Attraction Is Inherence

It's not your appearance. It's not your outer shell.
Your attraction is inherence.
Perhaps it's in your spell.

It's not your common sense. It's not your lucid mind.
Your attraction is inherence.
Perhaps it's in your bind.

It's not your performance. It's not your lively show.
Your attraction is inherence.
Perhaps it's in your glow.

It's not your strong defense. It's not your refuge shield.
Your attraction is inherence.
Perhaps it's in your yield.

It's not your endurance. It's not your gutsy grit.
Your attraction is inherence.
Perhaps it's in your fit.

It's not your odd pretence. It's not your wacky style.
Your attraction is inherence.
Perhaps it's in your smile.
