Obsession

 

It starts off nice and gentle,

A feeling that is sweet

But then it just gets deeper

And sweeps you from your feet.

 

It digs it’s way down firmly

With the persistence of a mole,

By the time you come to know it

You’re no longer in control.

 

This idea that has flourished

So firmly in your mind --

Now you can’t get rid of it,

It doesn’t seem so kind.

 

It takes over every moment

And possesses every thought,

It’s become a real obsession

And you are so surely caught.

 

It winds its way around your head

Encompasses your brain;

If you don’t get a grip on it

You’ll find yourself insane.

 

Obsessions can take many forms,

Be sparked by many things,

But once the groundwork’s put in place

It’s misery it brings.
