Why

December 8, 2008

Why.
A three letter word.
Wondering.
Hoping.
Yearning.

Wondering.
Wondering why you left
Wondering why you lied
Wondering why you promised those things

Hoping.
Hoping you would change your mind.
Hoping you would come back to me.
Hoping you would realize what you did.

Yearning.
Yearning for your touch, your voice, your breath.
Yearning to hear you laugh, to hear you say my name again.
Yearning for…you.

Why.
A short, three letter word.
Why.
It can ask so many questions, yet most…
are never answered.
