Ese’s Weekly Shoot & Quote Challenge – Obsession



Here is the quotation;

“The first time I saw you, my heart fell. The second time I saw you, my heart fell. The third time fourth time fifth time and every time since, my heart has fallen.
I stared at her.
You are the most beautiful woman I have ever seen. Your hair, your eyes, your lips, your body that you haven’t grown into, the way you walk, smile, laugh, the way your cheeks drop when you’re mad or upset, the way you drag your feet when you’re tired. Every single thing about you is beautiful.
I stared at her.
When I see you the World stops. It stops and all that exists for me is you and my eyes staring at you. There’s nothing else. No noise, no other people, no thoughts or worries, no yesterday, no tomorrow. The World just stops and it is a beautiful place and there is only you. Just you, and my eyes staring at you.
I stared.
When you’re gone, the World starts again, and I don’t like it as much. I can live in it, but I don’t like it. I just walk around in it and wait to see you again and wait for it to stop again. I love it when it stops. It’s the best fucking thing I’ve ever known or ever felt, the best thing, and that, beautiful Girl, is why I stare at you.” 

James Frey, A Million Little Pieces

I thought this went well with: Obsession.  I wonder if anyone would want to be loved this much…if it was the right person obsessing then maybe. What do you think?

  2. This is beautiful in every way, Michelle.
    I often say there can’t be too much love, and I will stick to that statement also here. I am afraid I…might be quite obsessive in the way I love, too (so the statement before is kind of…an explanatory excuse I can always use!). 🙂

  3. Good question that. I have often wished that I could be loved well, but I don’t think I could handle being the axle of somebody’s existence. Might be nice for a while but I think it will wear down your emotions in a short while.
    Lovely picture…

  4. It is beautiful, yet sad. I do agree that obsession lies at its heart. Obsession at this level is not very healthy. It sounds nice, but the person doing the obsessing is in a loop and the person being obsessed over can never really live up to those standards.
    Just my thoughts,

  5. Great post Michelle and I won’t do well with such an obsession. Too much of a good thing is not always a good thing. 😀 *hugs*

Namaste. My soul honors your soul. I honor the place in you where the entire universe resides. I honor the light, love, truth, beauty & peace within you, because it is also within me. In sharing these things we are united, we are the same, we are one.
