Mixed Messages

(Quatrains)

Mixed messages on this site abound.

It’s filled with drastic ups and downs,

With glowing reviews and six sweet stars,

Then insulting results from contest tzars.

.
It’s not so much, I didn’t win,

But it hurts not to even get a mention.

I grimace as the tally totes,

‘Cause it’s painful when you get no votes.

.
I read the winners every time

Comparing every line to mine .

I search to find distinguishing clues,

But it only seems to give me blues.

.
What great excitement to get a fan!

But, they disappear like sifting sand.

I get depressed as the ratings cool,

And begin to think that I’m a fool.

.
I started with such great anticipation,

Excited with each new participation.

My disappointments are getting sore.

Not sure I can take this anymore!

Here’s a clue.


Yes, that picture is me.
