What is happening. No question mark because it feels like a statement. As if there’s no answer to be sought but just a simple declaration to be uttered—what is happening.
I miss so many things. I miss so many people. But none of it seems to matter anymore. These are all statements. I miss you. No question mark because it’s merely a statement and there won’t be an answer from you. It’s just a simple utterance, anyways.
Then there are the people who seem to be angry that life is moving along, that your life has to move along, that you can’t do anything but move along with life, and they’re angry because you aren’t there (why aren’t you there.) when you should be there. But they’ve forgotten that life moved along and when you went that way because that’s where you were supposed to go, they went the other way because they chose to. Then they don’t understand why you didn’t jog after them. Why were you not there, anyways.
Then there’s the grade on the paper you received back. The creative writing paper. What is happening. Your characters weren’t developed enough. You knew this but you still turned it in because you were writing at 4 a.m. and you knew an ending had to come so you forced it to come. The characters weren’t done yet though. I mean, what were you trying to do, anyways.
Then there was the midterm. Oh gosh, let’s just forget the midterm. Why didn’t you study more, anyways.
So many unuttered non-questions. So many things at the back of your head making you question statements. And making statements into questions. (ex. You like to write. Wait, do I? Do I really like it?)
What is happening.
So, I’m sitting here typing. Wondering what words and syntax and punctuation can do. The answer: so many things. Yet, they still ask me what English majors do. What do we do. Haha, no question mark because that doesn’t deserve an answer.
