Obsession

By: Jonathan Noble

Tunnel vision obsession, fixation on your prey,
You hunt by day and night, in dark and light
To capture like an expert trapper your quarry,
And you can see nothing else, to left or right;
You have your target in sight as it takes flight,
And your mind is on nothing else but to bind
Your victim, however that may be; this is key
To your present situation: stanch infatuation,
And you’ll not be satisfied till you’re gratified
With having what you want, and it taunts you;
Like a frenzied train running thru your brain
Nothing else matters even as life batters you
On all sides; there is nothing else but this one;
And this is finally your only real possession:
Obsession

  1. Marvelous again!
    “Your victim, however that may be; this is key”…change the word ‘however’ in ‘whoever’ and it would give the poem a totally different perspective. But don’t, cause I definitely prefer the ‘however’-one 😉
