The Universal Law Of Attraction - Poem by Jerry Buckley
'Every point mass attracts every single other point mass by a force pointing along the line intersecting both points. The force is proportional to the product of the two masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them.'
There had to be some rational explanation for such an unlikely attraction. On the surface it was improbable, if not impossible that two such divergent courses should be coaxed to converge - to merge - to comply with a higher law.
You were a rock planet, fixed and focused in orbit around a greater light, as I swooped into your gravity, an invasive comet from some otherworldly source.
What explanation can we possibly give to the force that brought our elements together? The physiologists would have us understand it’s all about physical traits and pheromones, yet neither of us were the other’s “type”; you told me so in no uncertain terms.
Then again, the sociologists want to preach in terms of proximity and frequency of contact. But there we dangled - two loose ends - detached on a campus courtyard.
The tried and true conventional wisdom about the importance of shared interests holds no water, as there were few, if any common bonds that should have attracted our interests.
I am nothing like your father, and I would rather sever a finger, than to equate you with my mom, will in fact go to my grave insisting Freud was a fraud.
Oh sure, there were my broad shoulders, my cock-of-the-walk-strut, my runner’s legs.vAnd who would dismiss your demure demeanor, your hourglass figure, and your dainty feet.
However, I carried the status of a toadstool, the potential of a used car salesman, the worldly savoir-faire of a country bumpkin; and you, too naive to notice the deficiencies in my outlook.
So then it makes no sense, no logic can be construed in play, to have brought us two together.vAnd yet, in defiance of the odds, we live united all these years; we shake our heads in a bewildered smile to the universe, and give credit to the fates; to Providence, to the sweet will of God; or them we simply fall back upon the scientific principle of magnetic attraction: which unequivocally states; can be substantiated in any laboratory: that opposites do - in fact - attract.
