I used to sit right here
and stare.
I prayed
he would turn my way
and smile.
We would fall in love.
I told you my fantasies.
I told you my dreams.
You just listened
to this silly girl
as she spun her tales.
Never once
did he pay me any mind.
When he finally turned my way,
he looked right through me.
Still I dreamed of romance.
I wanted something real.
It wasn’t until
I released the dream,
and saw you there
in front of me
that I finally realised
all this time
it was me who was blind.

Prompt: Blind
