Fatal Attraction

How many times has it been where attraction has been the determining factor in a


A partnership?

A conversation?

A career?

I tell you what, if looks could kill in this world, we’d have all been tricked and put to death by the lustful intentions of people who swear that they don’t judge a book by its cover.

A pretty face and body make people do crazy stuff just to get a chance.

That chance could just be a “hello” and “goodbye” in the same sentence.

It’s come to the point where a DM will be left on ‘read’ just because of the fact that the person doesn’t meet a romantic interest.

It’s cool.

Being left on ‘read’ helps me to easily read that other person because the ink on each page ain’t that deep.

When they look at us, it gives a sensation in the pit of our stomachs.

Next thing you know, we’re nervous for no reason other than the fact that our confidence finally got raised above the minimum wage limit.

If that person so much as even throws out a hint of interest, we get hit like a lethal injection.

People are out here labeling themselves ‘ride or dies’ when they don’t even know what riding means.

They just die from suffocation from the lust of the other person that wraps them around their pinky finger.

If that attractive person has you in a spot where they know you’re in that trance,

Then you can kiss your normal interactions apart because you’re practically breaking invisible barriers just to breathe the same air as them.

Looks equal opportunity in the country of “equal” opportunity.

Let me put things in perspective for you.

I could sit here and write 401 different stories,

401 different poems,

401 different articles.

And you can multiply that by a thousand to make your calculator

File for its 401k.

At the end of the day, I’ll get outshined by a ray of sunshine that washed up on the beach with a body that everyone will break their necks to get to.
