Why do I try?
Why do I see?
Why do I deny, 
What's right in front of me?
Why am I here?
It doesn't make sense,
Why do I fear, 
Being gated in by this fence?
Why can't I matter?
'Cause clearly I don't,
Why do I shatter, 
When I say I won't?
Why can't I trust?
Why is it so hard? 
I just feel like dust, 
Or a broken shard. 
Why do I love her?
She does not love me, 
I wish I wasn't so sure,
I just want to flee.
Why is the question,
I cannot find the answer
