"He who fights with monsters might take care lest he thereby become a monster. And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you." -Friedrich Nietzsche, Aphorism 146 from 'Beyond Good and Evil'

I was reminded forcibly of this quote while reading 'Mirror of Shadows'-analyzing poetry is a hobby of mine, and I could probably (quite easily) write a decent length paper on the sheer amount of strength and pyschology in this piece. Cheers! My favorite line? The last.

And since you so kindly offered (in your profile)... would you mind taking a glance at one of my poems?

Love it. No other way to put it. You have a way with words, Matt, and always have. Excellent!

I couldn't sleep, so I thought I'd review things. Well, now I might as well not go back to bed, because this is going to keep me up all night. The imagery and word choice are so well done that I can't help but be sucked in... awesome work.
