love is not blind
April 7, 2015
love is not blind at all.
Au contraire: when it enters, it heightens Sight,
Love illuminates the good you see in the one before you,
In the One you choose to trust and lose yourself into.
No, you don’t neglect their shortcomings.
Everyday is sunday and
Believing in lover’s ability to manifest himself into their Good becomes your religion.
So, don’t beat yourself up when their self-doubt attacks your fort.
Don’t cry when you loved and they loved and something fell short.
That’s on him, your best friend, in a moment, a stranger.
That’s his end of this splintery stick, laced with promise he chose not to bet on.
