rhetorical questions?

there is something about rhetorical questions that i understand;
the need to question whilst blissfully bubbling in ignorance
carving a half heart
a broken shredded heart
and a full stop in the air
and letting it hang loosely

as if the sun might become hypnotised by it
and the stars might cower
as if the sky might become traumatised by it
like a child's reaction to a shower-

MAKE IT STOP
MY EYES BURN, MOTHER!!

there is something about rhetorical questions that i understand;
the way that they linger and ground themselves upon invisible sand
as if the shore of knowledge may ponder
a question that wishes to stay unanswered.
