I don’t use my eyes when I look at people because if I do, I’ll end up hurting and misunderstanding them, it will make them lonely, and I don’t want that to happen. Using our eyes more than our hearts is the same as deceiving ourselves. We all know that the body is ephemeral and ever-changing, why focus on it? One day that person will lose his smooth skin and voluptuous muscles and if they were the reason that you loved him then it follows that sooner or later you’ll choose to go away.
People are more than just bodies; we are much more than our façade.
We are burning souls waiting for someone to embrace the heat, not just the fire.
