Fay Slimm






Once caught Love dispenses
its potions,
becoming victorious
by invasively pouring itself
into emotions,
objections de-throned
it speaks between heartbeats
and overthrows fear.


Once within Love impregnates
by raiding
all moody defences,
negates objections, alleviates
anxiety's stress
and by repainting memories
past failures defeats.


Once struck Love decapitates
mind's doubting reasons
by frustrating unhappiness,
permeates stored
frustration and resurrects
hidden needs.
Love invigorates weariness
to reveal lost libido.


Once begun Love invalidates 
coined vicissitudes,
ravages sadness, purloins
cursed prisoners
as it rouses vivaciousness
and exudes bliss
into thirsty pores because
Love always wins.

        That's love alright!

        I wonder what one would make of your fine piece today if one was looking through the eyes of a person who had never been smitten?
        I can't imagine. There's no going back!

        • Fay Slimm

          Yes you make a good point re. the person whose heart love has never yet fired - - but there is always still time my friend eh ? So pleased you enjoyed the read.

              THANKS FAY : For a wonderful ODE to LOVE ! It really covers all the Phases Brian & I have been through to get where we are TODAY ! 11 thousand miles apart : and yet two separated HEARTS still beating as ONE : AMEN.
              LOVE Dispenses
              LOVE Impregnates
              LOVE Decapitates
              LOVE Invalidates
              All NEGATIVES are eliminated and All that is POSITIVE accentuated.

                Thanks so much for the lovely comment dear Angela - - I thought you would see the depth I tried to express in the piece and how priceless is love for its force to change negative into a Yes. Keep taking care of each other and time will be kind and will surely pass sooner - hugs to you both . x
