Verse: Obsession

I know
there are
those who are
yet persist

those who
did not have
the good fortune
to be chosen as
your detainees

those who
did discard
their names
at the mere
mention of yours

those who
spoke only
in your silences
and lived
only in
your presence

those who
beguiled themselves
with sad superlatives
and supplications
naked and sleeping
in your waking dreams

those who
remain fixed
even when
presented with
the easy acquisitions
and pastimes

those who
would not abandon
their pursuit
of you
any more
than I would

and I
will not be
