Overthinking

Overthinking, By Peter Wyn Mosey

Overthinking.
It's that sinking
feeling, shrinking
windows of opportunity 
commitment becomes a scarcity
my motivation in mutiny
there is no sense
I'll be sat on the fence
can't think in present-tense
because I overthink.

  1. I love this because it speaks to me in such a truthful manner. I overthink so much that at times it is hard to believe in my own writing to the point where I don’t trust myself that it is any good. Over thinking, I can’t help but wonder if that is something all artist do. I love the painting that you chose to help visualize your words.
