Open

I love how sometimes
I get obsessed about figuring something out
And get all geeked up and frustrated
Trying to find the answer
Then I get locked into some obscure
Discussion thread
And someone I don’t know
Says something to someone who
Had the same question I have
And they answer it simply,
Correctly, without any bs,
“Why do you care?” or
“It doesn’t matter.”

It makes me feel good
To know that I can recognize
When I’m overly analytical,
Sad that I get that way,
But better to get out of that kind of loop
Than go all scratched vinyl
Repeating the same notes all the time.
