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!
I thinking about taking a hiatus from the site.
Here’s a clue.
