Why something?

Why is there something when it could be nothing?
Why is there air when it could be void?
Why is there flesh when it could be aether?

Why light instead of darkness,
Sound instead of silence,
Touch instead of numbness?

I don’t know. It might be that
There’s no reason at all
And it’s all a happy accident,
A cosmic dice cast so many times
That even the smallest probability
Becomes certainty instead.
Or it might be even foolish
To try to consider mathematics
As the reasoning for reason.
There’s just no way to answer those whys.

But I’m happy that is, without, despite a reason.
Becomes the ‘something’ allows you to exist,
And all the other senses let me feel you.
And oh, something even better than this –
It allows me to exist, allows me to feel,
And gives me a choice whether it will be
You, or someone else, or nothing at all.
For I, at least, am here.

How, When, Why

I had time to think, and came up with some questions.
I realized I want to know HOW.
How did your smile become so special to me?
How did my smile come to rely on your presence?
How did you turn from passing amusement to the locus of my tranquility?
I realized I want to know WHEN.
When did it all happen?
Was it when you made my brain go into overdrive looking for your answers?
Was it when you first made me laugh so hard I was crying?
Was it when you just looked and saw me for who I am?
I realized I want to know WHY.
Why did you have to be so much of what I needed?
Why do you want to make this so little of what I want?
Why… why you?

There are other questions, of course.
But I know better than to asks questions
That I don’t want to hear the answers to.
I don’t want to know WHO.
Whether it’s who you really are, or a person I’m making up.
I don’t want to know WHAT.
Whether it’s love, passion, fantasy, or none of the above.
I don’t want to know HOW FAST.
Whether it was so gradual it snuck up on me
Or so fast it exploded and erased the ‘before’ from existence.
And most importantly,
I don’t want to know HOW MUCH.
How deep, how mad, how all-encompassing this has become.
Whether I’m still holding onto some rational thought
Or if my heart has already run away, cuddling at your feet,
Begging to be broken for just one touch, one taste.

I don’t want the answers to those questions.
I don’t want to know how wrong I am in what I think reality is.
So I’ll just stick with HOW,
I’ll just stick with WHEN,
And I’ll just stick with WHY.

Contradiction of Love

How illogical a question could it be,
How illogical it is the never ending plea,
You, us, asking if we’d be loved still,
If we change, how we are and what we will.

I’m angry, at myself, for wanting to know this.
I don’t want any answer. I want a laugh and kiss.
Then why I ask? What insurance it is
Whatever it will be, truth or lie of his?

And, truth be told, how would he know?
As if I couldn’t lie so pretty days ago.
And why does it matter, how it could have been?
The person I am sketching, the light has never seen.

To put some other traits in the same eyes,
To put some other joys, fears and cries.
But isn’t that a whole other being than me,
Standing in the shadow, staring at the sea?

And if I’m loved, it’s me in there, not the other.
Why should the so-called creature even bother?
And why would I care, as long as I’m the same,
For the other person that only shares a name?

But people sometimes change. And they shouldn’t be made
To love the new. It’s not the same. But neither strayed.
This is why love also dies out. It also has an end.
And it is fine. If it revives, or never gets to mend.

But, on the other side, are we just too blind to see
That love is about the whole, about you and me.
Not color of the eye, not fashion and not trend.
It has every right to always do ascend.

What is a fight, a fallout of two mated souls?
It is just other growth when destiny controls.
Yes, love’s contradictory. And life is even more.
But it gives us the best that living has in store.
