Suicidal Lies Poem by Kelvin Owusu

Suicidal Lies

Rating: 3.9

I Said hi when I meant goodbye
It's not a lie, not do I lie, just a rare truth
Is not even that I like it when you cry
Just an uncontrolled smile

You hurt, I create
You suspect, I evade
You react, I sustain
You walk, I reclaim

Left you hanging,
A noose round the neck
A river flow, blood red
Joys torment,
A gentle push
Cliff dive

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.

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..

The last stanza soars before leap fatal, insightful and intriguing.
