An undeniable attraction

lost in seductive glances

drawing me to distraction

by the sympathizing expanses

of her alluring eyes.

Like a magnet fetching

affinity for her lies,

transformed denials stretching

to dismissals of reasons why:

she loathes me,

she recants her love,

she ignores my plea.

I'm a discarded glove

found unfashionably ugly;

"My desire . . . a repulsion", she says smugly.
