Obsessive I know I am
I happen to give a damn
as things might collapse
Order is important to me
so I can maintain control
All where it’s supposed to be
then its perfection I can extoll

Laura is hosting Poetics tonight at D'Verse
and shared with us some beautiful poems by
Eliabeth Jennings who has a very clear and
direct style of writing. So Laura has prompted
us with the word "Order" to be used as a noun.

I can relate to this. But for me OCD was a nightmare. Glad I am recovering now😊
I’m happy to hear that 🙂 Thanks for reading!
Maybe some level of OCD is a good thing… (maybe it’s the order in disorder that is needed)
Yes, you’re probably right about that Bjorn 🙂👍
ah so this prompt touched you to the quick Christine – thank you for being so open and for finding the rhymes – perhaps/collapse a good pairing and together they combine into the anxiety that prompts compulsions!
Yes I think you have that right Laura!! 🙂
Good one. OCD is good, as long as you’re in charge.
Haha! Yes indeed 🤣
Nice lines describing why some prefer order: “I happen to give a damn
as things might collapse”
Thank you Frank 🙂
Not quite OCD…but I do love the benefit of order. I can sleep better on that.
Another good one Christine.
Oh thank you Darnell! You’re so kind 🙂
I hear you, Christine.
You too Lisa? 🤣
