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.
