Too Much (Poem)


It's been a long day,

yet, I can't sleep;

as soon as I lay my head down

millions of thoughts race through my mind

not allowing me to breathe,

when I truly need to,

so, here I am trying to shield myself from the cold air.


I know I think too much,

shirk away from everyone's touch,

yet, I crave it,

making me feel like an outcast

cause I don't know how to tell anyone what I'm thinking.


What is it that I need?

Because there's something missing from me,

and I cannot put my finger on it;

maybe I just think too much,

maybe I overthink,

maybe I need to sleep,

to let my brain take a break

so I can remember what I lost.
