The Story of our Magnetism (with audio)

Deep inside the ordinary
matter of a day,
the rounded rock
dipped itself
down
by spinning
’round
a shift
too quickly.
The weights of the world
unfurled the sails of fate
<accidentally>
pointing us
in each other’s direction.
So our magnets aligned
inside
the sea of fields
locking
us into submission.
The pull of you
started growing
like an electronic energy
with a metallic attraction.
Our poles paths’ pushed
and
tilted
to one another’s
location.
My North
to your South
you became the field coil
toiling with my heart’s
static condition.
The percussion
of our resonance
danced into
magnetic madness
when we linked together.
I could have lived
forever
in our love’s destination.
I would have given
you every spark
in our atoms’ collision.
Just as I started
to settle into
our magnetism,
the Laws of Attraction
demanded
we pay them
for every single
transaction we transpired.
The fires of our connection
created a nuclear reaction
splitting the
Universe’s Natural Order.
That division would devastate
our fixed spaces.
The remnants of our lust
became dust within days
of us realizing
we would cause
innocent destruction.
What truth could we live in
with that kind of extinction
powering through every daily interaction?
What kind of foundation
can be built on a structure
that lacks loyalty and dedication?
We weren’t meant to align.
We weren’t destined to be together.
Our love was never
meant
to come to fruition.
And yet,
it seems,
that fate,
<mistakenly>
pointed us
in each other’s direction.
Deep inside the ordinary
matter of a day,
I sit in stillness
as the rounded rock
dips itself
down
by spinning
’round
each shift
quite efficiently.
I wait for the mistake
of a quickened pace
that
<accidentally>
places me inside
your line of demarcation.
Until that day,
I’ll keep drowning away
in the sea of fields
longing
for your magnetic connection.

    1. Thank you so much, Tom! I appreciate your comment. I had to learn how to add it to my work too–I use an app called Hi-Q. I paid for it since I use it so much ($2.99, I think). I record the poem, then email the mp3 file to myself. I save it to my computer and then upload it to the post that I use it on. I love reading, so if you ever want your work read, I’d be happy to help! Free of course, this is all just fun for me. 🙂

  1. Great share, as usually! While reading and listening, I immediately recalled when I use to hold both magnets and how they attract or repel, as they taught us “like poles repel; opposite poles attract.” I like the metaphor you used all over the poem, simply amazing! 😊

  2. Lovely poem.

    Sorry. I made a New Years resolution this year not to watch audios, videos and pod casts of any kind this year. I wasted so much time in the the past sorting out my computer, google account and any youtube stuff after opening them. I lost my patience often when it stuffed up my apple PC. It’s just for a year and I will decide if I try again. To be honest. I don’t feel as though I’m missing out. 🙂 I’m sure your audio reflects your creativeness and talent. 🙂 Please don’t be offended if I don’t watch them.

    I love your blog.

    1. No worries whatsoever! Just so you know, I don’t advertise for anything on my audio, it is just simply me reading the poem. It is to help enhance your enjoyment of my poetry and nothing more (should you ever press play and listen!) Thank you for loving my blog! I’m so happy to hear that. 🙂
