‘Why?!’

question mark online photo

Oh, you love me so much 🙂

No? you love me no more? 😦

Search for me all the time 🙂

No, you don’t. Now, you’re gone! 😦

?

Why, oh why?

Did I hurt your heart?

Did I make you cry…?

?

I believed you needed what I had to give

You were on my side – forever in my team…

?

Did I give you too little?

Did I give you too much?

Was I being too silly?

Was I being too smart?

?

Was I being too proud?

Maybe I was too meek???

Was I too strong, or too weak??

Too bitter…?? Too sweet???

?

Was I too intense?!

Did I bore your mind?!

?

Is it about my tears? Is it about my laughter?!

Is it about ‘me before’? Is it about ‘me after’?!

?

Is it about my nose? Is it about my lips?

Is it about my arms? Is it about my hips?

Speak!!! Why don’t you speak?!?

 ?

Or Maybe…

It’s neither about what I am, nor about what I do…

Maybe it’s not about me at all – maybe it’s all about you.

Are you scared of “no”? Frightened of “not now!?”

Must the answer be “yes” every single time…?

 ??

You ask:

How many more days will I have to wait?

Why this long delay??!

The time’s not even “Now!” right now –

The time’s Yesterday!

?? 

Yet, when asked for help –

You begin to wail in Sorrow

It’s too early – not today!

The Time is Tomorrow.

 ?

Are you too strong, or too weak???

Too proud or too ‘meek’?

Are you…? Will you speak???

Your silence hurts…

Yet, it helps my freedom search

I begin to care less for whether you care…

Though,

If I hurt you somehow –

I would like to know…

Let me see through your eyes

Let me into your soul.
