From Instinct and Intuition Alone

I love…
…you with a feeling beyond thought and logic; apart from reason and common sense; above wisdom and below rationale. From instinct and intuition alone does my heart move toward you.

Brazilian lyricist and novelist Paulo Coelho
I think that perhaps
we always fall in love
the very first time we see
the person of our dreams,
even though, at the time,
reason may be telling
otherwise, and we may fight
against that instinct,
hoping against hope
that we won’t win,
until there comes a point
when we allow ourselves
to be vanquished by our feelings…
