Deaf As Well

…more than anything makes one sure of their feelings. Even with uncertainty about being loved in return, a heart filled with adoration renders its owner unable to hear encouragement or advice about the subject of their love. Love is not only blind, but it’s deaf as well.

From “An English Woman’s Love Letters” by Laurence Housman
When I think of you
I never question
whether what I think
would be true or false
in the eyes of others.
All that concerns you
seems to go on a different place
where evidence
has no meaning or existence…
