Seeing them at face value, the first question that tugs the mind is to wonder what their attraction to each other is?
You can’t help but look again and again.
How could such a delicate and pretty butterfly of a woman hang on to that hard-featured, unseemly moth of a man?
This becomes a perplexing puzzle that you seek to solve and till you take the time to sit and truly watch them, with the blinders taken off your eyes you will not see that;
The moth made the butterfly glow, her gentleness softened his spirit and the love he showered on her made him beautiful beyond his wings.
