Someone once said to me, “sweet things are best enjoyed when
you close your eyes”, citing that as one of the reasons why some
people close their eyes when they kiss; and this is also why people
enjoy sleep when they are having sweet dreams. It is the same
reason why some people close their eyes to everything when they
fall in love. They pay deaf ears to all the warnings, advice and red
The truth is, no matter how new your ride is or how smooth your
road is, it is senseless driving with your eyes closed. You risk
losing your life, not even a fool will do that.
You don’t need to close your eyes when you fall in love, that is the
time for you to be vigilant. You don’t close your eyes to the things
you doubt or have question marks about your partner, you don’t
pay deaf ears to the pieces of advice from your loved ones and
enemies, even if it goes against your relationship.
Many at times, what we call love is not really love. It is rather a
sickness and we need to be careful when we think we are in love.
Day in day out, people we meet on regular basis fall in love with
our looks, our smiles and before we can say Jack, they are gone
even before tears drop.
In tears is when you need a shoulder to hold on to, that time is
when you need them the most, not when in smiles. You need
someone who falls in love with your scars instead of your smiles,
such a person won’t leave and the best way to be sure you have
such a person is to open your eyes, watch their actions and not let
their words put you to sleep. You might be surprised to wake up to
empty arms. It hurts to know you can’t have them in your arms yet
they have stolen your heart. The invisible tenant of the heart is
what I call them. You feel their presence yet they are missing in
Anyone who falls in love with your scars, sees you beautiful every
day. Days may fade away; your beauty will fade away but their
love for you continues. When you face challenges, they look for
ways and means to keep the union. Unlike those who fall in love
with your smiles, they look for reasons to leave, and give excuses
why they can’t stay. They can’t stand challenges. To them, love is
only about romance and once you face challenges in your
relationship, romance disappears, you need a caring partner to be
able to bring that back.
Fall in love with someone who is the reason for your smiles, not
someone who looks for smiles in your face to fall in love with you.
The one who is behind your smiles cares about you more than you
do, understands you, is forgiving and finds no joy living without
you. But the one who falls in love with your smiles is interested in
what he or she is getting and once their expectations are not met,
you become replaceable.
