Infatuation and Angels

Infatuation and Angels

A Poem by John Alexander McFadyen

Romantic hearts attract.


Infatuation and Angels

It is impossible to explain,

this yearning,

this attraction.

Fatal indeed it may become.

All I know is it has mattered

to us both,

for reasons I guess

neither of us knows,

and we may never know.

Perhaps tis a gap we seek to fill,

an idealised image we need to find

in another.

Yes we have touched one another

and it has felt loving,

intoxicatingly wonderful

in fact,

as I absorb all that is you,

or at least the you,

you show me from behind

that delicate 'virgin's' veil.

Yes, of course it has meaning

but surely it is simply

an elaborate fantasy

we have created.

If so, forgive me my sins.

This indeed says so much.... the wonder, the curiosity, the guilt, sumple and effective imagery!

Well, have a long and complicated story and started it as an autobiography on Bebo but got writer's block/memory fogging. People liked it though and kept asking for the next chapter! fools.. more..
