Potentially Delightful

Have you ever met someone
You find dangerously delightful,
deliriously addicting?
Yes, that kind of charisma
that crawls frighteningly through
your limbic system and without
warning holds you hostage
to their alluring anecdotes
or subtle nonchalance?
While all around you people
seem not to notice that you’ve
been tractor-beamed by some unspoken,
but oh-so-real-force field of human
connection, human magnetism
until finally, you resurface,
acknowledge your almost lost self,
return to mendacity, and then
quickly begin the search again for
that next thrilling ride?

I have.
