Overthinking

Overthinking

A Poem by Alias

You went on a date.
I think,
It's only one date,
maybe it didn't even go that well.
I think,
maybe this means now,
you're in the mood for dating.
I think.
you didn't bring her back,
so maybe that means something.
I think,
you fucked me, not her
so maybe that means something.
I think,
you asked her, not me
so maybe that means something.
I think,
I can't stop thinking about you
But
I think,
I want to.

pause for thought...love the longing in this...but also that back and forth---i want you, i don't, you want her, you don't, i'll settle for second best, i won't--

i want you to want me...as Cheap Trick sang...
i'd love you to love me...

love the ending...perfectly adding symmetry to the piece.

Simple. Witty. Ends sensibly. Unpredictable. The combative nature of heart and mind. The swirling of chemicals as our emotions boil and bubble only to end in mystery.

Interesting internal conversation my friend. Did you receive a final answer? I like the twist of language leading to hopeful ending. Thank you my friend for sharing the amazing poetry.

Its a tragedy of love that your brain gets messed up in confusion. let me rephrase - its a tragedy of pre-love. Love your words.
