What does it mean when i cant stop thinking about someone?
What does it mean when i am obsessing?
paranoid they dont love me in return?  
aching to be around them?
to smell their scent of something .....something... 
beautiful, primal, instinctual, a need to have. 
nothing will satisfy the "need" to have them NOW and in the future. 

Is then when i purchase her with a ring?
Own her sexuality till death do we part. 
I must own her.... forever.....

    Good one. I tell my hubby all the time it's till death till we part and then spend the afterlife together. He groans at that one. I was so paranoid after 9/11 I ended up in a hospital. Ellen

    Perhaps there is a difference between thinking as obsessive and identifying with someone, giving you a awareness of connection on a spiritual basis. Another thought provoking write and if you have the time, please check your soupmail. Thank you for sharing, and thank you also for reading and commenting on my poem. Caroline.
