Fay Slimm






Never will sighs go so deeply again.

Go tell the sea that he,
who was the flame of my life, brave
knight who took me inside
his heartfelt inferno of kindness, who
tenderly taught me desire
can no longer move distance to prove
love's tides can ride me
to shore for he sank in the fatal flood
where void and troubleless
he lies but my lament on losing such
lover will never be ending
for nothing can ease my heart's pain
which continues so raw.

Never will time have meaning again.
