As-if

Do I surprise you
by suddenly getting too close to you,
even when I'm far away?

Do I surprise you
when you realize
I know more about you
than you could ever imagine?

Do I surprise you
by being somehow present
at the right time and place
of your scheduled gatherings?

Do I surprise you
when you simply
cannot tell the difference
between grace and disgrace?

Do I surprise you
when you can only answer
after you have experienced me?

Do I surprise you
when you realize
I am an answer in question?
