I read too much in the silences
the words unsaid between the lines
Can’t you see the heart worn on this sleeve?
Hanging on this thread from your web of indecision
while you ponder what to take and what to leave.
There was no “quid pro quo” offered,
— no ‘if; thens’ —
…and only I expected otherwise,
over-thinking things again.
