Damnable thoughts

The curse of overthinking
is not failure,
misfortune or limitation
but in the disobedient
misery you cannot climb.
No pleasing in the paranoids
dive to the oil pits.

The more you prevent
the less interfearence,
but when it comes up
it brings cutlery
to sicken and harvest you,
the 9th eternity caused by lingering whisper.

    We are all damned by our own thoughts sometimes. Can we think too much? Some things need much thought, but prevarication can be a curse in itself. An intriguing write, with strong imagery. A poem about thoughts to really think about!
