My Sweet Obsession

Poem By Cassandra Boyd

You keep me smiling, you chase away my blues,
my spirits are high when I’m with you.
My days are long, when you’re gone.
just barely existing when I’m alone.

To see your face, to feel your embrace,
awakens feelings that surpass time or space.
Your laughter rings out clear and crystalline,
it touches that secret place within.

A place reserved for so few,
its occupancy filled to the brim with you.
Don’t want to satisfy this emotional thirst,
I want to drink from your cup
until my heart bursts.

In the still of the darkness
and the quiet of the night,
when I lie in bed holding my pillow tight,
just before I fall asleep counting
my blessin’s, I never forget
to mention
my sweet obsession.

Yellow, Green, Blue,
fear, envy, sadness,
your colors shine so bright
and they wave like a flag up high.

when we will grow old together,
we will spend hours on end

Would You Love Me Any Less

If I told you my secret would you love me any less?
Would you dismiss me from your life
and make me have regrets?
