Magnetism

 

Verbose inclinations

Love discards

Palm to palm

Bound in heat

Thoughts unravelled

Heard unspoken

All is seen

Independent of sight

Drawing back

Lightest touch

Corporeal lure

Soul manifested

Breath held

Paused in release

Motionless, I crawl

Into your trembles

    I held my breath as I read this. I didn’t realise I was until I finished reading and started feeling dizzy. Your words are mesmerizing. x

    This poem speaks to me on so many levels, it is contradictory dualism, thought provoking, reflective and well crafted. Attraction, the polar pull of that which draws things together. Physical steel to magnetic cores, ethereal souls to the core of people.

    “Verbose inclinations
    Love discards
    Palm to palm
    Bound in heat
    Thoughts unravelled”

    A tendency for words to be used for all the wrong reasons. Over complicated, a suggestion of intellectual prowess perhaps, a inclination to overuse. Love is the complexity of simplicity encapsulated. Love strips you, forces the core to the surface, refutes decoration for purity. I love the way you convey that.

    Palm to palm, connection, the flow, unbreakable bond.

    “Heard unspoken
    All is seen
    Independent of sight
    Drawing back
    Lightest touch”

    Intimacy, love shared between two people. Contradictory lines of beautiful exploration. A perception of what is true independent of the expected stimulus. Love that…

    “Corporeal lure
    Soul manifested
    Breath held
    Paused in release
    Motionless, I crawl
    Into your trembles”

    The stasis of a fall, the pause of release. I adore the last two lines…

    Personal throughout, a beautiful poem.
