Not a soul knows the barrier between scylla and charybdis of wish bones and heart's unsatisfied need, Not the birds on the morning duty who sing a different tune from the one I composed, Not the lustful cruel cackling demons of my scared mind, Not the cosmic dying stars upon the dusky blue frozen flood, If it were a secret I bolted, I'd have been fine with standing firm in the shadows, At least then I'd have some peace and quiet from shifting morrows, If what I was doing was running, I wouldn't let sad lyrics halt me from leaving, At least I'd be certain they wouldn't matter to me whilst going, If all I wished was to stay away, I'd have been miles away with the fairies, At least they'd understand the fantasies weren't insanities.

Crocodile fish. The first time you meet it, you can easily be scared, but the platypus does not pose a threat - although it is a predator, but it does not attack people. Fish can hurt you with its spines or sharp scales. The main thing is not to approach it. Ocean Mysteries #nature #fish
