Ignorance is not an excuse

I saw dark smudges under eyes,
never questioned obvious lies.
Didn't ask. Didn't tell. Abuse -
ignorance is not an excuse.

He withdrew, disappearing and
fading, like already his hand
had tied rough rope into a noose.
Ignorance is not an excuse.

Clear symptoms in his eyes, habits,
moods, attitude, and behaviour…
Just a phase, not symptoms of use.
Ignorance is not an excuse.
