Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow-
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.

Smoked Paprika: Damn... (forgive 18 yr old idiocy) this is the first time I've ever been reminded of my yearbook "quote"... " When I finally reach the end of the tunnel, I'll ignore the light and embrace Chaos once more".... or words to that effect.... #manyregretsbutnotaboutthatsomuch
If the stars fell:
When the low, heavy sky weighs like a lid on the spirit, aching for the light...
And when, embracing the horizon It pours on us a black day which is sadder than any night... When the Earth is turned into a dripping dungeon In which hope, like a bat, flutters blindly, And bruises its timid wing and tender head against the walls and rotted ceilings,
When the rain, stretching down its long streaks of water imitates the bars of an enormous prison,
And a silent throng of loathsome spiders come And weave their webs inside our brains...
And suddenly the bells swing angrily and hurl their hideous uproar into the sky like a band of wandering spirits,
who wail relentlessly...
And long hearses, without drums, or music move in a slow procession through my soul...
And defeated hope bursts into tears...
As the fierce tyrant anguish sets his black banner on my bowed head...
E s s e n c e: Stars, I appreciate that from the beginning of my arrival to wireclub you've been welcoming and kind to me. So my desire to celebrate the season festivities with you was, to let you know the gratitude and admiration I've for your persona and mind.
