A Beautiful Obsession


My love for you began
before I understood that
you would be a life-long
obsession. You wooed me
with promises of blissful
release, and pledged to
sustain me, encouraging
me to use you whenever
I had need. You tickled
my ears with sweet
nothings, encouraging
me to dance, to twirl
through lyrical dips and
curves that left me
breathless and wanting
for more.

You held nothing back,
revealing your fierce
passion and power to
rattle and persuade, cool
and cunning, cutting me
to the heart with
razor-like precision.
It only made me love
you more, drawing me
deep, with a yearning to
trace every syllable of
your complexity, fingers
trembling with each
touch, you became
an empty open book
begging to be filled.

Beautiful, beautiful
Words…if you must
know, you had me at
“hello”.
