Obsession

He fell in love with her
Lost himself in her world
He couldn't withstand her resplendent look
Her eyes shone like a shooting star
Glowing in a glamorous manner
With her rounded face carved like
the sculptures of beautiful angels

He could burn the world for her
Calm the raging storm if he had the power
Climb the highest mountain to profess his love
Fight the deadliest creatures to protect her
But he forgot she was the daughter of chaos
Love means nothing
Pain was her only language

Lost in this labyrinth of love
The way is bleak and torrid
Hope exists only in enigmatic form
If only he could rewind time
Life could be kind to him
Love could happen to exist
Between him and his love

This was like reading and once again being in a shoulda, woulda, coulda poster. I think we all have met this person at some point. My only thought here is that I felt the poem was not finished with the last line. I like jolting last thoughts, words, line, etc. but that's me.
Maybe if it incorporated the title like:
Love could happen to exist
Between him and obsession.

Just a thought. great read otherwise for me.

Pegasus was a genius,
living within a suit of difference.
He liked what he was,
nodded in respect and
simply flew . . . away.

using a metaphor you do not always have to say like you may use as
example as a moth to a flame etc
