Treasure Island

Cleo Blue

(Midnight / The Dark Cloud of Angels)

A candle

A candles lights others but consumes itself

She will smile
For a while
To get you fire going
She cries
From alll the lies
That keep the wind blowing

Every one's got a secret
Everyone got their one regret
And her's is lying to herself
For so So long
Because Thats not where she belongs

She cries
From all the lies
That keep all the fires burning

A candle lights others, but consumes itself...

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
