the blind spot


interminable
as an endless circle
of coiled nucleic acid strand
without a protein coat
to hide in

so here you are:
i’m naked
like the moon,
causing the tides of your moods,
falling behind
the thick mesh of clouds
and reappearing
as a sliver
after total destruction
of another menstrual lifecycle

and i’ve noticed
you don’t see the moon unless you’re looking for it
or sleeping with your face under the open sky

its coming and going
passes the world silently by

that’s why my whole life
has been about finding
the blind spot
in the lover’s eyes.

  1. This is a beautiful poem.
    “finding the blind spot
    in the lover’s eyes.”

  2. eh? so cool and sensual..

  3. ‘the tides of your moods’ is a nice metaphor. i like how you relate science to love and vice versa.

  4. I really like the way this poem flows. great ending stanza!

  5. This is oddly beautiful- not in a bad way, just in unusual way. It’s unique, and I really really like it.

    “that’s why my whole life
    has been about finding
    the blind spot
    in the lover’s eyes.”

    favorite line. beautiful.

  6. nice, I love the fact that you’ve put science and love in the same poem…

  7. This one is intense. I never thought about a “blind spot” in lover’s eyes before! I adore the moon so I am always searching for it (even when it’s not visible) but you are correct. Some people miss it altogether because they do not bother to search for it. Some people, even when they see it, do not recognize it for the beauty it is. Hmmmm. . .how metaphorical! xo

  8. Some eyes don’t have blind spots;
    some lovers don’t need them.

  9. Great poem!! And from this i guess you took biology as a subject??
