Favorite Quote:
“It is not work that kills men, it is worry. Work is healthy; you can hardly put more on a man than he can bear. But worry is rust upon the blade. It is not movement that destroys the machinery, but friction.”

-Henry Ward Beecher

The dark depth of the hunter’s pupil,
Entrances the crystalline prey,
To abandon clarity,
And venture into the billowy mass of murk.

The slick cloak so searing,
Not even stars could break its embrace,
It snarls at the light,
The wail driving off innocence,

But contrasts the grotesque dark with a menacing beauty,
Its icy angles melting into a hypnotic melody,
That inundates your ears,
Pulling you into its stale elegance

The author's comments:
Melagrit was the result of the invention of my own color.
