Complicated

It’s complicated
but then it always is,
if maybe could be yes
and more certain
I might take that risk,
why spoil the moment with
a probable no?
Besides,
she has no clue
and if I even hint
the jig might well be up.

  1. We live whole worlds in our heads. Who is to say why we decide to take that risk — or not take it? I look back on so many things and wonder why I made the decisions I made one way or another.

  10. Is it complicated, or have we made it so by over-thinking it? Think about it … but not too hard. 😉

  11. Take a risk…there are so many moments.
    One of them: I met a lady, beautiful as she could be…I didn’t phone her because I was in a relationship then. Later I learned that the lady was in mental health trouble for years.

  12. Complicated in our head, then complicated in ways people respond. One way or the other, we have to take a risk.
