Choice – Monday 21st March 2019


this is a hard choice
comfort found,
in your own voice
your own arms
have to hold you
your subconscious
it has told me
this fitting
that it should be shifting
no children,
not quite yet
but the plateaus of life
are hard to forget
this is a stubborn choice
missing the closeness of people
the close held cuddles
even when feelings transfix –
or appear more mundane
but things have to happen
and before –
they carry me off in a crate
before i hold psychics close
let’s give a chance to fate

There are many more poems from 1994 onwards at
