Walking On Thin Ice

A Sonnet on the Fragility of Relationships

By Mike Singleton 🌜 Mikeydred πŸŒ›Published 3 years ago β€’ 1 min read

The title is taken from an excellent Yoko Ono song, so I will use that to lead this piece, although it is quite raucous and vicious.


Sometimes You Feel Safe, The Path Is Solid

You make assumptions, and all is OK

You trust your surroundings ,safe on the way

All is well, all is good, you let things slip


But you’re not safe,you’re walking on thin ice

Any step will plunge you to freezing depths

You need to be careful, you’ll strain for breath

In dark cold waters of the lake of life


You need to keep care for those that you love

You need to watch for the signs and the cracks

You need to not step when the ice will then break

You need to be there , lots you must think of

You need to be there , have each others backs

You can hold hands for the next steps you’ll take
