Day 23: I Am Obsessed WithMature

Prompt: I'm obsessed with_____.

Result: a six-stanza haiku.

Obsession Six Times Over

 

I am obsessed with

A new thing each passing week

Daydreams take my mind

 

Sometimes they come back

Old passions ever reborn

Their ghosts never pass

 

I am obsessed with

My ideals of perfection

Though I know they’re lies

 

The world cannot match

The visions in my mind’s eye

I wish to leave here

 

I am obsessed with

Fantasies and prophecies

Desire rules me

 

I am too obsessed

I no longer know what’s real

Nor do I much care

The End
