Blind Sided

Love confuses the senses
It tricks us into seeing what’s not there
We see what we want to see
Someone you love, who loves you back
In equal measure
Someone as happy, content, faithful
As you are
But love blinds us
It blinds us to the truth
It fails to register
All the tell tale signs
Of sadness, discontent and infidelity
Until it’s too late

Falling in love blinds you to the truth about relationships, so that you can be coasting along and failing to register the growing discontent, duplicity, even deceit, of your partner.
