What I fear most is
my fomo,
and it often drives me mad,
if I live just long enough
to end up grumpy, old and sad,

sad, alone
for who loves complaints
made for breakfast,
of my fomo turned to romo
and my tears

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Review Request (Direction): 
What did you think of my title?
How was my language use?
What did you think of the rhythm or pattern or pacing?
Last few words: 
FOMO - fear of missing out ROMO - regret on missing out
Editing stage: 


It's kinda different. The definition of fomo and romo in your last words helped me a lot. Those are new words for me. This was mentally stimulating. I have a new understanding of missing out on something.. I hate fomo literally. Because of your little, simply written, packed full of imagery poem, I now hate romo. " )' Romo don't feel good. Regretting fomo makes me beat my chest in distress. ")'
I love the imagery. The title is too ordinary, but describes the theme effectively. The rhythm, flow and pacing is smashing.
