Eric's habit (acrostic/shape/etheree type)

by Mr. Darcy   Oct 28, 2020


ate one

leg, then, the
large purple toe;

only then, did the
wisest words of mother
erupt in his savage mind:

Eric, we may be witches, yet
nothing, but shame comes from, nail biting.

    Ah, he is flexible. The toe?

    I unfortunately have the habit of biting my nails but from my hands lol. And. That’s only when I’m overthinking. Turns out this pandemic is helping me deal with that habit. Im becoming more conscious ... I’m somehow managing to stop touching my face and of putting my fingers in my mouth (yay). I blame anxiety for that habit though.
