Secret Obsession

December 6, 2009
What hides behind that complacent smile?
Those eyes that show too much is there.
Is there hope, is there joy or even delight?
Or are you living a world of absolute despair?
I see through those smiles and even those lies,
And I truly know that something is there.
You have an obsession that keeps you alive,
A thing you hope one day you will have.
I have thought so much on what it might be
But you hide your thoughts so carefully.
My guess is you care about the people you "hate"
But why let on to something you can't change.
You're the fool, you're the geek,
The one that no one really likes.
That is why you keep an obsession buried deep in your heart.
I figured it out, this time I know,
Its love that makes your face glow.
You don't have it yet you hope,
You can't see it but you know that its there.
Love is your secret obsession!

I Love how you write in stanzas. The creativness of this poem is outstanding. I wish I could write like this. I think it shows the Greed people have for love. How it changes them. Again this is a dope piece :)
