Love will tear us apart, again

my friend, Ian Kevin Curtis

(15 July 1956 – 18 May 1980)

strode up those stairs, so long ago,

and still, your voice pumps out

in all its brittle beauty

leaving the depression

and the epilepsy behind

telling us what love will do

how, precisely it will tear us apart

some will listen and never know

the man you were

me? I cannot abide the way

you hid the man you were

 - you have been gone

too long, Ian, but, still, the song.

tears us apart, again.

A soul deep in reflection John.

I suspect an even deeper longing, lovingly remembered.

Poignant words.
