Obsession

Obsession was a song that got to me reminding me of what I had gone through, the first time feelings gushed as poetry! Even though that song did not exactly describe my circumstance, some parts rang true. Obsession was a song that got to me. A rare and gorgeous butterfly was he - that dark-eyed man who into my life flew the first time feelings gushed as poetry! I fell so hard and was too blind to see the damage to my young heart he could do. Obsession was a song that got to me. I was a rose and he – a honey bee. He came on strong. From me came something new - the first time feelings gushed as poetry! Although a scoundrel he turned out to be, I love the song which still can make me blue. Obsession was a song that got to me - the first time feelings gushed as poetry! April 24, 2017 for the "Your Favorite Song Contest" of Alexis Y. Note: I cannot narrow down to a favorite song, but for the 80's decade and for the feelings the song evoked in me, Obsession is a fave!

Thanks, Glen. I love LOVE SHACK and many other 80's songs. I grew up on 60's and 70's music but all my life I have tuned to the popular music channel, so I love ALL music that sounds good to me up until today!

I don't know this song, but I have songs from my youth that remind me of similar feelings and circumstances. Good luck in the contest.

Yes, I have a few others like that. The judge wanted a poem that made us really feel, so I was stuck with this odd choice!!!

the sixties was my decade, I never heard this song, to much going on in life for me in the 80's but it seems your emotions were exploring love in the 80's..good luck

70's was MY decade but this song coming later in 80's made me recall this emotional time of my youth.

I don't think I ever really listened to the words before...no one wants to be a possession.

Keep in mind not all the words related to my situation! But parts of the song related to my feelings and also to his.

I really thank that scoundrel that made you love that song Obsession...I'm sad it still makes you blue, but happy feelings through your poetry started gushing through, lovely sweet sweet lady.
