The Decision To Love

Poem By Angharad Davies

I felt it coming
Strange monsoon
I was stretched and compressed
The heart harpoon
Pierced me
And I, voluntarily stood in its way
I chose my final resting place
Chose a body in which to lay
And I was born into your life
And taught you all you know

You chose to Love?
No, Love chose you.

Comments about The Decision To Love

Simple and true and knowing. I like this very much
very powerful ending!
Beautiful, last line so wonderful.

Sanctuary

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

That's Just The Way It Is

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

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

Untitled

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

Cherish

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