Fatal Attraction


I've never tried an acrostic before and I'm probably breaking all the rules (maybe it shouldn't rhyme!)

 But I was intrigued when Anthony North's blog led me to

  ACROSTIC ONLY
acrosticonly.blogspot.com

Gosh! I had to dredge back sixty years to remember this sort of emotion!

FATAL ATTRACTION 

Fear that it's too good to last!
Already, though, the die is cast.
Two hearts that seem to beat as one,
Aching until the war is won.
Love is surely not this pain!
*
And will we pass this way again?
Tenderness but also threat
This will leave me with regret.
Romance should be light and airy
And yet, with you, there's something scary!
Can I walk away from you?
Tell me me what I ought to do!
I am putty in your hands!
Oh this love makes such demands!
Never go!
I need you so!

This is a beautiful poem to which the acrostic and the rhyme only add. The tenderness and need would be there even without them.

My goodness, this is so VERY good! I loved the flow and the rhyming .. this was so refreshing to read.

Love, it seems, is a bad fatal attraction that none of us can resist.

Thanks for joining the fun, do come back and play with us ...again and again!

Very good acrostic poem...you hit the nail on the head with staying to the prompt and making it clear from the words of expression in your poem.
