The Answer to the Unknowable Why

THE ANSWER TO THE UNKNOWABLE WHY
By PoeticMeditations

The weight of your absence lies heavily
Upon this heart filled with bitter sorrow
Each passing hour a burden to endure
Unbroken, stretching beyond tomorrow

Upon the mind and soul it presses down
A crushing pressure beyond relief
Unrelenting pain that must now be borne
An oppressive stone, a smothering grief

Despair and silence, my twin companions
Forever severed by our last goodbye
Life now reduced to a single focus:
The answer to the unknowable why.
