Imitated Obsession

Imitated Obsession

A Poem by moog-drika
"

Narcissist, Homosexual or Autosexual?

"
I got a glimpse of her 
  staring at me with an enchantment
    like she was trying to edit my presence.

I felt something for her.

Her inky eyes were pulling me towards her,
       it seemed like she read my newborn feelings.

Hushed interactions were going on 
making my feelings even more mature.

She kept imitating my persona
and I couldn't understand her atypical originality. 

I looked for a golden trait in her twisted soul,
a unique love,
   different from mine.

I kept wanting her to get out of the shady mirror,
yet she stood behind it.

Feelings got desperate to get her reflected existence,
      but I couldn't reach her.
A bitter insanity was eating me up.
      but I still couldn't reach her.

Losing all the breath of life, 
   my feelings took her soul with mine,
     and I was left with my expired figure.

Author's Note

moog-drika
it took me 2 years (2014-12016) to write something on this theme. So I really have a deep feeling for this write. I do welcome constructive criticism. I know there are flaws in the write, I wish to modify it too since I wrote it when I was kinda amateur that time.
However, people say that this is one of the weakest pieces I wrote down. It hurt me a little thinking if it's so bad. Hence, I wanna know your opinion.

Thank you so much for the compliment :D It means a lot :D
I like 'edit my presence' .. intense stuff. Another person? Or part of one being? The otherness could even be a poem.

Was my pleasure to read your work and you are welcome.
Like this too, this has an almost metaphysical obsession with emotions, shades of Donne, or the moral teachings of Milton. Good work.

I love the imagery in the beginning "edit" "ink" "read." Makes me think "sometimes we don't understand why life writes itself the way it does." The pull that she had on you comes through by pulling in the reader. If I was to give a suggestion I would say to try and bring back the theme of writing into the end. There is a lot of potential for this poem with a little expanding. Great writing!

What we see in a "look" can pause our world - especially when it's into our own eyes.
