Is it love, loneliness, or the feeling that I may have made the wrong decision? (a poem)

Thinking about the ways I think sometimes.

You know, I might have imagined
something like that
had my imagination not decided
to hold out for a better offer

Instead, I hold every regret
a little closer than before
in hopes that something will change

Some things never change

I may have wanted to say
some of the things that were on my mind
but my mind was never sure
just what it was after

The slope of a dream wanting resolution
may be just steep enough
to raise doubts about the outcome

I think it’s going to rain

Maybe I do think too much
instead of asking the question

But if I can get to sleep tonight
it may be all right
in the morning

She sleeps, unaware
I’m awake, afraid to care

The dream is always the same…
