    1. Oh Kristian, you are the brilliant one! Always so kind and endearing, I feel ever-so-lucky to have you as a reader, you wouldn’t believe it.
      Thank you so much for enduring my experiments, haha, it has been a true joy.

    1. They are all imperfect rhymes! People underestimate the power of imperfect rhyming, it can sound so lyrical, but also, not so overbearing and heavy.

      I’m glad you liked it!


    1. Thank you so much!
      When I write more naturally, my compositions rely heavily on inner-rhymes and imperfects, because my rhythm expands and retracts according to the intensity of the words. I should do it more often.
      I’m very glad you enjoyed it, warms my little heart.

    1. Thank you, haha. I’m not an English native and I had to self-teach myself the language, so, I always elate whenever I get complimented on language control.
      It means a lot to my little heart ❤️


    1. Thank you Sue, it is my singular poetic talent: controlling inner arcs of thought. Everything else is lacking, but improving, little by little.
      Your feedback means bounds to me.


    1. Thank you so much!
      All my poems are meant to be read aloud;
      The verse arrangement of this one would make it hard to fully sing (verse breaks akin to those of Uneasy Romance with Mayhem are more easily singable), but it is a great sign to me that you can picture this as a song.
      Melodies have a levity that text cannot provide, and if I can capture that levity, a whole world opens up. Again, thank you tons!
