread spectrum.
and how could I not love
when nothing could armour me against her charm
and she was all I could think about.
because if it be true that madness is always at the door of the mind
then mine was wide open to a love so blind.
so when it failed we were quick to find
that the idea of us had been more damaging than our deeds
and we easily agreed to just leave our past behind.
besides, we figured of civilisation too, it will be said:
‘they loved humanity better than they understood it’.
