Possessive: adjective, demanding someone’s total attention and love
Noun: a word (other than a pronoun) used to identify any of a class of people, places, or things; or to name a particular one of these.
I have often thought about the notions of jealousy and possessiveness in relationships, and the way some people will use a relationship status as an excuse to control another person. For example, I have lost count of the number of times I’ve been having a casual lunch with friends and their phones haven’t stopped pinging. Their partners just checking to make sure they’ve arrived; just checking to see who is there; just checking to see how much longer lunch will be….
It might sound romantic to have someone that into you…and to imagine them pining when you’re not around, but seriously it’s probably an early warning sign of the coercive control they intend to have.

The possessive noun Tell me what I want to hear Your dreams and secret fears I want to crawl inside your mind To prod and probe whatever I find. No answer will ever be right enough When I don’t feel it in your touch. Tell me what I want to hear My hand at the tiller to steer I want to take us on a journey I will set the scene, tell the story Tell me what I want to hear That you are only whole when I am near Tell me what I need to hear.
