Twinkling flame like a blushful beauty,

Charming very idolized.

Poor moth is dancing around it,

he is in love, blind and hypnotized.

The moth’s eternal quest for warmth and companionship

is like old story of love,

sad and calamitous and agonized.


Moth thinks that she is the one,

And her love is easy to master.

Alas, falling for a reckless deceptive flame

will turn everything into a disaster.


She will burn his heart, wings and skin;

what a cruel love that attracts moth and leave him paralyzed.

No time to repent,

late for truth to be realized.
