Timing

For every question
you never ask
there is an honest answer
waiting to be revealed.
It may or may not
lie at the bottom
of an empty bottle of wine
and it might not
be high on that shelf
in the shoebox full
of old love letters
you were never meant to find,
but sometimes it’s on the tip
of my tongue—
the answer.
Just waiting for you to ask.
But you never ask.
