Naturalistic Observation © Emma Young 2014

The happiness you know with her
Is different to that which you knew with me,
I almost pity her naivety -
Which presently has kept her shielded .
She thinks your love immortal
She believes you infallible
But I am waiting for the fall.

She does not know me,
Would not, could not
Notice
Or have faith in any words
I should convey to her
So I anticipate the inevitable…

I watch the predator approach
Awaiting that gruesome fall
Of the fragile female
Knowing the beast will relish
Every bite, every drop,
Every ruptured vessel
While I, photographer,
In the backdrop of the reeds
Just accept –
Do not interfere
And offer her no comfort
