Short Poems

1. “The Mind’s Vortex”
A spiral of thoughts
Round and round they go
A cyclone of worry
How can I let go?

2. “The Endless Query”
What ifs and maybes
Cloud my every thought
Questions without answers
Leave my mind distraught

3. “The Rabbit Hole”
One thought leads to another
A tangled web of fear
I keep falling deeper
What if I never clear?

4. “The Overwhelming Weight”
Too much to process
My mind feels like a weight
The burden of overthinking
I can’t escape the gate

Medium Poems

Poem One: “The Prison of Overthinking”

My mind is a prison of swirling thoughts,
Trapped in a maze of endless fears.
I overanalyze, I doubt and I fret,
Living in a constant state of tears.

I replay conversations over and over,
Picking apart every single word.
I worry about the future, what it may hold,
My anxiety an incessant bird.

I wish I could silence the noise in my brain,
And find a way to break free.
But the walls around me are too high to climb,
Trapping me in my misery.

So I drown in my overthinking,
A victim of my own design.
Until I find a way to escape,
My mind will forever be confined.

Poem Two: “The Weight of Overthinking”

Each day I carry a heavy load,
A burden that weighs me down.
The weight of my overthinking,
A constant presence that’s always around.

It’s like a rock that I can’t shake,
An unwelcome friend in my mind.
It follows me wherever I go,
And leaves me feeling confined.

I worry about things big and small,
From the future to the past.
I dwell on every little detail,
Until my thoughts become a vast.

I long to let go of this heavy weight,
To find some peace of mind.
But until I do, I’ll keep on carrying,
This burden of overthinking intertwined.

Long Poems

The Weight of Overthinking

I lay awake at night, lost in thought,
The weight of my worries is all I’ve got.
I analyze each moment, each conversation,
Endlessly ruminating on every situation.

My mind is a maze of doubts and fears,
A never-ending cycle that always appears.
I overthink the past, the present, the future,
My brain never stops, it’s a constant torture.

I wonder what could have been,
If I made different choices, if I had seen
The signs that now seem so clear,
If I hadn’t let my fears interfere.

I worry about what’s to come,
If I’m ready, if I’m strong,
If I’ll be able to face the challenges ahead,
If I’ll find the path where true happiness is spread.

I second-guess every decision I make,
Trying to find the perfect way, the perfect take,
Afraid of making a mistake, of being wrong,
Overthinking until the night is gone.

But as the sun begins to rise,
I realize that overthinking is my kryptonite,
It steals my peace, it drains my soul,
And it doesn’t make my problems less bold.

I need to let go of the weight,
Of the burden that keeps me up too late,
To find a way to calm my mind,
To leave my worries behind.

So I’ll take a deep breath, close my eyes,
Let go of the past and embrace the sunrise,
I’ll find the beauty that’s around,
And let it fill me, lift me from the ground.

The weight of overthinking will no longer win,
For I know deep inside, I can begin,
To see the world with a new light,
To love my life, to hold it tight.

The Constant Chatter

My mind a constant chatter,
As thoughts go round and round,
A never-ending pattern,
That I cannot seem to drown.

I worry and I wonder,
About things both big and small,
I overthink and analyze,
Until I hit a wall.

The what-ifs and the maybes,
They swirl inside my head,
A never-ending dance,
That keeps me up in bed.

I second guess every decision,
And fear that I’ll be wrong,
I analyze each interaction,
And wonder all day long.

Did I say the right thing?
Did I make a mistake?
I worry about the future,
And the chances I might take.

My thoughts get overwhelming,
And my anxiety takes hold,
I struggle to stay grounded,
And to keep my mind on hold.

I try to stay in the present,
To take things day by day,
But my thoughts keep on spinning,
And I feel like I’m in a haze.

I wish I could stop the chatter,
To find some peace at last,
But instead I keep on thinking,
And wonder what’s to pass.

So I’ll keep on analyzing,
And second guessing every move,
Until one day I find the calm,
And the chatter starts to soothe.
