i really like how this is written, and i come away with emotion and vibes rather than a story, plot or explanation. I'm not sure if this is what you wanted to get accross or not, but i really like it!

Thanks!  It actually started by me picking every fifth word out of an essay I was reading and then I tried to make a poem out of it.

If you could still pick up on the emotion without a fuller story, I really appreciate that, because I was wondering if it was clear :)
