The Moth Beats Itself To Death by moejo The Moth Beats Itself To Death by moejo
I like songs about drifters, books about the same
They both seem to make me feel a little less insane
Walked on off to another spot
I still haven't gotten anywhere that I want
Did I want love, did I need to know?
Why does it always feel like I'm caught in an undertow?

The moth beat itself to death against the lights
Adding their breeze to the summer nights
Outside, water like air was great
I didn't know what I had that day
Walk a little farther to another plan
You said that you did, but you didn't understand

I've found that, a lot of times, a title of a deviation can really make it. This is definitely one of those cases.

I mean, it's still a great photo, but the title just gives it a completely different mood.

Suddenly, it's not just someone looking through a window; it feels like he's desperate, trapped, trying to think of a way to escape.

Great photo. Definitely a :+fav:!

Very nice. I like the minimalistic touch that everything is black except the main part. I think this contributes to the feeling you're attempting to make. Great work!

The way the light shows it looks like a paintbrush has come and lifted the darkness away...

Like autumn leaves
His sense fell from him
An empty glass of himself
Shattered somewhere within
His thoughts like a hundred moths
Trapped in a lampshade
Somewhere within
Their wings banging and burning
On through endless nights
Forever awake he lies shaking and starving
Praying for someone to turn off the light
