I am the bitter, same as the sweet
I wonder if quitting's the same as defeat
I hear you should look, before you leap
I see nothing clearly, and nothing complete
I want to be precious, and yet I feel cheap
I am the bitter, same as the sweet

I pretend in such depth, sometimes, I sink
I feel like a fountain pen, spilling out ink
I touch and I mar, despite good intentions
I worry I'm weak or I cannot compete
I cry at the slightest of condescentions
I am the bitter, same as the sweet

I understand callouses, bruises and scars
I say I love night, without loving the stars
I dream of a world with sharp edges removed
I try, and I fail, but I never will cheat
I hope this poem is by peers approved
I am the bitter, same as the sweet

Man... this was worse than I could have imagined. Well, have at it.

It's only a tragedy after we bleed.
Your pain doesn't count 'til it's stained the sheets.

Consider it done.
This is an outstanding example of what this challenge was intended for.
It was thoroughly enjoyed.
