This was actually inspired from a metaphor someone used one to describe his experience in writing in a journal. It's stayed with me all these busy weeks, and now here's a two-and-a-half haiku about it. (It started out as a haiku, but I expanded it into something a little longer. Now the syllable order is 5, 7, 5, 7, 5, 7, 5, 7. You get the idea.) This may also explain it's monotony.
