Old tired eyes, caught out and clearly blinded,
Misguided and dumbfounded by loves light.
Which burns you to your very core, reminded
Perhaps of another lover in the night
Lost well before this new found dream was met,
Who now stands almost welded to your arms.
Perhaps to smother all their past regret,
Or warm within their new found lovers charms.

Beauty beheld as beauty should be held
In blind eyes with fresh faith more blinding still.
All rhyme and reason with good senses shelved
The moment clasped by each with weakened will.
Yet momentary lapses all soon fade
Decisions cast found lacking by clear mind.
Casting doubts upon each sworn promise made
Proves lovers leaps should not be taken blind.

So true-no leap should be taken blind, and most especially a lovers' leap. Thank you for sharing this with us, writer51!

Words to remember ... at least till you are in your lover's arms and your mind goes blank ...

Good job, I like it very muchly.

They say that love is blind, yet you should look before you leap, I was trying to understand how to do the latter while under the influence of the former.

Thank you RainbowGirl and Nochtdraco for your comments.

Welcome to the forum! I've leapt several times - all of them blindly. That's why I stay away from that particular edge - even when there's an enticing 'someone' on the other side.

Writer51- I guess we've all been there. I don't quite know if it is possible to do the latter while under the influence of the former. I've never experienced it! Maybe I'm just a weakling too! Very good!

Your words linger with me still
I know I must halt my leap
shall I forever remain alone
holding no one as I sleep.

As I said to someone recently, the leap is the easy part it’s surviving the thud when you come back down to earth that’s the killer.

If I could hug you now I would.
Hang on………………………HUG
