The Origin of the Eroteme

I am not the answer.
I am simply another question(?)
a receptive sickle cropped, poised above a full stop.

I am not a percontation(⸮)
Sarcasm has never been my strong point.
For too often have I been stung by the lash of a sharp tongue.

Often I have given in to the exclamation (!)
Forgetting that a soft answer turneth away wrath,
But I am learning to be a gentler soul with myself
and the world as a whole.

I have grown a fondness for this punctuation.
It has become a dear friend.
Questing words find me resting even more within the questions.
