Jason J. Yu
Attraction(Love V. Lust)
Can you stare at her picture, and say you love her?
Love her more, than any other person could love her?
But do you know her? Or do you just witness?
Witness her loveliness while drowning in sickness.
Addicted to her eyes, to her hair and looks.
Not by the way she thinks aloud, or speaks proudly.
Proudly, profusely, at all she could be.
Do you love what you cannot see? Can this be?
Do you not see beauty unless it's her body?
Do you know what dreams she has in her sleep?
Or the things she thinks about so thoughtfully deep?
Do you know her unique styles? Or just notice her smile?
Can you not distinguish love from what you see?
For what you see in this picture, is not she.
But a fixture. A body. A shell.
She is more than pretty.
She is an individual of spirituality.
And equally, beautifully, more than a body.
