Favorite Quote:
Do you know the only value life has is what life puts upon itself? And it is of course overestimated, since it is of necessity prejudiced in its own favor. [You] do not lose anything, for with the loss of yourself, you lose the knowledge of loss.


Ethereal heights,
wafting a crimson flavor
through my enlightened eyes,
bestowing waves of warm darkness
following their more colorful counterparts.

Chivalrous you are, oh knight,
who so easily slays the many dragons
that accumulate in my ragged chest
And the ogres gathering within my mind.

How you resemble autumn,
in year and life,
just before the utter coldness.

Oh night, how I love thee and thy spectral freckles
glowing on thy darkened face.
