egg shells
iano Jun 2020
egg shells
like bells
in a silent world

eyes shut tight

beyond the window
birds have eggs
     in their open
life

yet egg shells must break
risk must take

for life's
sake

I have never been the victim of domestic abuse. I have however seen my nearest and dearest suffer.

Everyone Loves You
iano May 2020
Everyone loves you
at first light

Then expectation
births boredom

Its a cruelty
we cant help

i can only tell
on its passing

when it is
a boiling stillness
its the safest way

We share
The same blue paint
On our creating hands
My love for her
Is the truest thing
I know

Remember

Remember
Back then
Way back when
When we were young
And the world was new
When we were young
Way back when
Back then
Remember

There have been
Times

I have felt
Unable

Unworthy

To live
Or die

Death
You beautiful *******
  To do for life
what life cannot do

Without Song
iano May 2020
Its not that I never knew
The fearless truth
I just let her go
In my need for proof

She used to fill my days
And weave my dreams
But answers for critics
Won me over it seems

I panic now
My memory has lost her face
The facts of life sit without song in her place

So I walk the world
Knowing more and more
But without her courage
And increasingly unsure
