Ivan Sokac


Shadows scare you. Shadows of restless, lost souls. You are thinking, they would hurt you. They would bring some evil to you. Then you look curiously around without knowing at what point in time to stop looking.

You know tough I am happy. I’m happy, because I can see that you see further than me. Happy because behind your eyes, under the long butterfly eyelashes, hides dreamy glance and your wet and glazy heart.

I'm happy that your anger is contained in the ice cube. It melts in the sun so it looks like it is never there.

Joy overtakes me cause you are every day bathed, like a child, by love, laughter or tears before going to rest.

I'm happy that you, for the first time, squeezed my palm forever to grow up on it.

I am happy to have you. I am happy that you are a better man than myself…


to my son Filip
