    Every moth loves the moon
    Something unattainable and glowing just out of reach
    Let them come upon a chinese lantern, though
    And it is a holocaust
    Itís the flame that does them in, my dear
    Itís the tiny motor in all of us
    Driving us to desire
    I know that want will burn your flesh
    And singe your wings, small one
    Learn to expect nothing
    And you will feel neither disappointment nor despair
    I learned to stop battering myself ragged against my own desires
    I mastered both my want and my will
    Call it suppression if you please
    Your own dissatisfaction shines just like moonlight in the palm
    It is just as tangible
    Closed hands are proof against hunger
    Open hands are only illusion
    They are full of hope and nothingness
    A nirvana of misery
    My own hands curl like ashes in a fire
    In the flame of that lantern balanced precariously
    On sudden wind
    Anything could touch it
    But nothing would remain

      I see so many bits of myself here, mum. You tried to tell me not to repeat your mistakes. Like a moth to a flame! (lol, I'm still going to go to school.)

    and a bowl of capn crunch,

      - wanting is a slow burn experience.
    - singed wings make you fly funny. up and down and all around.
    - expectations always lead to disappointment and despair. which lead to heartache and pain. or somewhere in the middle.
    - finding balance is hard.

    idk. life is this process, yes? always learning something. and sometimes it's hard knocks that get us into flying around the way we do. how do you curb want and desire and find happiness in the in-between? how do we find contentment in what we have? how do we know what is real or imagined? how do we hold onto those parts of self and not get totally lost in the process? how do we accept what is right in front of us and not want more?

    nonsensical? i never make sense at all. ever. so i hope this suffices.
