Othello was in heat of passion’s fire Being truly locked in love with his desire. Seeing Desdemona gave the Moor new life, Eloping in the night to make her wife. Soon Iago executes a devious plan. So, Othello will think Cassio’s his wife's man. In Othello’s eyes, she was a worthless shrew. Obsessed with rage, his lovely wife he slew. Not long after, with his sword he kills self too. 7/19/17 OBSESSION Sponsored by: Silent One

You know Silent One, obsession is not in my life. But, it was a good contest line and I wanted to participate so I had to think it through. Thanks for the win. Blessings and love, Janis.
