Love Obsessed with Keeping the Secret of My Love Obsession
Obsessed Love Triangles are Common in Relationships
Your Secret Love Obsessions
Have you ever been secretly obsessed with someone?
Preoccupied About Love
This poem about obsession speaks loudly of a secret place many love-obsessed people reside: in their heads. The long stares, eyes peering through cubicle cracks, followed by lunchtime daydreams, are all manifestations of the secret love obsessions we will never be able to put into words.
Our nights are full of dreams where we live out our love obsessions in the privacy of our living quarters, sometimes with our beloved partners lying beside us. Our daytime doodling and aimless surfs on the web vacillate between focus and distraction, as we obsess about the objects of our love.
It's easier to live out the fantasy in one's head rather than to constantly yearn for that which is unattainable. Although the harsh whiplash of our situations snaps us back to reality, we can't let go. The obsession itself ends up providing the thrill, through the act of fantasizing in our minds. After a time, we learn to accept the reality that love obsessions are best lived out and experienced as secret fantasies. In our sane moments, we know it's best to keep it to ourselves.
Our Obsessive Thoughts Remain Secrets
Can't get you off my mind
Like a favorite scent
Lingering in the air
Far past the time we've spent
In my head I see your face
I see I'm going crazy
Like a film that can't turn off
Going in and out of hazy
Bringing us together
An image of secret meetings
Obsessing about the times
We embrace with warm greetings
My reality is so warped
I pretend it's all so real
I anticipate the time
When you tell me how you feel
I know that in due time
I will be forced to accept
Obsession is a secret
That's better off well-kept
Love Fantasy: Dream or Reality?
