[pee-kuhnt, -kahnt, pee-kahnt]–

1. agreeably pungent or sharp in taste or flavor; pleasantly biting or tart: a piquant aspic.
2. agreeably stimulating, interesting, or attractive: a piquant glance.
3. of an interestingly provocative or lively character: a piquant wit.
4. Archaic. sharp or stinging, esp. to the feelings.

I chose this word because I feel like this is what life is like. It is interesting, stimulating, but also stinging and sharp..and painful.

Here is a quote that goes with this word:

"Then, when he dies, his lifeless body
Cannot taste sweetness, feel the sharpness of pain,
Lift a hand, or be lost in reveries of the mind."

from The Seafarer (anonymous)
