Love is blind thank goodness


Love is blind thank goodness
The drumbeats of our hearts
Gladly beat in unison
Our fingers were entwined
Insisting that love's grip
Held fast until the thread
Of a mass of voices
Sang in both our minds

We had both been conquered
Trapped in a web of love
All power to Cupid's bow
People gone from our sight
We spin so happily
In our special orbit
Thinking of each other
And of nobody else

  1. Love is so beautiful - yet a dance that shuts the world outside.

  3. Not wishing to be the voice of doom but i wonder if love blindness is always good...and maybe i sense a hint of that in your parting lines? or am just cynical...it is wonderful to be absorbed and enraptured in the love of another but at some point you have to look up and look at them...perhaps rose tinted glasses are a happy medium...or i am just cold and heartless!

  8. Your title made me laugh so very hard. Because it's true, because it can be both a good and a bad thing--the blindness of love...

  9. LOL, how apt your words are at this particular moment, Robin. I am thinking of two people with serious disabilities, who have great challenges just living in this world, and who have found each other. All the naysayers are quick to joke about how "this wont last long".........but some of us see the sweetness in the support and comfort - and understanding - they bring each other, and hold our peace.

  12. Yes, love can be blind and, at times, we can be grateful for that. But, if it blinds us to all the other love that surrounds us, is that a good thing?

  15. Haha, yes I do think it can be a very good thing indeed that love is sometimes blind! How else would we ever stand one another for as long as we manage to? ;-)
