Ian Curtis
As I closed the door
behind me sat 
the ghost of myself.

As usual
it wouldn't talk.
It just stared.

I offered my heart,
but it was too scared
to take it.

I offered my brain,
but it was too simple
to accept.

I offered my courage
but it was too cowardly
to even look.

I offered my home
but it was far too lost
to acknowledge.

I offered my life
and it took it all the way
to the other side.

Ian Curtis, English singer-songwriter, died today in 1980.
