Contradictory love

Black is white and, real is not

Confusion, apparent for what is lost.

All that is heard is contradictory noise,

The false receiving a round of applause.

Sorry is pain, and pain is laughter,

Time is slow but slow is faster.

Reality, a fantasy, dreams are true

The sky is green the grass is blue.

The living are rotten, the dead are alive!

Perseverance fails, and laziness strives.

Hate is numb and love is sharp,

Love is consuming, love is dark,

Poison desired, religion conditional.

Alone is crowded, empty is full.

What you fix is broken, what’s broken is whole,

What’s lost is found, what’s secret is told.

Definition is blurred, precise, unsure,

What’s forgotten remembered forever more.

Forever is halting, eternity, the end

Never again will I call you my friend.
