Meanings hidden between cloaked words
Wielding a dangerous two edged sword
Able to cut when thrust downward
Equally severing upon its return

Mysteriously spoken thoughts
Obscuring definable meanings
Allowing for effective retreat
From what was clandestinely revealed

Buried beneath unknown thoughts
Rotting memories unwilling to be exhumed
Veiled between word and verse
Revealed within the dimness of poetic disguise

Sometimes it is easier to approach a subject obliquely. Allowing for other interpretation. Thus saving face for either party should there be misunderstanding or interpretation. I have always like the straight on approach myself. That way I always know where I stand instead of using assumption and wondering if I am really understood.
I do understand the above. It is called protection I think leaving space for withdrawal, a safe exit to any possible confrontation that becomes painful.

We were forced to hide, minimize, deny our reality until it has become habituated with many of us. I for one will give up the safety of that for the risk and the freedom of declaring the truth in loud outspoken terms.

Freedom 49,
Great place to be, one many of us someday hope to obtain, though on reflection to dive off a cliff without first testing the water could be viewed as fool hearty in its straight forwardness. grin
