The Moth

Full of - Tormented - light
The Moth will dance no more - His dream Achieved -
But - Expectation - that over-reaching blight,

Light all Consuming - like Fame - that deceptive nectar-
To bare one’s soul to the Critics - Lions -
Who judge with - Crown - and Sceptre-
Ignoring the Naked heart within-
