A Question! ! !

I asked myself a question,
Thought, there would be an answer,
A definite and an exact one,
One, only one I asked for…
But, there were plenty,
Each one, to dwell upon,
The first time, the clause was,
If you don’t want, it wouldn’t happen,
Satisfaction, never heard of it,
I inquired myself again,
My heart parting shot yes,
Though, my head said the opposite,
Why? Wasn’t it all me?
If so, why did I fail to give an answer….
I interrogated my heart this time,
Wanting an elucidation,
If yes, wouldn’t it be appropriate?
Love, not lust, not forbidden,
Then why not, said my heart,
Was that the answer I wanted?
Was it just another question?
In complete puzzlement, I was…
Virginity, irreplaceable, beyond price,
Once gone, irretrievable
Counterclaimed, my head…
Loaded with options, but a wisecrack,
All I desired,
