Machynlleth

This poem is about the murder of April Jones from her little Welsh town of Machynlleth. I wrote this after visiting there and seeing all of the pink ribbons in the town in rememberance for her, the atmosphere was very distressing.

Machynlleth

 

Anonymous and covered,

Body never recovered.

 

A million eyes on your back,

Watch from a distant.

Behind walls,

From windows,

In hidden places.

The gaze of solitude,

The guilt of the town.

The remorse for the girl who wandered aground.

 

Anonymous and covered,

Body never recovered.

 

 

Silence is deafening,

Whispers stain the slate air.

Every breath does mock,

Every step bruises,

Each word is a defence.

A crime is committed,

If you don’t pay respect.

In Machynlleth everyone is a suspect.

 

Anonymous and covered,

Body never recovered.

 

10 Years from now,

I’m sure we’ll visit,

The ghost of the corpse,

Hand in hand,

 Our delicate flower.

We’ll water the roots,

 dry and withered.

 

Anonymous and covered,

Body never recovered.

 

So will you join me on that exhausted mourning?

If it makes you feel any better,

we can analyse the embossed words.

And maybe that will be the day,

Where it will just come to us-

What happened to April, in Machynlleth.
