It's not a lie, not do I lie, just a rare truth
Is not even that I like it when you cry

    when you cry I smile,
    when you ask I retract,
    when you hug I am idle,

    the last stanza is poetically sad and true...that is what we are doing to other human being....
    well done dear Kelvin Owusu..keep it up..

    just a door, suicide, life on one side and we know not what on the otherBut the choice is something, maybe the
    only thing, we have control over.When we loose that choice there is nothing left to live for.....and we walk through
    that door......and shut it

    A guilty love of holding power over someone who has lost self worth. The attraction to someone that for some reason you feel ashamed of, (like a natzi over a Jew but not quite thet extreme) That is what I get from this interesting read. (Report) Reply

    This is one piece which I need to reread to get the gist of the whole thing. I am going out and I will reread this when I come back. Take care. You are really productive with three entries at one time. Great creations. (Report) Reply
