Worlds without Love?

I knew there was an old axe down in the cellar

That is all I knew

Lizzie Borden

Lizzie Borden took an axe and gave her mother forty whacks
When she saw what she had done, she gave her father forty-one

The sounds of darkness slowly become the words of light
The uncontrollable crying becomes controlled
Instincts evolve into emotions
The being understands
The child smiles

Johnny Cash

I hurt myself today, to see if I still feel
I focus on the pain
The only thing that's real

The needle tears a hole
The old familiar sting
Try to kill IT all away  -  but I remember everything

And you could have it all  -  my empire of dirt
For I will let you down
I will make you hurt

What have I become  -  my sweetest friend?
Everyone I know
Goes away in the end

Helen Keller

So long as the memory of certain beloved friends lives in my heart
I shall say that life is good

Michael Podchlebnik

The first day that I unloaded bodies from the death-vans
I cried

On the third day I recognised the bodies of my wife and children
I placed my wife in the grave with the rest of the bodies
I asked to be killed

The German guard refused my request
He said I was strong enough to work

I was only human and I carried on
I survived

 He    –    Do you love me?
She   -    I love you 

He    –    Do you love me?
IT    –   Your word is meaningless to me

He    –    Are all of my words meaningless to you?
IT  –     Yes

He  -  Do you exist?
IT  -  You will never understand the answer to your question
     You can only reproduce

and die
