I have often heard it said that love is blind, but i could only want a love with my eyes wide open. Open to every ugly part of you, and every scar. But by the end, still have the same smile on my face as when I first saw you. Naive and open as I was in the beginning. I want our love to be blind with open eyes.

The author's comments:
This is about being open to a person's faults and still being able to feel that reckless, spontaneous feeling you get when you first fall in love.

Interesting. Keep it up. I see an a compelling thesis. Do a little research, especially in Shakespeare's plays. Your on to something. Something big. I can feel it.

write more! Ha there is a quote that says something like: Love is not blind. It merely enables one to see what other cannot.

True, right?

I have such strange thoughts.

This is a great article. You have done so well in illustrating the effect of love, which even when ugly, blinds the beholder. Well done! x
