Attraction

DSC04810Laws of attraction

Whimsical, arbitrary

Causing distraction

In a life ordinary

Wreaking havoc profound

In a tumultuous mind

Emotions raising a sound

While going through the grind

I was caught unaware

Thrown in a cataclysm

Obsession threatening to declare

A war within my heart’s realm

Oblivious of circumstance

Mindless of time and place

Attraction I felt simply by chance

Leaving me a million questions to face

Suspended in mid-air did I feel

With choices difficult lying ahead

As I tried to quieten the zeal

Of a passion I thought was long dead

**

I was tempted to follow my heart

And get instant gratification

I knew that this was not smart

I would face lasting ramifications

I steered myself away

With a steely resolve

Fervently while I did pray

From temptation to be absolved

Bent but not broken

I sprang back again

Leaving hidden, unspoken

A dull residual pain

This attraction transient

My vulnerability revealed

I learnt my heart’s subservient

To temptations concealed.
