Delighted by Choice ©

I am delighted to see you

with these two eyes that can’t take a lie.

I am surprised by what I am seeing

but that won’t make me fall apart.

The delight comes from discovering,

with these two eyes that can’t take a lie,

that I rather be surprised by horror

and walk away with my pride

than finding out that I was blind

by choice and by your tiring lies.

I am delighted.

Oh, yes I am!

And my heart won’t be broken

and neither will be my mind;

because you and what I have found

have already disappeared

like the ‘nothing’ that you are.
