Fay Slimm.

Compatible.

 

 

Compatible.

 

We pair of home-comers
built from painful baggage a water-tight dream,

we painted an idyll of walled delight.

A bright corner where care could cover old scars.

Oh that happy hand-in-glove fit of regenerative
pleasure which we dared to admit

into the picture of autumnal love.

Such easy laughter sparked need to spend more
new-found treasure in glad togetherness.

Fresh as youth the stream we dug from aridity.

Your tenderness stoked heat
in forgotten feelings, blazed pathways to places
I had never been

and seared heaven into every greeting.

So gentle our mountain
of unleashed freedom that time gave us chance

to climb new heights.

I thrived in sweet air of acceptability.

You re-sculpted sallow existence, blushed my
pallid future, accessed the girl inside
and unfastened this

latched-up former conformist.

You let loose love's abandon and I did not refuse.

Beautiful man your breath
warmed every fold of compatible essence, toned
any slack in my short-sighted outlook
and de-misted

smeared myopic signals.

Duo-passion oiled and honed rarely used action
so we could reach bliss.

Our union was something greater than physical
and that better otherness I shall

always remember.

No ocean of parting can break devotion's deep
integrity and I know for certain

we shall meet again.

Oh unforgettable man 
you stole into destiny, enraptured my soul and

now you hold it forever.

    'Oh that happy hand-in-glove fit
    of regenerative pleasure
    which we dared to admit'

    'Our union was something
    greater than physical
    and that better otherness
    I shall always remember.'

    someday, I hope to greet poetry with words and rhyme schemes and depth, half - as delectable as your wonderous writes,
    undeniably beautiful!

    WOW !!! just flippin wow!!!

    That feels really written from the heart and is so full of joyous contentment. Life's long journey traveled and along comes Mr Soulmate.
    Along with this you've gained the certain knowledge that there will be another togetherness.

    The whole reads like a wonderful story and has impressed me very much. I'm really envious.

    Swoon.

    Into my fav's.
