Teacher's Pet

As I look back, it all seems funny now
Recalling all those awkward teen age years
I pushed the limits farther than allowed
Supposedly when young, we had no fears

Infatuation caught me with the blues
My heart was swollen by love's gentle sting
It was a crush that only left a bruise
Left by the diamond in her wedding ring

The first day I laid eyes on her, I fell
The lightning bolt she was, that shook my world
And to this day I swear I'd know her smell
Could she have read my mind, she'd likely hurled

I hated school but never missed her class
She said she loved me 'cause I made her laugh

A Love Built On Trust

A love built on trust

Our love flutters on calypso breezes,
cruising on the tropic of Capricorn
All of our anxieties it eases,
as mango sun wakes us this August morn

Passionate dew glistens on sun kissed skin 
as we gaze at skies of peaches and cream
your essence incites desires within
We're enamored in this tropical dream

This is no cruise ship infatuation
We confess and reveal history's scars
tethered together in hearts migration
Promising love, under the moon and stars

Shooting stars ricochet through cosmic dust
Heavenly signs that our love's built on trust

Listen to words that cannot be spoken Feel rare rhythms only your heart can feel Taste passionate nectar your tongue has desired Look with infatuation at unseen visions Smell unique aroma that shall never fade Touch forbidden fruits that fascinate hunger Heal pacify pain rebuilding broken hearts Sing unspoken lyrics create a new song Love without limits never expressed before Die in peace knowing you were loved

One Look

one look and i knew
the attraction was fatal
would grow into devotion
and i’d never find a cure

The Birth

Infatuation one cold winter fell
like flower blossoms white to frigid ground.
The secrets that I’d never dared to tell
lay buried like the earth beneath each mound. 

An awful truth so haunted me I hid
it underneath the softness of new snow,
and when I’d come to think that I was rid
of it, your love for me began to grow.

That love, like sun, shone fully; soon I felt
your strong desire to understand my heart.
You saw, when you had made the first snow melt,
the ground laid bare. . . it tore us not apart!

From sunlight, passion’s snow, and naked earth
was white spring rose I write of given birth.

The Rose

Infatuation one cold winter fell
like flower blossoms white to frigid ground.
The secrets that I’d never dared to tell
lay buried like the earth beneath each mound. 

An awful truth so haunted me I hid
it underneath the softness of new snow,
and when I’d come to think that I was rid
of it, your love for me began to grow.

That love, like sun, shone fully; soon I felt
your strong desire to understand my heart.
You saw, when you had made the first snow melt,
the ground laid bare. . . it tore us not apart!

From sunlight, passion’s snow, and naked earth
was white spring rose I write of given birth.

The Fascination of Aspiration

Sincere lingering
     brought forth by proclivity
       infatuation fondness

       Flowers in mid-spring
    brought forth by simplicity
you are my constant conquest


Abrupt appetite
    brought forth by fascination
       devoted eagerness dwells

       Sweet scent, penetrate
   brought forth by aspiration	
laying down while you compel

Love's Beautiful Lawn

Wild grasses of my springtime heart unmown,
unruly, unrestrained, in silence grew.
Youth’s fierce infatuation madly blew
its untamed gales where tall, green blades had grown.
Fair birds of transient love have long since flown –
that tale’s dark thread unraveled. Segue to
the stunning, breathless moment I met you
and found the ageless love I’d never known.

As autumn yields to winter, hair recedes
brown-gray, and once-hard muscles dormant lie;
our fathomless love-light remains undimmed.
Spring’s passions redirected, naught impedes
love’s resolute commitment. You and I
adore our beautiful lawn, neatly trimmed.

I gave you my heart
and my infatuation
to ever entwine . . . 
I leave you my devotion 
at your stone cold tomb, engraved.

Heart Song

With devotion lost
You stepped through a low portal.
Took control of my desire.
You captured my broken heart.

I Tasted of Temptation

I tasted of temptation
With a pinch of infatuation
A touch of captivation
And a dash of imagination
With heaps of fascination
And a sense of excitation
With this newfound jubilation
You’re my favorite fixation

True Love Will Endure

Fancy the reasons why love is so elusive Could be we don’t know what we look for, Feelings that with love are not conducive Strange so many do not know the score Looking for love “in all the wrong places,” Confusing true love with an infatuation, Equating it with beautiful or perfect faces Often can lead to the nastiest situations. Generally, love requires time to mature Knowing yourself and your expectations, Commitment in love is not for the unsure I say, always beware of those hesitations. Work toward a relationship that is secure, I'm convinced that true love will endure.

Words of Love

I adore you. The devotion of my emotions are overwhelming. The fond delight of 
lusting for you hits that tender spot. I am mad for the passion sent through my 
weak body at the sight of your intensity. I respect your friendship more and more, 
but that wild sensation makes me hot.  I have an inclination that this involvement 
is not infatuation, rather, its LOVE. 

Je t'aime.

All Hopes Embers

How to endure
This infatuation 

When the touch of your hand
Is crucifixion 

And every glance
Enflames my soul

Yet better this than a 

And all hope’s embers
Growing cold.

"An infatuation can grow into a steady affair through love and marriage, but if weakened through silence and indifference, love which is magical can prove critical too"  ~ By Poet

An emotion born through chance A spark lit through glance Fanned through appearance Grown through acquaintance Confirmed through countenance Blazed through romance Interrupted through absence Steadied through alliance Tested through penance Decreased through silence Weakened through defiance Exhausted through indifference Worn out through intolerance Snubbed out through violence And ended up in divorce!

Dreams with sweet kisses
                                   searching for the devotion

Why Did You Cheat On Me?

Why did you cheat on me?
At the time was she better?
Was her kiss a door
that opened to forever?
Did she feel you with love?
Or was that just infatuation?
Did she get a thrill
out of my humiliation?
If you weren't in love with her,
then why'd you do it?
Did you not really like me
and use her to prove it?
Why did you cheat on me?
I did not deserve it.
It hurts so bad, 
you don't even know it.

Easy As Falling Off a Bike

Infatuation is what it's sometimes called You can give it any name you'd like I call it love, pure love sweet love It's as easy as falling off a bike No need for any special instructions But your heart must be willing to share All or even just a part of your heart Almost everyone has love to spare Nothing's really more important in life It's the engine that turns our wheel Can't think of anything that even comes close For passion, for intensity, for zeal Take it from me, an extremely sensitive male Who loves life and the joys it brings Once you discover the true meaning of life You find all year round is spring © Jack Ellison 2013

Youthful naivety 
Blame it on Puberty 
Mistaking infatuation with love

Wild and Foolish Love

Knowing that you exist in my heart
Even when you always decked on your hat
To lure the one that has giving you tough 
Times as you often attempt to ride on the rough
Edges of her frigid and rigid mind,
One is not amazed that blind 
Love can easily turn someone wild
Although the individuals with mild 
Hearts sometimes falls into wrong
Hands and it takes quite a long
Time to realize that infatuation
Breeds unwarranted tension and depression
Caused by emotional hurts and heartbreak,
That is usually the end story of a fake.

Gulf breeze chime my chimes
What I say here pass it on
Spring fling beckoning.

Infatuation -
A cat chases its own tail
Love begins at home.

Elusive wind blows
Bliss is like falling in love
I claim nostalgia.

Wrapped kisses with rose
A lonely hunter shivers 
Love last a life time.

Believe In Magic

In youth’s fantasies, passion fuels imagination. But instincts tell you love is more than infatuation. Morality's boundaries define who you think you are. In the guise of innocence, promiscuity's not far. In your world of happiness, trust is but an illusion. And faithfulness is part of reality's delusion. Exaltation and sorrow establish flexible norms. And the fickle winds of fate create emotional storms. But hope helps maintain your smile, anything less is tragic. For when you're young and in love, you still believe in magic. (Quatrain) 7/5/2015

Simply Not Infatuation

When I first met you 
you were so cute that
my brain just couldn't compute 
so I went mute
 As I stared in awe 
Wanting to know you
Noticing that 
the reason my heart ached was 
 because of you
A girl much more than a pretty face 
I never wanted to make love out of lust
but then I realized 
that it was in you I trust
So I must change 
to show you
this isn't simply a fascination
