A Dark Attraction

Contributed by Aurelia on Thursday, 21st January 2021 @ 01:50:53 PM in AEST
Topic: StoryPoetry

A dark attraction
You want me to prove something to you
Like I have got something to prove
You want me to chase you
Be fascinated by you
Until I am under your thumb
And then what

And maybe I feel comfortable
Chasing after someone
For their approval
Their scraps of attention
Begging out in the cold
You pull me in
In the way
I am addicted
To never having
What I need

And maybe we had an arrangement once
Where you did not seem to notice
That I kept you
In my orbit
And you were the one
Begging for me

Maybe we played each other
But I had the last laugh
Because when you left her for me
I finally had to play my card
That I never really wanted to have you
I just wanted you to want me
So I knew
I could be wanted

I finished my song
But to you
It was an incomplete tune
Unfinished business
A longer story than we had time for

So now you are here
Ten years later
Messages left on read
Sniffing around
My wedding pictures
To see if I still think
I made the right choice

The fact that you are here
Trying to get my attention
To finish your song
Oh honey, of course I did
