A Riddle

  • by

Riddles that consume me
Questions that plague me
Answers that defy me
Explainations that fail

Sitting quiet
Putting down the notes
Deciding to let go of the puzzle for now
Then I become the riddle?

Why is it your turn to
Haphazardly, confusedly
Openly desperately
Open up the riddle?

Why does my heart beat different?
My tongue speak a new language?
My breathing slow?
My eyes stop looking?

Why do you feel unnoticed?
Why do you feel lonely?
Why do you feel pointless?
Can we share this riddle?

Sitting quiet
Picking up the notes
Looking at the puzzle once more
Are two heads better than one?
We try to share the riddle.

Knowing now
Answers aren't on page 22.
