Magnificent Obssesion - Poem by Kevin Carney

Magnificent obsession…
I saw it as I wanted it to be.
Several hours since I have seen you last…
Somehow I know,
I am not going to sleep tonight…
Afraid I am to see the truth…
Give me a reason.
Tell me what you really need…
I talk and talk…
Do you really listen?
Somehow I hope you see.
Will it be alright in the end?
What will the outcome be?
Looking into the where of it all…
Just to play…
Somehow to keep…
I don’t think I can believe…
The offer still stands.
Pack you bags and come with me…
I’m hungry for change,
and want to move on.
Not just with anyone …
The history, the baggage we carry.
So complicate we are, I really don’t care…
I am running out of time…
Fearful I am to see it end.
If only you would say no…
