Captivated, Elongated, Mitigated:
You're a lot of looming words,
I wish I understood.

Castellated, Estivated, Manhatten-ated,

It's always easier to hide ourselves, behind big words or silence, than let pple right in. This one is my favorite too; it's accessible and truthful. Plus...I'm a fna of big vocab. Best of inspiration, Colette
