Your vocab is trying to break mine. It's succeeding. WHERE ON EARTH DO YOU LEARN ALL THOSE WORDS?

Also, I concede that you and I will never agree when it comes to punctuation. Now, I HATE the saying "agree to disagree" but I'm willing to not rag you about what I think in that aspect...much. :D

I used to be rather like the person described in your poem. (In the way I interpret it, anyhow.) I liked to be dramatic and suffering partially to see if I could get attention for it (it didn't work well, no one noticed, and I generally came off as sulky) and partially because it...heh, because it seems more interesting than being happy and extroverted. That makes me think of something LeGuin said in The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas...if you've read that yet. Even after reading that story, I STILL can't relate to real joy. Of course, none of us really can, after we've grown up with all the wrong ideas permanently imprinted into our brains. But I don't care. I'm happy enough.

Ah, Pratchett. I'd recommend him just as strongly as, if not even more than, LeGuin. He is my favorite author EVER, really...no words can do him justice. He's a bloody GENIUS. He has over 35 novels, 'cause he writes constantly (yay for the rare prolific author!), most of them in the "Discworld" series. Almost all of them them are pretty good stand-alone books, but once you've read one, you'll read the other thirty anyway, SO...Anyway, my "alter-ego" Pratchett character has this thing with coffee. Long story short- I just wanted to make a joke about it. Check him out if you like satire with awesome British slang!

By the way, why do you not allow anonymous readers to review?

lovely, and all too true. it gets a little tedious in the third stanza, but the twist at the end is beautiful.

Love it. Excellent recurring metaphor.
