Ocd Girl - Poem by Kathy Lippard Cobb

Turn the bathroom light on.
Go to the bathroom.
Wash my hands.
Dry my hands.
Turn the bathroom light off.
Turn light on.
Turn light off.

Turn the hall light on.
Be sure that the breaker to the stove is off.
Turn the hall light off.
Turn light on.
Turn light off.

Turn the kitchen light on.
Be sure the stove is still off, and the toaster is unplugged.
Turn the kitchen light off.
Turn light on.
Turn light off.

Turn the living room light on.
Double-check all door and window locks.
Turn the living room light off.
Turn light on.
Turn light off.

Turn the bedroom light on.
Center the pillows.
Be sure the comforter drapes evenly on all sides.
Turn the bedroom light off.
Turn light on.
Turn light off.

Lie down, relax, and try to sleep.

(Five minutes later)

Turn the bathroom light on.
Go to the bathroom.
Wash my hands.
Dry my hands.
Turn the bathroom light off.
Turn light on.
Turn light off.

All through the night...
Kill me Kill me Kill me Kill me Kill me Kill me
Kill me Kill me Kill me Kill me Kill me Kill me...
