From Your Obsessive Lover

Mesut Selvi 1957 (TURKEY)

I used to be an unconscious obsessive lover for a long time,
But now I want to be an irresistible real lover of you.
Though my friends say me that I am a miserable lover
And my love is a vain hope, like writing on water or darkness.
I am extremely happy and peaceful, for I've loved you up to now.
I want you to understand me, accept me
And give an answer to my love.
Listen to me, hear me and realize how powerful a love I feel to you;
To show and prove my virgin and wild love for you and to my friends.
I've visited rain forests and jungles to grow my love symbols in them.
I've planted various love seeds and colorful attractive love flowers;
To grow fresh, brand-new, and natural loves of the world with my hands;
To send you my original love messages when you need my love.
When they grow, they'll be unique love symbols for all lovers.
To count uncountable amount and the power of my love for you,
I'll name and number them
As "obsessive lover flower one, two, three" and so on.
I'll send them to you as different love smells and bunches every day,
"Your Obsessive Lover" will be written on a card
To remind you my love.
I call you again to hear me and understand me, my irresistible love.
Now I am a conscious obsessive lover who loves you from far away,
And waits for your decision which will make me your real lover.
