Fay Slimm.

Time Versus Love


Time Versus Love.


Time the rabid old monster

wants no permission

to gobble up passion,

knocks back agile wanting

and swallows up bliss

with indifferent non-action.


 - - - - - - YET - - - - - -


Love the ageless young mistress

smiles at rushed hunger,        

comforts each searcher

who needs some assistance  

to find ease in another     

with frequent undisguised thirst. 


  • dusk arising

    Frequent undisguised thirst eh?? I'll have a pint of that please.

    Time has certainly had a gobble at my passion.... i better find me that ageless young mistress you describe.

    • Fay Slimm.

          Many a man has quenched their thirst with an ageless young mistress, They are usually old, rich and with a poor wife kicked into touch after she has provided the obligatory children, or maybe I'me just jealous, lol.
          Nice one Fay.

              • Doggerel Dave

                Sorry Fay, but love (if indeed that's what we are talking about) old and comfortable is better.
                Love-erly write, though.

                Love is either a desert or a garden, never anything in between. The "ageless young mistress" of which you speak is imaginary, a dream in the mind of a lover, but the "frequent undisguised thirst" surely exists in reality. Love can be eternal if two hearts are in sync. What a beautiful poem for my Sunday respite. Loved it.- Phil A

                Such true words Fay, love can overcome all.

                I liked your poem. most loved lines
                Love the ageless young mistress

                smiles at rushed hunger,

                comforts each searcher

                who needs some assistance

                to find ease in another

                with frequent undisguised thirst.
