Love is blind to blemishes and faults.
“She had a strange feeling in the pit of her stomach, like when you’re swimming and you want to put your feet down on something solid, but the water’s deeper than you think and there’s nothing there”― Julia Gregson, East of the Sun

And, after all, what is a lie? ‘Tis but the truth in masquerade.Lord Byron.

THE WHISTLE OF A TRAINThere’s something most exciting in the whistle of a train;It’s sighted in the distance and comes panting through the rain.
Source: “My heart is warm with the friends I make, And better friends I’ll not be knowing, Yet there isn’t a train I wouldn’t take, No matter where it’s going.” ― Edna St. Vincent Millay, The Selected Poetry | THE OLD PROVERBIAL RECOVERY
I’m an old woman now and nature is cruel-Tis her jest to make old age look like a fool.The body is crumbled, grace and vigor depart,There is now a stone where I once had a heart,But inside this old carcass, a young girl still dwells,And now and again my battered heart swells,I remember the joy, I remember the pain,And I’m loving and living life over again.I think of the years all too few- gone too fast.
True genius sees with the eyes of a child and thinks with the brain of a genie.Puzant Kevork Thomajan
