Obsession (by Calvin Klein)

undeniable as dawn and dusk upon the still horizon
as tulips reincarnate in bright hues on blue grass gardens
so is the scent that lingered in the folds of your leather coat
as it catches wind on someone else’s skin….so wrong….

familiar…just  like my breathing….obsession in the air
aching like a thorn in my heart it bleeds a refrain of pain
remembrance should be buried in the earth where you lay
yet it haunts me still and taunts my soul in turmoil (indelible)

like midnight slaw mangled in a bowl of noose and weeping
somewhere you slumber (buried asleep) as my throat chokes
I still miss your laughter when that cologne hit’s a June breeze
if I close my eyes I still see your crooked grin in mid day sun

as tangible as wisps of smoke my fingers reach your smile
I toss the solemn words “I miss you” on the lakeside silence
I will see you again….this I know….and the scent assails
always like footprints dried in concrete….forever with me

*R.I.P my friend…..

Inspired by Sir Brian’s contest “Indelible Impressions”

    Great choice of title Christie with the double meaning. Starts off on the more base level with the cologne but then the real nature of the word obsession comes through after a few reads. I love the phrase 'buried asleep', so simple but packs a punch once the reader starts grasping what it's hinting at...I agree with you though wholeheartedly, the subject will see her love again.

    I too missed this gem!! Christie, a poem like this is delicious, but sad, however, as beautiful as it is the pain is a "wisp" less, but still aches, I can see, Great Work, Jim

    Hi Christie... all I can say is that this person must have meant so very much to you, very sad, your missing is so apparent. So brave of you to have posted it.

    ....Smile, but hey, I already have a good start upon this thought; for 'many' of "Your" writes, I have already printed!! Why? Because they are a part of "You;" and "You" are great!!!:):):)~And like I afore said, someday I am going to meet "You"~And what a wonderful moment that be; to finally look into "Your Beautiful Eyes," and not just these pages of the wonders, of "Your Amazing Soul!!!":):):)~And perhaps, "You" shall then autograph this special edition, and seal it with a kiss....Cont....

    ....I deeply hope, that "You" are doing so very wonderfully, and that the fragrance of happiness and hope, is overwhelming the senses of "Your Priceless Soul!!!?":):):)~As I was gathering my coffee, I was thinking what a wonderful thing it would be, to copy everyone of "Your Poems," and to number them in orders pages, and to have a binder make them into a book~One which I would hold for my own private collection, of one of contemporaries writers I have ever known!!!:):):)....Cont....

  1. Date: 6/12/2009 9:10:00 AM

    ....The final verse within "Your" opening stanza is quite interesting!?...."So unfair....Almost as if he lives still? And yet, perhaps in "Your Beautiful Heart," it is only he, that should ever being wearing this fragrance embedded within "Your" love for him, and no one else; which in turn then, would make it seem unfair...."Good Afternoon Precious, Priceless, Gifted & Beautiful Christie Moses, And Your Little Tinkerbell Brianna!!!":):):)....Cont....

    This is so understandably beautiful~And as "You" know I can definately relate to this soul stirring expression of emotions towards the loss of a deeply beloved one....And I truly loved "Your Line Beautiful Christie," wherein "You" said--"I will see you again"~You know, dearest lady, "You" can paint even somber, so vividly pretty, within the brightened brush of "Your Pen!!!":):):)....Cont....
