Is but an emotional state

Caused by the inability to create

To compute and calculate

Or let imagination

    This reminds me of a joke/quote from a new show my friends and I are watching. It is titled "The Good Place" and the quote is coming from a demon, "You humans have too many emotions - you only need two: anger and confusion!"

    Despite the capitals of every line - which honestly is just my taste, this actually felt confusing and interesting and the style worked in your favor, as did all of the precise words you chose.

      No? we need 4!

      Anger, confusion. love and sometimes hatred.

      I understand hatred is not one we should wish to have. Then again It's necessary at times.

    I loved the concept of the flawed diamond and the many other possibilities that it poses. The shape too is brilliant. Best wishes Milly x

      Hey Mills

      The diamond is a symbolic of us.

      None of us perfect, but perfectly imperfect.

      Sorry for the slow reply.

      Hope you are OK! Although I've not logged in for a while things still filter through.
