I've said it before and I'll say it again:
It's not my fault that with a broken heart, I've gone this way.

In front of a mirror they have put me like a parrot,
And behind the mirror the Teacher tells me what to say.

Whether I am perceived as a thorn or a rose, it's
The Gardener who has fed and nourished me day to day.

O friends, don't blame me for this broken heart;
Inside me there is a great jewel and it's to the Jeweler's shop I go.

Even though, to pious, drinking wine is a sin,
Don't judge me; I use it as a bleach to wash the color of hypocrisy away.

All that laughing and weeping of lovers must be coming from some other place;
Here, all night I sing with my winecup and then moan for You all day.

If someone were to ask Hafiz, "Why do you spend all your time sitting in
The Winehouse door?," to this man I would say, "From there, standing,
I can see both the Path and the Way.

From: Drunk on the Wind of the Beloved

I just copy/pasted your black on black into a really dumb editor program and copy/pasted it back into the quote.   This forum platform is really smart and sees all the formatting and doesn't change it.   My dumb editor loses all that formatting.  I find that editor handy quite often when I want to copy something from out there on the web to here.

Also when you preview a post and it is all black just  highlight the text and change the color to green or pink or something.

Idk if you have reached you time limit on the edit function, but if you hit edit then change all the zeros into a different color you post will magically appear. I was going to do it, but then I decided I was was more interested in dinner.

Edit: nevermind I fixed it while eating dinner.

When you copy text from another site

 

Look in the top left-had corner of the Reply to this topic

One of the icons is a pencil eraser - middle icon, top left-hand box

 

Highlight the copied text and click on the eraser - this strips any previous formatting.
