As I read this, it was like a tiny voice was shouting the words in my head. This could easily become a song - a song I'd listen to. You captured the essence perfectly, and left me in awe. :) -BD

Very good conveying of inner conflict! It infects me with an enigmatic toxin that is both bitter and quite overwhelmingly sweet... This is just great beyond what I can say...
