I Don't Know Why
by FE Dec 8 2010
You stare at me with accusing eyes,
waiting for me to explain myself,
to tell you why I do, all these things I do.
But I remain quiet,
not a word escapes my lips.

“Say something! Say anything!”
What can I say?
How can I explain what
I myself don’t understand?

And whisper a single quiet phrase.
“I don’t know...”
I don’t know why I do what I do.
I don’t know why I think what I think.
I don’t know why. I don’t know why.
"I don't know why..."
