    Wouldn't it just be easier
    to just ask?
    No, you figure it's better
    to take on the mega task
    Of trying to figure it out
    on your own
    Listening to others spin yarns,
    then solving the puzzle all alone

    Problem is, there's always
    gonna be one piece missing
    Like the reason why Georgie Porgie
    even thought about all that kissing
    Or how come Who stayed on first, Watz is
    always second, and I Don't Know is on third
    It wouldn't be easy, but I'd try to enlighten you
    as to every ill informed story you ever heard

    But you won't ask

    I guess you just figure I'd lie or
    not tell the whole story
    But I'd tell you, no matter how
    embarrassing the details, or how gory

    Wait a minute...

    That's actually not the reason why...
    You won't ask because you might actually
    find out why, that's the true alibi
    You'd hear logic and reason
    then be forced to deal
    with each and every feeling
    that you know is real

    You don't own the rights
    to the word, emotion
    I'm filled with emotion too,
    brimming with love and devotion
    Such that you have probably
    never experienced so intensely
    The weight of which is difficult to bear
    it's grown so immensely

    My shoulders are so tired, and so
    is my heart
    Geez, this is the part
    That makes me well up with tears
    So I'll just end this by asking you,
    Wouldn't it just be easier,
    to ask?

    You would say so too? Glad you're feeling me here Rich, thank you.
    I think it's both what you ask, and to who as well. Yes, we communicate wonderfully, :) awww. In being quiet, sometimes we can discover things that we can't amid all the noise. Thank you So'ja.
    Thank you HopelisRomantic, that sure is the truth sis.
