The Shape of Your Feelings – Written Thursday 16th October 2008 (Aged 33)

The Shape of Your Feelings

i find the shape of your feelings
the texture of your emotions
i find them in my dreams
in between my fits and starts
i write a dozen romantic novels
and everyone starts with my heart
and you,
you will occupy my landscape
you can be a new town
in a pleasant valley and a lush field
i find the shape of your harvest
and the emotion that you yield
in my mind,
my fertile mind that is sometimes feral
that sometimes displays the madness
of life’s many different strands
where daisy chains do not have daisies
and the daises are your hands
i find the contours of your hold
as i did all those years ago
when we gritted out teeth
and ploughed on, through our snow
i hold on,
i hold on, determined to not let go
