Poetry Blogs (Obsession)
Sweet love you got something i havent had before and im a lover you just cant ignore
Hold your hands and open doors
Amazing thats what you are in every tense of the world
You give me butterflies in the dead of winter
And in the summer time i get flurries
Feeling the beaming of the sun hitting my face in the morning
You sleeping to the beating of my chest
Waking up to me car...

O, they can drive us really mad - our peculiar obsessions.
Are you cleaning all the time or are you buying too many possessions?
Or perhaps you are being miserly and keeping all of your savings.
Or may be you need to do or see something in order to satisfy your cravings.
Is your obsession so odd that no one else can understand?
Has it taken such a hold that it is getting o...

Wherever I go,
there you are.
I see you
in stormy skies.
I feel you
I smell you
among the pines.
I hear you
whispering at night.
I taste you
in the words of every love poem.
You are nowhere to be found,
yet always around.
you are the part of me I long to set free.

Searching for you
You’re the word
On the tip of my tongue
- tip - tip – tick – tock
You’re the face on my clock
You’re the catch in my breath
Like if I was to cough
Words of you
Would just tumble out
Like if I was to shout
Words of you
Would just rumble out
You’re built into my skull
You’re the clutch over my brain
You’re running through my veins...

I will paint a picture
of my life with a border
a perfect picture of obsessive compulsive disorder
imagine inside a house above a fire is a
the painting is of a scene
inside a house with a painting on the wall
above the fire
and smaller again the painting on the painting
on the painting and it just gets smaller until it's a dot
A single dot left on the chalk board

Ah! I loved you!
Lost to your soul,
I bared my heart
Within your mind
I held my heart...
as if all hearts sang with mine
as if all lips knew
I felt your blood pulse
and heat my soul
as your hair scourged my body
(Ah! I loved your hair!)...

Inertia be damned.
Every time you look at me
It's been too long.

I stare at your back, as if a portrait

from now to then and back again
in time; to see
all promise of epiphany roll down between
the cracks that hold you in
such favoured light
your pictures beg to be inhaled
their snapped relief
and Dietrich air of futures trapped in avenues
of silvered shadows deftly
drawn of umber hued schönheit

Do you realise what will be will always be
And do you realise what will never be the same
And do you realise what we were put here for
For some to give the glory
And others give the pain
I once had a friend
But I wanted more than friendship
Wanted more than he could give
I once had a love
though I wanted more than loving
Wanted more than just to liv...
