Poem: The Answer.

I am the answer

To the question

Which you did not know

That you had asked.

_____________________

The question which

Floats around

In your bile and blood,

In your sweat and tears.

_____________________

The question

That circles your heart

But never quite makes it

To your tongue.

_____________________

You have sought this answer

In the eyes and embraces

Of other women.

_____________________

And now that

You have found me,

I have rendered you

Speechless.

_____________________

You have no more questions.

And why would you?

_____________________

I am your constant answer.
