People get obsessed sometimes
with something from the past.
It clouds their judgement
with any future partner.
They see the same traits
within everything they do
no matter how innocent they are.
Their obsession becomes
detrimental to the relationship they have.
They construe everything
as being the same as the past.
Then they begin to play big brother
watching their every move,
accusing them with everything they do.
Their obsession becomes bigger
until it begins to consume them
in every move they make.
The biggest problem is they cannot see it,
and how it is destroying their life.
They feel no one needs space,
a time on their own.
If their partner takes that space,
they are up to something
that they shouldn’t be doing.
Soon the obsession leads to paranoia
and what they had good
begins to collapse around them
never to be retrieved again.
