MAYBE

Maybe I am overthinking things
go too deep
down
where I suspect the truth is
lying watching
waiting to attack me
like
a crocodile
in this swamp of lies
Maybe I stop thinking

and get away...

Great write and as per usual over thinking tends to take away the natural essential ability of words of great means that say things far beyond life as we know it. Thanks for this poetic sharing.

I like this phrase:

"where I suspect the truth is
lying . . . "

I liked the simile of the crocodile, it is so like that, the thinking mind waiting to snap - a good one!

Over think
Under think
Not thinking
Is the rub
