When You're Away

Possessiveness the engorged serpent
billows up from my waist in
ordinary conversations,
hood flame and flaring,
and rushes to swallow
the room, chairs and tables,
my companions.

Chagrined, I sit on it and
push it down.

"possessiveness" ....
possessed me, us and my lil treasure.
like a ghost ..
which scares me from behind the curtains..
whispers.... screams and laughs
then like a gush of wind...
i have chosen now to let it go....
to not be possessed.... by "possessivenss"..
to continue possessing..
my lil treasure...
my five year long relationship!!!
