I've Gone Too Far


Some things are too simple
to understand,
lines too straight to walk,
air too pure to breathe:

warm milk before bedtime,
a dead goldfish,
a vagabond drinking Sangria
in the shade of a
telephone pole,

over thinking is
an incurable disease
caught by sitting
in rows of plastic chairs.

I feel sick.

    

Keep flying to the sun with these gargoyle wings.

I have OCD myself...over thinking everything until theres nothing...or until my brain hurts, and I can't sleep...

Thinking...thinking...
