Obsessions

Long standing passions fading into obsessions deep and dark
Taking its tolls to possess your soul they leave their mark
After much strife little things appear bigger than life
And life fades without a fight
When confronted with obsessions deep and dark

The rains come clean  and pure
To cleanse the passions and soothe the soul  
Till nothing remains to heal the marks 
Of bewitching  obsessions possessive and dark

One step wrong  and all is lost 
Gone are the sunny days of memories past
Your soul is mine so don’t look for me
 For I am gone into obsessions dreary and dark

But be aware I am not the only one 
All are equal and all are prey
Hidden behind that ray of sun obsessions remain 
When all else is done the darkness comes  unbidden
Then you are the only one left with obsessions hidden
