Thinking - Poem by Eric Pennington

I think daily what I have to do to achieve happiness,
I wonder why, why it has to be like this.
I think of how things get so confusing,
I go to my quiet place, and begin musing.

I think why I have to go through such torture,
I wonder why all I ever do is think about her.
And what it is that I do so wrong,
I think, think hard and long.

Is it because I care too much?
Or maybe I just don't have that touch.
Is it that I come on too strong?
I really wish I knew what I do wrong

    You have made your point well, but have you consider listening to what she may be thinking too. Good piece Eric, worth 10. (Report) Reply
