Fay Slimm.






Unsettled my sleep,
yet were I with thee
each night would be
bedded in sated need.


Uneasy my soul,
yet were I to hold
thee as mine alone
would feelings unfold.


Unrested my mind,
yet were I now thine
on fire would be night
while we Paradise find.

      the Guinea pig is write my lady ... so perfectly placed and superbly crafted .. these words might easily be a single stand alone love poem of immense tenderness and longing ... Or indeed three shorter but no less emotionally charged little cameos .....


      • Fay Slimm.

        My sincere appreciation for this thoughtful comment on Feelings dear Nev..... on looking at your observation I can now see how the poem could be read in two ways - -- glad you enjoyed the read my friend and thanking you ever so kindly for your visit my friend....................x.

        Deep felt longing pours from your words. Sleepless nights of unfulfilled desire.

        Written in a classical style and is perfection of purpose.

        To fine a piece to be overlooked, into my fav's.

        • Fay Slimm.

          Delighted you liked the depth I tried to capture in Feelings D.A. and double thanks too for adding the piece to your list of faves.

        • ANGELA & BRIAN

          ANGELA HERE ~Good Evening FAY = Thanks for caring & sharing. Brian & I (& Smokey) are very contented @ the end of the DAY - Together ! So we can relate - in the present tense - AMEN

          V 1. I slept alone for 32 Years - But now I know what I was missin* !
