Art by Eden Taff
A poetry series on how relationships on social media outlets are romanticized. People are blinded and oblivious to the fact that relationships and being in a relationship is not all candy hearts and teddy bears. Sometimes it's bruises and broken windows.
I see your dark brown eyes,
Cryptic and beautiful,
Stimulating the iris of my eye.
Your long and thick raven hair,
As majestic as a black lion's mane.
It embraces me, encloses on me.
Those crimson lips,
Intoxicating and pernicious.
Leaves a tint of your soul.
Still my eyes swim in this darkness,
My macula is inoperative.
