The onion in the fridge sobs for skin peeled
The nature of awareness is what keeps the parts fresh
It has labels for the layers that present continuous stress

Very impactful poem with the inspiration from musical chairs. It does justice with its mix of nostalgic emotions to convey the theme of depression. I like it!

I felt immersed in the world of not only chess but war. Each quatrain was a suspenseful delight. Awesome

Evokes the feeling of lost, ineptitude, and repetition eloquently and beautifully. One of the best i've ever seen. Well done!
