Fay Slimm.





We pair of home-comers  

built water-tight daring from lonely tears,

we painted an idyll of caught bubbles

in leaky trust where care would cover old fears.


Oh that happy hand-in-glove fit

that we dared admit as regenerative pleasure

when autumn relaxed to abnormal finish

while I untangled lost years of regret.


Such easy laughter sparked need

to spend newly-found treasure on richer 

moments of tending completeness

as youth-fresh growth we wove from aridity.


Your tenderness stoked heat

of forgotten furnace, blazed pathways to places

I never had been, lit fires that seared 

heaven into dreary existence without dire haste.


Such welcome release to taste desire,

freedom unleashed exciting steps 

as waiting the chance to climb ardour's height

I thrived in sweet air of acceptability.


You sculpted my pallid composure,

restructured a future, accessed the girl inside

and unfastened this latched-up conformer 

to match your own extra tactile 

spirit which let loose abandon I did not refuse.


Beautiful man your love smeared

warmth on every cold fold of denial's insistence,

toned any slack in compatible essence 

and de-misted my near-sighted myopic signals.


Oiled romance honed compatibility,

our duo-joining owned bonds more than flesh,

feelings reached otherness bliss

and coupled yield I shall ever remember.


No ocean of parting can break

hearts' devotion and I know for a certainty

our souls remain tied and we shall meet again.


Oh unforgettable man you stole

into destiny, led me to love, captured my soul,    

and now you hold it forever.

      I found this really really moving. You touch places where the concealed yearning in older singles cries out to be touched and sated.
      Life is wonderful, life is cruel, life is love.

      • Fay Slimm.

        Yes dear friend there is much loneliness in older ones and the poem touches on just one of the challenges of needy singles. Thanks so much for your visit and comment.
