    Note: I got the title for this poem from a possible album name for a band called Dark Tranquillity. It has inspired this.

    “Blind at Heart”

    The trials of a heartless monster
    Are yours to bear
    If a little worse for wear

    Inside me, is a raging nucleus ignorant of the price
    Of a self-serving paradise
    Rife with pain and emotional sacrifice

    D you trip a blind man
    Laughing as he falls to the ground?
    Or do you offer a hand instead?
    A comforting presence
    For a lost and wounded
    enemy to himself

    In my dreams I hold up my own soul
    To the naked eye
    I only see loathing
    And wonder why
    I am blind at heart
