Cardiff Skies. - Poem by Rachel Henley

This painful absence in my chest,
supported by the constant leaking,
Soon as I board up my hut,
the hurricane of you,
tears me down, time and time again.

I hope you find peace,
with the person you are with,
in the morning, day and night.
I hope you remember our love,
for I am with you,
in the morning, day and night.

I could not make you stay,
Oh take my bones, my fibres, my flesh.
I have not been the same without you,
My feelings have not changed, since you left.

But cobwebs grow in places forgotten
and an apple is still an apple,
even when it has rotten,
Love will always be love,
as the sun will always be the sun.

I shall greet you,
behind your closed eyes,
when the moon becomes apparant,
in those Cardiff skies.
