Body won't let you

Body won't let you

by Elizabeth Challinor


I know the poem you want to write

But body won't let you

Not tonight



Give up the fight

Go with the inexplicable flow of emotions

Let body's fears and tears be

Enjoy those moments of irony

Savour the power of passion

The pleasure of flirting with fantasy

Stop giving directions

Can't you hear the clouds laughing

Since when did water trickle in a straight line?

Elizabeth Challinor
