What I once found fulfilling
And had me melt like
Our cheesy comments,
Now feels so foreign and strange.
Do emotions just blind us completely?
Not in a way where everything seems dark
And you cannot see.
But in a way where there’s too much light
And you look the other way
Or end up closing your eyes.
As if these intense emotions are there
To amplify and hype up anything
That could be good into beautiful .
And once that light dims,
Your eyes adjust and start to see clearer.
And what once took your breath away,
Now, is extraordinarily ordinary.
