Obsessed

By Caleb   

I try to hold back
what I feel for you
yet it's hard
because my mind races
my heart pounds
sometimes breaking in two
My hands sweat into a sensory of shock—
anticipating the moment with someone who is not—
thinking of me
like the sunrise everyday
and thinking of me
as time slips away
and thinking of me
more than now and then—
thinking of me
over and over again
It's hard to hold back
what I feel inside
I do try
with my thoughts of you
conversation is yours
while my pounding heart
aches for you more
and my trembling hands
relax by submission
realising the moment
with someone who isn't
thinking of me
like the sun sets every night
and thinking of me
as time takes flight
and thinking of me
more than now and then—
thinking of me
over and over again

Obsessed is letting the person who is loved possibly a close friend have the way with practically anything that has to do with being together. It's a quiet poem that says the person can get away with almost whatever there is to get away with in a relationship. Although the title and the idea are extreme, the poem points out that all that is wanted is for the loved to do what is being done and that is to be loved, at least thought of, twenty-four hours everyday and all day without having to wonder about it.
