Obsession

by Teri T Lahmon

I belong to you
These fingertips
touch
only to feel your skin
move across their sensitive pads
This tongue licks
only to taste the secretions
of the various glands in your glorious body
These eyes look
only to devour the lines and
angles of your anatomy
My being exists to analyze
the anomaly of you
I feel only to love you
Dream only to fantasize of you
Sleep only to
wake
to roll over
and see
to drink in the experience of you
all over again.

Author's Note: Eventhough I wrote it, I find this poem to be creepy...I wrote it while "Body and Soul" as sung by Billie Holliday was floating in my head. That song reminds me of being obsessed with one's lover, of being owned in a sense, and this poem is what came of that. I may tweak it a bit in a couple days, but this is more or less a final version.

I'm with John, I like this because I can read it either way, healthy or unhealthy. i liked how you used a lot of tems associated with anatomy (pads, glands, secretions, etc) in this. Very good, thank you for sharing {m}
