    Is there a difference between love and obsession?
    Cus if theres not yea I'm defiantly in love!!
    The love I have for him is a different kind of love
    Not that I love you mom kinda love
    It's a love like I don't wanna go a day without you kinda love
    Like theres not a minute that doesn't go by my heads not wrapped around you
    Love like I could go a million years just sitting around you
    Like I love it when you touch me
    I love it when you talk to me, even if they are insults
    Love like every time my phone rings or buzzes I pray that it's you
    Like I hate it when you talk to other girls kinda love
    & Not even in a good - cute kinda jealous way
    I mean like eww, I hate that girl & I don't even know her - is that love?
    Like I write poems just to say look stupid I love you
    Its funny to me how you can't see it
    Is there a difference between love and obsession?




    So to answer my own question question i say yes. Real love is more about compromising and trust lol & sanity. I wrote this when I was in one of my "poor me-lonely girl rants" which I often do from time to time. So yeah, please respond. I love criticism-i actually do wanna become a poet.

    Yes, there's a world of difference between "Love & Obsession"
    Love:
    If you truely love someone, let them go! ...If they return, it's Love.
    Obsession:
    If they don't return to you and you still holds on....
    it's Obsession!
    Wonderful piece poet, and yes, you are indeed a poet!

    Good Question

    Passion can be obsessive
    If it is not understood or desired.
    Love and feelings it's a mystery.

    great difference between da two

    Obsession can spell danger when one is obsess wit a passion
    to have someone whom is not of thee , it's a tool mentally

    To love is a mysteries thing of heart and feelings to openly give
    and wit unconditional bond where u have trust and honesty
    love is still unknown but often misunderstood ......

    they are different and love is a beautiful thing over da lust of obsession

    awesome piece continue to write

    When we are in that honeymoon stage of love, we can think of that special someone often, which can seem like an obsession. But true love never intends to harm, just to uplift and nurture. You're quite the poet, a wonderful writer.

    I believe love means to give and to seek nothing in return. Once we reach that point in our life we won't worry about obsession in ourselves. Your writing is refreshing, continue being in touch with your feelings. IT'S GREAT!:spin:

    I love it when you talk to me, even if they are insults

    This line is powerful. Its such a strong contrast. Here's a quote that I hope gives you some insight: "Love is strong, love is enduring, love is passioate, love is silly. There are a lot of things that love is, but 1 thing love is not is Uncertain" ~ Maya Angelou
