     Interest Introduces
Curiosity’s Curse.
Shyness Showers
Love with Loneliness.
Hoodwinked Hope,
Decorated with Desire.
Panoramic Panic and
Jeering Jealousy
Develops into Depression.
Disgust and Disappointment
Feed off of Fear.
Humiliation is Hushed.
Reason? Rejection.
Embodied with Emptiness,
Confounded and Confused.
Happiness Hardened,
Heart Helpless
