Reason and MadnessA Poem by Lumière Déclinante
Reason and Madness went for a walk in the dark,
Searching for meaning, for light.
Feeling along jagged walls, rough floorboards,
Not knowing their lefts from their rights.
"Madness" said Reason "we cannot give up.
I no we'll find the exit soon."
And this is how they spent many years.
Lost, searching in this dark room.
Until one day, Madness gave in with a sigh
and said "Reason, this searching is wrong.
Why bother looking for a doorway to light
When this candles been burning all along?"

AboutHi :) My real name is Anna, an Irish person would hardly have the name Lumière Déclinante. In my defence, it seemed like a good idea at the time. I sort of do that a lot. Start things t.. more..
