The moon shown bright
like heavens door
as shadows dance slowly
on a southern shore
flames burn hot
forever entwined
consuming passions
of the mortal mind
daunting treasures
the folds of flesh
the stickness of
a warming breath
musk hangs thick
on still night air
as beads of sweat
drop from your hair

"I shall cast no shadow"

Ignis aurum probat, miseria fortes homines.

Fire tests gold, but calamity tests strong men.

Yes, it is their motto. In fact, I stole it from them, though I do not meet their 99.997th percentile IQ qualification to be a member. :) Only 1 person in 30,000 does, though, so I don't feel too terribly bad about that.
