It starts with just an inkling
A sense of slight unease
A hypothetical horror
That brings you to your knees.
Before long it has consumed you
The paranoia and the rage.
You want her where she is in your sights
Safely in her cage.
You know what she is hiding
But you have yet to find the proof
You follow her and track her calls
In a bid to find the truth.
Love becomes obsession
Envy turns to spite
Anger fuels your every move
Desperate for a fight
It doesn’t matter that she was innocent
She dared to make you think
It is her responsibility
That she pushed you off the brink.

You do not own this woman
In truth you never had
You had no right to spy on her
She did not turn you mad.
A lifetime of misogyny
She was never your possession
You only have yourself to blame
For your violent obsession
So next time you have suspicions
Of a lover with another man
Think back upon your actions
And how this all began.
