    Walking Contradiction (as Green Day put it)

    I like cleaniness, but I hate cleaning,
    I like winning, but I hate seeing people lose,
    I like peace, but I hate silence,
    I like order, but I hate routine,
    I like choice, but I hate decisions,
    I like to get to know people, but I hate conversation,
    I like help, but I hate being open,
    I like solitude, but I hate lonliness,
    I like company, but I hate people,
    I love life, but I hate living.


    this is a collection of my thoughts and emotions over the last couple of weeks, i'm just a bit stressed and need to sort my head out

    does this work as a poem? i tried to make each line progressively darker, did that come through?

    I like it a lot! It definitely works for me and it did come through, I hate poems that rhyme.

    However I hope you're not truly feeling all of these things but that they represent some of the feelings you have about moving away.

    To follow your theme; the poem compelled me to reply yet in general I'm apathetic toward poetry.

    I thought it was pretty good.


    Could have it wrong, but it kind of sums up life doesn't it? Full of contradictions, both within ourselves and in everyday life?

    But yes, I guess that's correct.

    It must be good.

    Coz he's an accountant.


    Now that would have worked a lot better if the first letter of your impression of my profession didn't require an appending of the indefinite article.

    It took me a while to get it

    That's enough talk of sacrificing accountants.

    There was holy hell to pay recently at the merest hints of chastising chavs and the warming of a Wiccan.


    Btw,
