When Not

Comfort is best given if detached.
Love is well denoted without commitment.
Time is utterly promised in absence.
And money is wished for when it’s chiefly scarce.

Need for mercy is when guilt is your consequence.
Betrayal is graver from those close to you.
Patience is well learned when you just lost it.
Desire is rich in depths of need.

Hate is worst tasted in silence.
Regret is the best treasure after a disaster.
The fullness of fear is at the height of love.
Failure is most weighty just before success.

Beauty is fully beheld in desperation.
Life is well lived shortly.
Death is so near when your life is at its peak.
