Once upon a time the Greek God, Zeus had a lover named Semele. She asked to see him not disguised but in his true form, in all his glory. He tried to talk her out of it, but she insisted. When she opened her eyes to see him her body was consumed in flames.
Yeah- he was just that hot.
Sometimes when I look at men I have to turn away as if it hurts my eyes to see them... when they are beautiful and laughing and the essence of life. They can be too much I tell ya.
