untitled…

tentative, very unsure…

apprehensive, at best…

silver linings? who knows…

unanswered questions…

answers in the form of a question…

often times deflected…

mostly ignored…

one of a thousand things…

that are never discussed…

let alone acknowledged…

uncomfortable, antsy…

unable to sit down…

round and round…

wearing a hole in the floor…

spinning mental wheels…

palpitations, missed respirations…

sweating bullets…

dizzy, clammy, nauseous…

unable to think of food…

since eating that slimy salad…

remembering elicits gag reflex…

throbbing headache…

ocular migraine…

sight in left eye goes…

how much longer? no one knows…

if they do, they’re not telling…

keeping it quiet, under wraps…

no response expected, none given…

after being asked an uncomfortable question…

time is required, for answer to be framed…

as to not distress the questioner…

or, as it was reframed, “not hurt,”…

“not hurt” who? that’s the question…

or maybe, that was the answer…

or perhaps both.
