Natural history of obsession

musings

red orchAn infatuation germinated

In the depths of my mind

It grew in size, and instigated

Me to turn an eye blind

To the warnings of reason:

Unchecked and untamed

With each passing season

It got deformed and inflamed

Turned into an obsession

Threatening to tear apart

Bringing, in succession

Joy and despair to my heart

The obsession catapulted me

On a roller-coaster ride

Of emotions, like a stormy sea

I had to face them, with no place to hide

The harder I tried to fight my emotions

The more they tormented me

I then gave up, just went through the motions

From the storm I sailed into calmer sea

Time and distance worked their magic

My obsession died a peaceful death

Eventually, instead of an end tragic

I painlessly put the matter to rest.
