The Trick

Poem By Angharad Davies

Sometimes I can make myself invisible,
It's true,
All I need is you:

First, tie me to those words, you know I love to hear;
I will lisisten, spellbound then blur
Into distant echoes.

Now place your hand accross my mouth
I am silenced.
Press down on me
I sink into the grass, into the Earth

Look up to the Sky
See how those clouds circle and sway
All those individual colours merge into one

Now watch as I disappear
Watch, and I disappear
Watch
Disappear


It's a trick you see,
But i don't know
If it's on you
or me.

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

The Decision To Love

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