They Simply Don't Know

They hear me sigh,

See me cry and wonder,

Only wonder why,

I feel so broken.

When nothing bad

Goes on or happens,

But I still feel the same.

The same emptiness

That spirals me down,

Down, down the cliffside.

I’ve tried to spin words

To feed them understanding,

Though they keep demanding

An explanation they can fit,

File under feelings, they clearly

Have never tasted.
