An Unanswered Question

by Stephen Paden

We talked for the first time in a while
and when I heard your voice
my heart fell through the floor

It felt awkward at first, but after a time
it felt like it had in the past
so many times before

But you asked me if I was okay
and followed it immediately with another question
that made me laugh

The first one went unanswered
like so many questions I’ve had since you left;
left me alone on this path

I wanted to say no, I’m not okay
every day has been hell
but hey, the cat is still loud

And that I will always be your friend
I don’t make them easily
and I don’t like crowds

I will always be your friend
I will always be your friend
