What Kind Of Answer Would I Need?

-

When I sit back and let the giggles

__come out of my mouth

____I get weary

______and so full of trouble

I get tortured from time to time

__bored sick out of my mind

____just laughing my thoughts out

______while eating a salted cheddar cracker

The music of my machine

__walks closer than usual

And I ask not "why?"

Yet

__I drip like the rusty water

____that drips from a hot air balloon

______that takes me away

________as clear as day

But in front of my super market trolley

I hit a wall

Close to lunch time

I thought to myself

While sitting there still

None of my thoughts made sense

So

__with all thee intensity left in my mind

I closed the box of junk food

__and escaped back into my misery

Heaven stepped on my head

I fell

I went forth to know why

But why should I know?
