    Dear friend, I beg to differ from your views.........A partner/mate/companion is not be viewed from the physical sense and material and worldly utility point of view. Every man however he is handicapped or in that case woman is equally enjoyable and worth the company and life as anybody else.... So I am first of all with all immaturity and indignation record my protest.......so the lines shall be read like this: : : : : hope you tolerate my interruption...........as only a dear friend..........i am penning the following........

    He feels her pulsating heart
    through his blind eyes
    and flooding delight
    trickles down his lashes
    he discovers new visions
    deep inside his mansions
    slowly he comes alive
    relishing the sight stemming within.......... (Report) Reply

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
