Obsessive Inclination

You are an addiction
A drug to my heart
Poison to my soul
The forbidden edge

Craving your touch
Unable to erase your image
Hearing your voice in my sleep
Aroused to a pitch, soaked in sweat

You have another; I have mine
Wanting too much; taking too little
Dancing around the chemistry
Refusing the forbidden fruit

Leave my soul intact
My heart untainted
I cannot survive the high
The crash will cost too much

    Passion is like an addiction to "forbidden fruit." The last line is so true, but where would we be if we didn't let love enter our lives. This is a feeling to which all can relate, Lena. Nice work! I'll have to read more of your poetry. (The "nightmare" story is true, including the knee pain.) Love, Carolyn

    A powerful write Lena, to be in the throws of obsession is a treachery path to take. Well written.
