my thoughts are scattered

overthinking

words dig

words dig their way into my head

words dig their way into my head gnawing at the surface

words dig their way into my head gnawing at the surface waiting to breathe

their way into my head gnawing at the surface waiting to breathe falling past

gnawing at the surface waiting to breathe falling past the side expressions

waiting to breathe falling past the side expressions that were conspicuously

falling past the side expressions that were conspicuously meant for me.

desperate hope

desperate hope that once was like roses

desperate hope that once was like roses now withers on a shelf

desperate hope that once was like roses now withers on a shelf empty

that once was like roses now withers on a shelf empty snide remarks

now withers on a shelf empty snide remarks twisting their way

empty snide remarks twisting their way into my heart

snide remarks twisting their way into my heart leaving a hole.

maybe i overthink too much

maybe i overthink too much over analyzing each little thing

maybe i overthink too much over analyzing each little thing maybe i dont want to be blinded by

maybe i overthink too much over analyzing each little thing maybe i dont want to be blinded by acts of sympathy

maybe i overthink too much over analyzing each little thing maybe i dont want to be blinded by acts of sympathy or sorrow

or maybe i just want to be left alone

or maybe i just want to be left alone, with my thoughts racing on walls

or maybe i just want to be left alone, with my thoughts racing on walls while i pace a room

or maybe i just want to be left alone, with my thoughts racing on walls while i pace a room in silence.
