Attraction is a mystery
What is it that captures, captivates and compels?
What is it that draws us, like iron to magnet, bee to honey, moth to light? What is it that makes us warm to another, need to make contact, need to be in their presence, or simply make us catch our breath when they come close?
Is it in their eyes, or their mouth? Is it the arc of their smile? Is it in their height, their weight, their curves and lines? Is it in the colour of their skin or their hair? Is it in their laughter, or their voice, or their words, or the intelligent mind within?
Is it in their honesty, their truth, their empathy, their kindness, their compassion, their hope?
Is it in their movement, their balance, the way their body moves when they walk? Is it in the clothes they wear?
Is it in what they do, what they like, what they believe?
Is it in their beauty, and the beauty they see around them?
Is it in how good they make us feel?
Is it something we instantly see deep in their soul, something we recognise and know? Something that touches our own?
Is it that we sense they will complete us?
Attraction is a mystery.
Even after all these years I cannot explain it.
But I do know
I am deeply attracted to you
by all of the above.

Written a few years ago. I still don’t know the answer, and probably never will. But I do know what attracts me …
