Wondering Wednesday Presents: What Drives a Moth to the Flame?

What is it that drives a moth to the flame?
Is it the beauty? Or is it the pain?
Is it seduced by the warm embrace of the fire--
Propelled to touch by some burning desire?
Or does the danger play a part?
Does the bliss of agony entice its heart?
To kiss the fire but escape the flame
and dance with death some other day?
Or is it not the thrill which calls it near?
But rather drawn to light by fear?
Is that the way a moth's heart is--
That it flies to the flame to flee the darkness?

      1. I just realized the mobile view cuts off the ends of the lines, but you can scroll sideways. Not sure how I feel about that feature at all, I think most people won’t try that.

        It’s also not Courier on my phone…oh well I tried something new and that’s how I learn! Glad you find it appealing at least 🙂
