When you start to know someone, all their physical characteristics start to disappear. You begin to dwell in their energy, recognize the scent of their skin. You see only the essence of the person, not the shell. That’s why you can’t fall in love with beauty. You can lust after it, be infatuated by it, want to own it. You can love it with your eyes and your body but not your heart. And that’s why, when you really connect with a person’s inner self, any physical imperfections disappear, become irrelevant.

Do more writing,

And stop fighting

With the need for perfection;

Or fear of rejection.

Words are what you have always been.

There comes a man

Who will love you through all:

Failure, success, big and small,

Let him.

Don’t dwell so much on what you’ve seen.

Look to where

Your feet will tread,

And stop tormenting yourself

With future’s dread.
