Overthink

Overthink

A Poem by Nix is typing...

Head in my hands
Frustrating
I'm sorry I've upset you
We needa work on our communicating
Wish I could make it up
But I guess the best way would be...
To go ahead and let you go to f*****g sleep
I know you're tired, 
And you don't have time to talk to me. 
I feel like such a bad girlfriend, 
So I'll just sit here and overthink 
Overthink about last year on Valentines day, 
You gave a heart full of chocolates,
Ooo, what a daring way to play
Overthink about what DUMB S**T I have to say. 
Overthink about how f*****g crazy I am about your tall a*s. 
Overthink about how fragile I am with you,
Like glass. 
Overthink about you, 
all the f*****g time, 
It's like you're stuck in my head, 
but I can't help it, you're so sublime
But your words sting 
Like a cut stung with a lime 
Alright, I feel like a dumbass now, 
I'm gonna go,
But before I do 
just know: this dumbass 
*points at self* loves you

This is top-notch writing. One of my frequent criticisms is for messages that describe one person being so hooked on another, it's like he/she has only this other person as his/her identity. I don't think its healthy to approach love this way. That being said, I can overlook my dislike for such a dependent mindset becuz you express yourself so powerfully, & you are so completely lacking in inhibitions, so dynamic & playful, it's impossible not to love this poem & adore this person who could be so completely head-over-heels about another person. Reading this, it just occurred to me that we all disagree about lots of stuff, but the best writing is so arresting, we let go of our dislikes! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Good job. Commonality is always a good theme and overthinking is definitely common.

Beautiful, as per usual. 🥺 The emotion, the stress - it's so apparent and you've captured it so nicely. As a fellow overthinker myself, I strongly relate. Our pesky thoughts and anxiety filled bodies always seem to find a way to make us find faults in everything. No matter how little or simple that may be.

This seems like a very stressful relationship, or perhaps the narrator is the one who has a stressful relationship with herself.

As an overthinker, this relates to me so much. In a world of fake smiles and fake faces, it's hard to know someone's true heart until it's seemingly too late to stop the pain train from running you down. I felt this, so well written!

As a fellow overthinker, this reads very real. You have quite the talent for capturing the grit of emotion. Only 18 and the soul of a poet, I have to tell you it doesn't get easier, just wait until you have some real s*** to feel rotted about, when your soul is full of maggots and decay because of things you do or say. Unfortunately, I can promise that will happen. A talented write here though.
