Behind the blood-stained curtains of Love there are fields of flowers where the lovers wander. While the mind sees only boundaries Love knows the secret way there. While the mind smells profit and quicklysetsupshop Love sees untold of treasures far beyond. Lovers trust in the wealth of their hearts while the all-knowing mind sees only thorns ahead.
To wander in the fields of flowers pull the thorns from your heart.
