of Attraction’s chemistry

L. B. Mek


It’s in how your sway

walks-in, to any room

taking my breath away


Whole sentences spoken, speechless

when our eyes meet

a glance is all we ever need, wordless


They, write about love

like it’s a battlefield, but

we’re just having fun, teasing

games, as romancing playfields 


It’s in the way you speak

so tender sweet, all that you give

instinctively, willingly  

always just you and me, loyalty


keeping my tone light, knowingly

my words, tap dancing subtlety 

while my heart’s, sincerity

is drum-line pulsating, fervently


When it’s the right connection 

it’s all about treasured interactions

that sensuality of mutual gratification

    We can see the 'sway' is somewhat the personification of 'chemistry' between individuals. In other kingdoms it is likened to a mating dance.

    • L. B. Mek

      dance of life, begins
      when two eyes meet, click
      and plant humanity's seeds
      .. literally ..
      (thank you! dear Poet
      really appreciate your continued support
      so glad you're enjoying the reads)

      • JoyJoy

        I love the melody of this poem

        • L. B. Mek

          rhyme is a wonderful way to showcase
          poetry and music's, synchronicity
          thank you for the wonderful comment, dear Poet

        • Neville

          there is something so very attractive .. indeed, alluring about a sway isn't there .. now captured here for all eternity .. damned near perfect if you ask me .. Neville

          • L. B. Mek

            'sway', as a body's business card
            showcasing: attitude, whimsy and a subtle glimpse
            of physical prowess..
            bullet point introductions, teasing
            of the true goodness, that awaits
            when equally beneficial partnerships can be made...
            as long as I have my keyboard shovel
            I'm a try and dig my way out of the holes
            I make for myself...
            'ahem, no really I'm all about the personality'
            thank you Hyung, what encouraging words

            You have described it well, the small things that let us know that the match is right. I was struck by the third stanza where the rhyme came on the second to the last word in the line "like a battlefield, but" and its rhyme in the last line "games, as romancing playfields" This small break, so subtle left shadows in my mind like an echo bringing me back again and again. It was a wonderful ploy.

              ohhhhh, now good Sir
              you do know how to spoil your poetic kin
              bless you! you've made my weekend
              rarely can we expect others to invest the time
              and seek the workings behind the aesthetic flow
              of a blank verse scribble..
              how very, kind of you dear Poet
              I'll treasure this comment, thank you!

            • Bella Shepard

              Such an enchanting write my friend. How to explain body language, chemistry, a glance that can draw two people together at first sight. You have captured this so well, a true joy to read!

              • L. B. Mek

                so glad you enjoyed it dear Poet
                and thank you, as ever
                for such a supportive comment

              • SureshG

                Your poetry today immediately reminded me of the song SWAY by Dean Martin, and the lines -
                I can hear the sound of violins
                Long before it begins -
                and the dance moves therein, so personify the creative so expressed here.

                • L. B. Mek

                  what a great observation
                  the great dean martin is up there with my all-time favourites
                  thank you! dear Poet
                  a great comment

                • PoetVids - I am WriteBeLight only in Video Version :)

                  Very sweet and romantic verse.

                  • L. B. Mek

                    indeed, thank you kind poet

                  • Kinsey Peterson

                    Your word choice is as exquisite as always. "fervently" and "playfields" words that I would likely overlook that you brought into this masterpiece. Thank you for sharing 🙂

                    • L. B. Mek

                      oh wow, thank you!
                      how effusive, and so very kind
                      (pssst, btw cheque is in the post)

                    • Rocky Lagou

                      This is killer.
                      "They, write about love
                      like it’s a battlefield, but
                      we’re just having fun, teasing
                      games, as romancing playfields"
                      Jeez can your metaphors get any better?
                      Like that is so true, there be writers, and I'm talking even outside of poetry, like songwriters and playwrights, who torment the sweet love tale into toxicity. But this poem felt just right.
                      Beautifully versified.

                      • L. B. Mek

                        don't worry
                        I've got my fair share of 'those' scribbles as well
                        but yeah, your point is well made
                        Love's beauty and joy needs to be expressed as much
                        as its heartbreak side-effects.. lol
                        I'm really glad you enjoyed the read, dear Poet
                        thank you! for your generous encouragement
