Confessions Of Obsession

I am stuck in a circle of Chloe and Chanel
Wasting my money to advertise for them,
Dolce and Gabbana, Dooney and Bourke
These draw me in and force me to work
For things I don’t need, but can’t live without
I look through the magazines, the catalogues, the web sites
Tracking their price, their value, their like
I walk around and see what the other finely dressed and accessorized have,
Then almost immediately want it as well.
I don't know why, or care to find
Because if it wasn't for
Hermes
Versace
Yves Saint Lauren
Ugg
Tiffany’s
Jimmy Chu
Prada
Vera Wang
and most importunely
LOUIS VUITTON...
I wouldn’t be me, myself or I.
