They were only to meet a one-time rendezvous; this man and woman
The man, miserable in his marriage but refused to leave
The woman, miserable in hers but had long ago decided to leave
Upon first sight, it became clear to both that their attraction was magnetic
One was the positive charge, the other was the negative but who was who?
It didn’t matter; the attraction was solid. It was natural and clicked
The emotions were real from the beginning; there was love at first sight
At that first meeting.
It wasn’t a one-time meeting. It became a full-blown affair.
Both thought the same, felt the same, believed the same, wanted the same
Personalities meshed beautifully; drawn to each other like two opposing magnets
Neither could separate without great effort. Both were madly in love…but….
Both also knew the risks despite the magnetism of the relationship
The days grew to weeks. The weeks grew to months. The months to years.
This affair managed to keep going; through her separation and divorce
But did he make that effort for her? Never.
The fear took over his heart, his mind, and his soul
All despite the power of the magnetism of the attraction he could not deny.
After five years, the woman finally decided that despite the attraction
She deserved far more than what she was receiving
She was free from her binds of torment but now was in even greater pain
The man she loved and adored refused to grant to her what she felt she deserved
The bonds of matrimony that both had long discussed
But the magnetism of their bond, of their relationship, was all that they shared
As her family was going through a major crisis he sought from her – a “meet up”
She decided at that moment, it was long over; there was no chance
The memories of the past would linger with them both forever
Of their powerful magnetic bond to one another but that was all that they had
And the woman sees that and realizes that there’s more to a relationship than attraction.
She seeks more, wants more, deserves more…and is willing to wait for more
And not just for a magnetic bond.
