I Heard But Couldn’t See

I heard but couldn’t see



distorted eyes

a loss of vision

in living life

my flawed decision

a deception

 a perception


I heard but couldn’t see

Three times

the clock chimed,




tick tock – mind blocked

tick tock – unlock

And then I saw

eyes can shift

with temerity

into clarity

from the surreal

to reality

by making a change
