Another NAGAS poem

Your wings are invisible
But you must have some somewhere
As you are a beautiful Angel
Your halo shimmers every time
You shake your head
And silver dust floats
Down to settle upon your
Elegant shoulders.
Your feet never touch the ground
Whilst your pinions and feathers
Vibrate musically and suspend
You an inch or so above the floor.

I am always dwn to earth.
It attracts me like a strong magnet
Attracts iron.
Whenever I try to reach for you
Your magnetism is the same polarity as mine
And pushes me firmly away.
I can see you but never touch you;
I can want you but never have you;
I can love you but never be requited.

Your Wings
Intriguing poem. I liked the metaphor of same magnetic polarity pushing two bodies apart.
