Fay Slimm.





I remain here perusing a stranger 

in this most really unsuitable space

and whisper what seems inescapable,


converging on"maybes" but changing 

to thought that is stripping me naked

and yearning yet still ought to hesitate,


when as "yes" rears itself into view may

the loom of long-woven compliance fray

while a new "you and me" I contemplate.

    May that compliance with life always be with you Fay.


    • Fay Slimm.

      You are so kind and thank you Andy.

    • Neville

      Only you could craft such an exquisite way of describing what we all know happens in those delicious moments of uncertainty or hesitation ...


      • Fay Slimm.

        I think you voice a fear within the longing. So much easier to turn away from the thought than contemplate its complexity and danger. Yet the goal .... oh the goal.... need i say more?

        • Fay Slimm.

          You hit the nail on its head D.A. - and as for the goal no need to say more - --
          thank you for your thoughtful input to Unmissable
