Fatal Attraction

I was cribbing about being unable to write and my dear dear friend Leo gave me a pic to inspire and I wrote a small little fiction 55 on it. Lo and behold, I was kinda able to write after that I completed the prompt on Acrostic Only. 

I took his small feet in my hands and wondered if he’ll remember me when I’m gone. I didn’t have much time to spend with him. I would miss him grow, maybe even miss his first words, first steps. Would he miss me? Suddenly, he opened his eyes and I realized let’s make memories now.

Fatal Attraction- The Acrostic

Fragile, you seemed
Alabaster-toned your skin
Tenacious, your mind.
Alluring are your eyes, me to
Lands unknown.

As I sit across the 
Table, I look at you moving,
Talking, lips moving in perfect symphony.
Radiantly beaming.
A sigh escapes my lips.
Can't we be together?, I wonder
The pain of separation
Is more than I can take.
One more breath without you is my
Nemesis. My end. My quietus.

I know it lacks flow. But I tried to imply the confusion that he feels on seeing the girl that he loves but can't have.

wow rashi u truly write magic
fiction 55 was just so divine
and the poem....no better way to explain the fatal attraction

A sigh escapes my lips.
Can't we together, I wonder
The pain of separation
Is more than I can take.
One more breath without you is my
Nemesis. My end. My quietus.

these lines just explained it all

This is an amazing write!! Only...

Alluring are your eyes, me to
Lands unknown.

These lines.. for me seemed wrong.. what if you modify it to..

And your eyes, allured, beckoned me to
Lands unknown..

Just a suggestion.. hope you wont mind :)

I didnt mind it at all... Doesnt allure mean to tempt? So she is alluring him to lands unknown?

I don't know.. I will think after exams...

I like people correcting me.. Makes me feel they atleast read properly :P

Phew, love that word quietus!

This flowed okay by me. Nicely done.

Nice poem.. Beautiful capture :)

A sigh escapes my lips.
Can't we together, I wonder

Ah!!! some feelings they arouse !!

I loved the 55 fiction :)

Hmmm... Just a tweak, if u'd ask me (looking at what Winnie suggested)

*Alluring, are your eyes, me to ... ... ...*

I didn't notice that u had omitted a comma after *Alluring*. Yeah, a hyphen would solve the purpose too.

Peace. Have a nice day.

I think it flowed OK ... there are all types of fatal attractions. As much as I enjoyed the poem, I loved the dialogue and the little feet ... "let's make a memory now" ... this made my day!
