Choice by Angela Morgan

Choice by Angela Morgan (1875-1957)

I’d rather have the thought of you
To hold against my heart,
My spirit to be taught of you
With west winds blowing,
Than all the warm caresses
Of another love’s bestowing,
Or all the glories of the world
In which you had no part.

I’d rather have the theme of you
To thread my nights and days,
I’d rather have the dream of you
With faint stars glowing,
I’d rather have the want of you,
The rich, elusive taunt of you
Forever and forever and forever unconfessed
Than claim the alien comfort
Of any other’s breast.

O lover! O my lover,
That this should come to me!
I’d rather have the hope of you,
Ah, Love, I’d rather grope for you
Within the great abyss
Than claim another’s kiss-
Alone I’d rather go my way
Throughout eternity.

This poem has inspired me in my writing recently. Book two in the EVO Nation Series has its fair share of loss and pain, but ultimately this all stems from love; the strongest force in the universe. Love carries on through time, through death, through absence, and can hurt like hell, but in the words of Adam Lovick from EVO Nation (book one) ~ ‘Why do you think we feel pain? It’s so we appreciate what amazing feels like.’
