To give hope,
Taking it away before it is truly enjoyed.
To speak ill words with a smile,
Taking but a little while to face the truth.
To bring moment of tenderness,
Summoning it towards its unknown resolution.
To bring excitement in a sentence,
Directing it before having time to take it back.
Wonderful qualities that a human being inhibits.
Why else can a lie survive to be used on another?
