Here I go . . . again

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.

  1. I like the tone and feel of this. I'm forever overthinking things too.

  2. Love that first line... and I often fill it in with the wrong things based on my own worries...


Thank you for reading my poetry and sharing your thoughts.
