Don’t Feed the Dragon

It started as a spark
Which was blown into a flame

It started as an idea
That turned into an obsession

I never used to like you
At least not in this way

You were something special
That I will admit

The words were not mine
But soon became an echo
Guiding all my actions

I am nothing
Without the world around me

I am a judge
Too easily influenced

First impressions are everything
First impressions are easily swayed

I started talking more about you
Spurred on by their encouragement

Now you’re a permanent feature
Fixtured in my mind

I can’t sleep
Eat
Write
Or breathe
Without thinking of you

Each day I tell myself to forget
Each night you come back to me

I can’t stand this anymore
I can’t keep dreaming of what can never be

I’m sick of writing poetry
That will never capture this conflict

You make me shake
As though I don’t have enough sugar in my bloodstream to sustain me
You cause heart palpitations
As though there is something I have to fear

I can’t take this anymore
I can’t stop this flood of feelings
Why did they feed the dragon?
