The Real Secret

by on January 26, 2020 :: 0 comments

Life is nothing
but the striking
of a match
in the darkness.

Being enamored
with the flame
doesn’t make it
any more than it is.

It’s just a little fire

Which can be beautiful
but it’s still only a
temporary respite
from the dark.

Nothing to
fall in love with,

unless you’re crazy.

But I’ve been
crazy before…

haven’t you?

Yes, we have! Pardon me, do you have a light? – mh clay
