That's Just The Way It Is

Poem By Angharad Davies

I forget that I have the capacity to feel anything
Then, You
Come silently into view,
You shake me awake.

For convenience sake
We are 'just good friends'
And yet, everyone is predicting the day of our marriage,
the names of our children.

I cant remember how to deal with Love
And those other men think I am a cold Queen
They have not seen me
Ablaze with feelings
Running naked in parks and riversides
With you.

And then you go,
To live other lives with foreign wives
Who love their cold king
And I return to no-feeling.

And that's just the way it is.

Lovely poem Angharad - an off-told story I guess and you have written it beautifully, Steve

I love the rain that fell that day
Between the pillars and the stone
We ran like charged children
Through lightening and storm

The Shipwreck

In the watery depths of my womb,
There lies a shipwreck
Its mast and frame made of you and I
It cries Freedom from within


Your love for me is now dry
In your heart, the crisp skin
Flakes fall from your mouth
And bury me


When I was young
I saw Love hanging from a bough
Like a star burning bright

The Decision To Love

I felt it coming
Strange monsoon
I was stretched and compressed
The heart harpoon
