I Cannot Answer Them – Written Tuesday 3rd August 2010 (Aged 35)

I Cannot Answer Them

inside my head
when i find myself there
i am asking, is this it…
what if i meet someone else
will one person be enough
does, ‘the one’, even exist
and these crazy questions
endlessly fire off in my head
i think, do we need –
to be with someone else
is it just about having children
do i even want them
and what if i am with someone
and i fall out of love
so all these questions
fire off like mini explosions
is there more to life
what is it all about
and these questions
like voices in my head
scream at me with an echo
and i cannot answer them
