A piece of poetry written for the Forward Poetry Anthology Poetry Obsessions,
I’ll write you a million poems,
I’ll right you a million wrongs
I’ll send you a million love letters
I’ll sing you a million songs.
In that moment, we’d met in that twilight room
You lifted my spirits in the gloom.
You looked at me different – than the other girls did
and were a really good date for a couple o’ quid
I’d been sat in that hall, listening to the groove –
when up you stood, and made your first move
and as you moved those beautiful eyes
you took me quite by surprise
We grasped the nettle – Our gazes Fixed
And with arms around each other we mixed
Holding each other, with a loving glance
Moving to the centre, as they all watched us dance
But now that dates over – was it all a dream
It seems that really you weren’t all that keen
but your words of love hit me – and you’re inside my head
and I hear every word – and footstep you tread.
