Have to agree, brilliant thread idea Zeropartii.

There's a really obvious example in Red Flag Day for anyone who's interested..

My mind was dirty.  Haha. 

One man “come” in the name of love.

You've got stuck in a man
And now you can't get out of him
What gives human life it's worth anyway? Because someone loves it? Or hates it? The flesh is weak, only the soul is immortal.
