agreed on the first stanza with synth. i am not crazy about the second either, especially the last line. it's too obvious for my taste, with the title and all.
agreed on the title. I think you could do some cool things with the title and second stanza. A new title could really transform this piece. I really love what you're doing here with flow, content, and line breaks though, keep it up.
Last line.
