The Moth

The Moth short poem

Velvety fur so soft and smooth,
Brown wings of hope clinging to the truth;
It’s hirsute body glowing in the plethora of the fire,
The moth flies an inch closer;
Wings of fire, it still flies,
An evanescent memory of the moth lies…

The moth is drawn to fire as I am drawn to you.

The mischievous proboscis; feeling the unfelt,
Myriad compound eyes, watching you with all it warmth;
The opulent display on its wings symbolizes brazen thoughts,
I watch the creature as it circles it’s death;
It’s tiny body throwing a penumbra against the fire,

The moth is drawn to fire as I am drawn to you.
