Soul of Being

Post by thief of dreams » Sat Jun 22, 2013 1:31 pm

Excerpt from 'Soul of Being'

A moth flutters against a bare bulb
Its wings dusting into the air
Self sacrifice in silence
The night it can no longer bear
"Thoughts are the shadows of our feelings - always darker, emptier and simpler."
Friedrich Nietzsche

"bare" should be "bear". One of the most missed homophones.

It's not like that in Upstate. We're a bit more conservative when it comes to that kind of thing. :mrgreen:
