Love, or Obsession?

Layla Peets, Denay Thompson/editor

What’s it like to be you?

I’m not envious, but how does it feel?

What’s it like to just live where you do?

When you go to sleep at night, what do you dream about?

When you wash your hair, what does it smell like?

When you look in the mirror, what do you think about yourself?


Let me into your mind.

I’ll crawl into your skin,

feel your feelings,

think your thoughts.

To be as close as possible.


This is love.

Love in the truest form.

Love is wanting to be close to someone, right?

To want to spend every waking moment with someone.

To never let them go, no matter how much they want to.



Don’t run.

Don’t fight it.

Don’t fight me.


We’re what the love songs sing about.

We’re what all the poems are made for.


We’re meant to be,

You just don’t realize it.
