186 – Overkill

There’s
A slight problem
With having
An overly inquisitive
Mind.

Your first
Instinct
During most
Interactions
Is to decipher
The hidden meanings
Behind every
Subtle gesture.

More often
Than not
Your analysis
Turns out to be
A complete
Overkill.

While you were
So busy
Trying to unravel
The mysterious layers
Of her smile,
You fail to notice
All she really wanted
Was for you
To smile back.
