Flags - did you write that?

I did write this one yes ma'am.

There's a lot of things I like about it: the squirrel, the housecat, the way wronged and strong rhyme (and grail, attain, assail) (and all those hard b's in the third stanza), because restraint is hard and you bite your lip.

It sounds a little unrequited, if it weren't for the embrace!

ahh the embrace. Have fun flags.

It's about unequal love, not unrequited.

Thanks lil

At the end of the day, is there a difference between unequal and unrequited?

Yeah I think unequal is a lot worse and more destructive
