What do you think ails me, or is it just not me alone, is it us, or is there even any us, where do we stand, alone, or together,

What do you think ails me, love or fear, is one the cause or both an unavoidable eventuality of this existence, we call life,

What do you think ails me, that long whisper in my ear, I should have forgotten by now, or the silence I am sinking in, everyday now,

What do you think ails me tonight, what do you think you can say, I won’t expect an answer, I know what you would mean anyway,

I know the truth, or so I think I know, I know what ails me tonight, and I know what is the cure,

What do you think ails me tonight, my dear, tell me true, 

My knowledge of this human soul,
or my deep ignorance,

Of what I know…
