Obsession dominates your thoughts
And persists upon your allegiance to it
Its wickedness swallows you up
And spits you out into your own sorrow
It shields your eyes from the truth
And commends you for your perception of it
It makes strangers become your intimate lover
And you are in their eyes, their lover
Their fragile chastity complies
With the sanctity of love, and their
Vulnerability opens the gates to the
Mystery and malice of love
Love can impale you, but with that
Same sword, open the path of love before you
It takes you to the divine truth of love
And delivers you closer to the heart of life
