Infatuation!

04 Nov

They were drawn together by a remarkable twist of fate.
A friendship borne out of a mist, promising bliss
Cupid hovered around, his bow and arrow poised
Waiting to commence a lifelong relationship
But out of nowhere, a stumbling block arose.
What started out as a mere pebble became a rumbling mountain.
A force greater than them both shook our fragile foundation
And thrust them apart a million miles away.
What could have been a prelude to love became mere indifference And both were left to salvage whatever remained.
The bond had been broken Strangers again did they become
Both swore that the other had meant nothing.
Cupid sagged his shoulders in disappointment
At the loss of such a perfect match.
The sisters of fate bowed their heads in shame as though the situation was not inevitable.
Only one, our sister Hope,
Sees a glimmer of light at the end of this long dark tunnel
Into which they have been thrust.
………………………………………………….

Oh, how wondrous this feeling is
One minute, soaring through the clouds
Then another, free falling to the depths
Yet only a shadow of the real thing.
A fleeting image of things not yet come.
Its force as strong as a tumultuous storm
It holds its captives spell bound
As they wade through its insecure waters
Shadows of the deep eagerly wait to capture their prey
A mighty obsession it turns out to be
A quest for true love not yet within reach.
An infatuation no less
Engaging the most unsuspecting personage.
