The girl in the photograph

Felicity Jones by Mark Abrahams

 

The girl in the photograph

The girl in the photograph
is swagger and poise
shyness and hope
uncertainty and strength

The girl in the photograph
is desire and fear
softness and style
fantasy and real

The girl in the photograph
is hunger and joy
knowledge and warmth
rebellion and love

The girl in the photograph
is danger and sex
promise and dreams
intelligence and wild

The girl in the photograph
is not mine
but I wish
she was

The photograph here is the stunning English actress Felicity Jones (a long-term crush), and was taken by Mark Abrahams for © GQ Magazine in 2014. Since I posted this a while back she has found much deserved fame in the Star Wars franchise. The poem is not about her.

This is not one of my new ones – I think I first posted it three years ago, but I hope you enjoy. Sometimes I see a girl in a photograph…..

A definition of infatuation

felicity-jones-by-mark-abrahams-for-gq-magazine

 

For reasons fully known only to myself, some four or five years ago I was looking for a serious definition of infatuation.

But I found this in the Urban Dictionary. It made me laugh so much that I posted it on my blog at the time. I remembered it the other day, and thought a few of you might enjoy it.

Some of us may have been the ‘object’ but who of us cannot admit to having been the ‘obsessor’ at least once.

infatuation

 

All-encompassing, gut-wrenching, soul-draining activity that only requires the active involvement of one individual: the obsessor. A second individual is required for the peripheral need of providing the obsessor with an object of needless, unappreciated, possibly unwanted, often unwarranted affection. The second individual may or may not be aware of his/her peripheral involvement, and may or may not be willing to be peripherally involved: the object’s awareness and/or willingness of being an object of desire is of no consequence to the obsessor.

The poem is not about her or this photograph (though it is certainly about someone in a photograph) but she illustrates it well

This is not one of my new ones – I think I first posted it two years ago, but I hope you enjoy.

Oh and Jones,
