"Love and Obsession"

There's static at the door,
as you say your last goodbye.
There's no coming back,
no fixing it this time.
The damage has been done,
the fire has gone out,
no more excuses,
only simple doubts.
You can not persuade me.
You can not force me down.
I am not a helpless, little girl,
I will stand my ground.
I am stronger than you in will.
My addiction never strives.
Obsession when confused with love,
cuts like a knife.

Obsession confused with love. I grow tired of that, personally. I might not know the difference anymore.

I have only truly loved once, and I don't know when I will again

Good one, I like how quickly you are publishing new, well-written pieces

yes me too. my last love became more of just an obsession i realized and i went thru sum horrible lessons learned there. i had my worst breakdowns, and had just dug myself into this big pathetic hole and kept on digging deeper hoping i could change him, and that he would love me, but he lead me on so it wasnt all my fault. nelliana helped me out a lot on here. shes an inspiration to us all.

Love in its self is confusing most of the time, but when its true you will know it, and the feeling will be mutual. Even when you think you know it, theres usually some kind of doubt in your head, or something off, once all that is gone and yu can give your all to someone and they can do the same then perhaps, thats the true love you have been waiting for.

I like this one. "Static at the door" is a powerful statement, and I love you making a stand here, obviously well warranted.

Yes love is the most dynamic of realms. Just yesterday I blurted something that got me in more hot water than I have been in a long long time with my wife. Man it sure hurts when I'm my idiotic self, but that's the thing about love with the right person - it can always be worked out no matter the idiocy (of the Man?)..:}

I'm so glad you've made it through a trying time!

Nice job Nicole.
