The burning ball seating proudly at the highest height, burns the stoned alley towards a home without a light.

There a nameless man lives with no living thing but himself. Surrounded by less non-breathing things, to him was left.

Once he was known as a dashing bachelor, until a deceitful woman snatched his valor.

Now he lives with almost nothing not even a shoe, well he don’t need one as he lives locked in his light-less house’s own flu.

  1. What an intriguing tale, sister. There are lighthouses, but here there is a “light-less” house (with no woman in–I mean and–a shoe). A sad unhealthy situation. A cautionary tale.

    Another word for me to learn (I thank you both for that). There is a device whose name I’ve only heard; it’s supposed to be good for those with sinuses challenges. That’s what I thought of when I saw this title. This term is so much more interesting!
