When you take a word apart,
you cut it into pieces.
When you take a word apart,
it seems so much uglier.

I love this. It's one of those things you don't know what you like about it except everything! haha

Ha! I never thought about that! But it's true. I think more of an ending, more of a final thought, could make this better though.

I like the format, and the lack of angst is quite refreshing.

Thanks guys, i appreciate your feedback! Hmm, for elaboration, i guess when we glance at words, they're just regular words. But when you really think about it, stare at it, feel it on your tongue, it starts to sound really strange. Like all these words are a cacophonous string of syllables but when we hear them so often, it escapes from our mind

Astounding really. It opened my eyes, and I never really thought of it that way. How is this not in the magazine?
