Blind is a poem written by Tahys Rodriguez. Tahys is a theatre maker and poet based in Brighton. She aims to create work that people can relate to, as words and storytelling are the most human experience.


Cigarettes and regrets

Our nicotine laced love

Tucked away from the outside world

Our love hangs in the balance like your shitty blind

The light tumbles through

Making for a picturesque moment

But not the moment we need

Sleep is calling but the sun pierces through

You put up a towel in a haphazard attempt to block out the sun

For a moment it works

The cinematographer’s dream

When the light is warm and fuzzy

Where you could just reach out your hand and grab it

Where it hangs on your eyelashes like tears

The making of every romantic scene

It’s ephemeral

The towel crashes down

The hazy light disappears

The moment is gone

The reality of being tired and too warm dawns

Maybe we’re like the makeshift curtain

Only fleetingly functioning before it’s fucked
