I’d count down days to him.

My pounding would steal my breath at

the thought of him.

I observe my obsession from a distance

laughing at my absurdity,

thankful to have exorcised such ghosts.



thinking I’m seeing her soon

illuminates my being

with not-so-secret joy.

I acknowledge my obsession

in a collectitivity of compatriots

thankful for opportunities

to rub against greatness.

    Very nice piece… “rub against greatness”… I love the image 😉

  2. One good obsession leads to another. The difference is, each time it gets easier to let go- or so I now think.

What do you think?
