Treasure Island

Yvonne Kania

(24th May 1970 / Mansfield, nottinghamshire)

Time moves on


Time moves on and I say nothing,
The words frozen on my lips,
Burning in my heart,
Only being able to take small sips.
I wait for the right moment,
To tell you we have fallen apart.
But there is no comment,
I leave in silence,
Knowing there will be no violence,
Slamming the door shut,
Feeling nauseous in my gut,
Crying the last tear,
Dreading of all the fear.

I

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
