Favorite Quote:
The thing about philosophy is that it often runs dry when thought of so shallowly.

A spider speaks in dreams
Telling twisted tales
Of High Kings killing queens
And things beyond detail

The devil’s in the spiders tongue
The devil’s in my head
The devil’s smoke is in my lungs
From things the devil said

But I don’t hate the spider
For telling me I’m dead
In fact, I feel lighter
Now that my hands are red.

I've recently happened upon a sudden respect for arachnids...
They are just so... elegant, and yet they are so feared. Its really quite beautiful.
