A Letter from a Fall

This poem was written to my late partner Antony in June 2001 shortly after we met. Although we were only together for two years, before he died he still left me with a beautiful son and daughter. This is just to prove that every word that was written then still means the same today.


I never feel so private, as when I know you are here,
An unexpected naked mind, with only one fear,
Increasingly besotted with you, I fail to resist,
Your innocent eyes, and lustful kiss.

I fear with you my eyes will always silently drip,
Under the hypnosis of your mental tyrinnical grip,
I've never let anyone break my surface,
Which I immediatley appropriated for my own fell purpose.

In my ideal world,
I want a knight in shinning armour,
For me to be the modern princess,
With the glitz and the glamour.

I laugh at this thought,
When the moment is tranquill,
Wondering if you feel the same,
Or if you ever will.

I fear if I get close,
I will never be able to keep you,
You will hurt or leave me,
Just like they always do.

I won't say I love you,
For this will take time,
Time we may not have,
Until I can claim you mine.

I cannot be the one to predict,
How long we'll be together,
But I am fairly certain though Ant,
That I have fell forever.
