The movement in this piece was wonderfully portrayed. It felt as though I read this in the time it took me to take a deep breath and I felt both lighter and heavier for having done so. The comparisons of this person's love of whatever kind to a cigarette were incredible because even though comparing love or lovers to anything you are dependent on is becoming overdone, it still had personality and a uniqueness to it that allowed for this piece to stick with me even after I had read it and the other pieces nominated this week.
Bluejay, thank you for this comment. The first time I read it upon winning made me feel so wonderful as it still does several months later. I really appreciate you taking the time to break down how you feel about it. Thanks again. (:
