Well, this poem is short and… kind of sweet. It’s about dating. You’re probably aware that I am an EXPERT on the subject.


However, this poem is about a first date, if you like.

On a side note, you may have noticed that Ash Watson Poetry has ha a bit of a make-over. I’m thinking it looks a lot better than the old layout, but I always want to know what you guys think – the same goes for tonight’s poem. Let me know what you think of it in the comments section below. And as always, thanks for reading.

The Interview

So you’re dating.
Tasting wine in foreign restaurants,
linking hands beside candles’ burn,
talking about…

And it’s like some kind of interview.

You’re smiling to ease the fake formality,
laughing at their jokes,
easing into a goodnight kiss to say,


You’ve fallen in love.

You can read more of my work by looking at previous blogs or navigating the site. Alternatively, you can order your very own copy of my debut poetry collection Wallflower from Amazon.
Wallflower is a journey through self-discovery to the realisation of the world around you. It is a greeting to those with a fear of belonging, an invitation to outsiders looking in, warm hugs to anyone who has ever loved and lost. A collection of twenty-one poems, brought to you by a fistful of passion from a chaotic mind.
