Know Not Why?

Not of his nature
to be quiet,
he keeps aloof
for reasons unknown.

He teases with a mock,
humiliates with pleasure
displaces anyone
with an ease.

Egoistic and pungent
he is haughty , overthrows
belittles even the smartest,
turns quiet all too soon.

Has he mellowed? I ask.
Is he caught in between?
I ponder for a while.
I find no answer.

Setting aside my deliberations,
I go about my way as though
unconcerned. Lo! his scathing
remarks and jibes do not
allow me to sit in peace.
