all my why's and what for's

if they care to ask me how i feel
i feel wary and watchful
i feel something heavy going down
and no one will explain it
its energy will suck the life out our lives
leaving numbness or dread to replace it
will the other shoe ever drop?
i long to hear the sound of it
i want to feel its reverberation in my bones
i want it to consume me
like water from a clear and silent pool
consumes the quiet riverbank around it
when a stone falls in from high above
but their silence is the same as it ever was
like a giant heavenward hand
holding the sword of unexplained action
high above my head
leaving me feeling as if
all my why’s? and what for’s?
are undeserving of an answer

all my why's and what for's
