The Shipwreck

Poem By Angharad Davies

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

And so with release at its tail
She will never meet us on this shore
And with freedom in her sail
The stars are her oceans forever more

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.


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
