Obsessed – Freeverse Poem

Every corner I turn,

I swear I can see your shadow,

Waiting to sneak up on me,

That sound,

That voice,

It sounds just like you,

There’s nothing I do,

That doesn’t remind me of you,

I can’t even think straight,

It’s driving me nuts,

You’ve taken over my brain,

Like a virus,

No way to sleep,

No way to focus,

Can’t you see that it’s driving me crazy,

‘Cuz I can’t get you out of my mind,

It’s impossible,

That song,

It’s so you,

It’s game day,

I hope you’re out there winning,

While I sit here obsessing,

I swear I could hear your voice,

Say my name the other night,

“Gosh, jeez Sunny”,

I don’t want to forget you,

Not that I think I ever will be able to,

You’re the only thing holding me down,

Keeping me straight,

My life line,

The one keeping me from going down stream to fast,

The one and only obsession that I can live with

Why I try ? – Freeverse Poem

Why do I try anymore?

This is all so crazy,

I feel like I’m just wearing myself out,

Just to let myself down,

Again,

Why?

That’s all I can say,

You used to make me feel fearless,

Like someday this would all go away,

But this isn’t Cinderella,

This ain’t no fairy tale,

And only some of my dreams come true,

‘Cuz the nightmares are dreams too,

I can’t sleep,

Just laying there,

Thinking about you,

Nothing is changing,

I’ll be stuck with this reality forever,

‘Cuz I’m only second thought,

I’m just your second best friend,

You text me when there’s nobody else to text,

You just laugh,

Act like we can joke it off,

But this is the reality,

And I can only hurt more,

It can’t get any worse than this,

It’s all downhill from here,

We will never be the same,

Ever again,

You have changed,

You just don’t know it,

But I can see it all,

And it scares me,

To not see what I saw before.
