    my queen

    cold and heartless
    she's my queen
    she is the one
    who will crush
    all my hopes and dreams
    idle and bored
    she took a razor to her wrists
    and then had a long soak
    to wash away the stain

    A realistic touch!

    “Those who seek to satisfy the mind of man by hampering it with ceremonies and music and affecting charity and devotion have lost their original nature””

    “If water derives lucidity from stillness, how much more the faculties of the mind! The mind of the sage, being in repose, becomes the mirror of the universe, the speculum of all creation.

    No matter what lies beyond the horizon, you can always find a guiding light.

    very moving and evoked alot in me, a sign of a great piece of art.

    what i used to be will pass away and then you`ll see that all i want to know is happiness for you and me...

    You'd better do some neck exercises if you are going to carry a mill-stone like that around!
    Good stuff!
