Poem A Week #11: Those Three Words

This is a poem about telling someone you love them for the first time. Or, rather, about the build up to telling someone you love them for the first time.

Poem A Week #9: Barafundle Bundle

This one’s about memory, particularly those early childhood “memories” that are actually just stories you’ve been told over and over, until they solidify into memory. It’s about a really specific bit of Pembrokeshire, and it goes some way to explain why I’m such a touchy-feely weirdo. Lovely jubbly.
