The Mind Game

Infatuation
16" x 20" acrylic on canvas panel

~

She realized that Love
had been a surface event
complete with a mental paparazzi
filing images of every gaze and feeling

Scandalized,
She sorted through the cerebral snapshots,
heart scampering behind emotive stoicism
to hide what She could not utter aloud:

She'd sought His embrace
 knowing She'd still
be running from Herself
in the end:

Infatuation.
