PECULIAR AND WONDROUS... by chryssalis PECULIAR AND WONDROUS... by chryssalis
"Men have always treated women like birds
which have strayed down to them from the heights;
as something more delicate, more fragile,
more savage, stranger, sweeter, soulful -
but as something which has to be caged up
so that it shall not fly away"

Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

what can I say other than this is yet another amazing piece. beautifully done and the expression of the cat in the back right captures the title perfectly. As for the poem,I think the cages we try to put around the things we love/admire/desire is just a reflection of the walls and barriers we keep ourselves locked behind. fear of loss is freedom's antithesis.
