Obsessive thoughts

Plague my mind

Could it be this?

Could it be that?

Or worse, what would they make of that?


Obsessive worries

Come and go

A little of this

A little of that

Or worse, there could be a lot of that


Imagined symptoms come and go

The internet searched

Until pixels snow

Obsessions turned inside out

Yet few answers ever drop out


When will it end?

How much must I bend

Until I learn to be free and just be me?

Will I just become a bore

Before they finally find a cure?

PS Thankfully this poem reflected a period of obsession in my life which has now passed!  I was prompted to share it after reading this http://meredithlbl.com/2014/08/27/jumping-to-conclusions/ which reminded me of this poem.
