dont let people drive u crazy if you know its in walking distance

If but my hope would return, as the seasonal winds-
and my love as the tides do,
may then my tumultuos heart
go on a' palpatating.

I like your language in this, and the metaphor. I think you could have expanded though! XD

I really love your pieces!  This one is relatable and left me wanting more. The length is part of its beauty I think.
