Fay Slimm.





That late afternoon 

when the slope of well-muscled 

shoulders approached 

her slim frame and male breath

bent closer to trembling lips

refusal loomed large

for a guilt-ridden moment

then action exploded.


Chance of resistance can melt

as passion turns No into Yes. 


  • dusk arising

    Oh cor blimey Fay, a bit contravertial. Us blokes have been getting a lot of stick for not hearing the NOs and imagining they are not meant thereby ending up in court. Not that humble, innocent, romantic littuw me ever would do anything like that of course.

    On the other hand yes, I do see your lady melting here as the passion of her dreams approaches and..... well, as the saying goes, the rest is just toothpaste...

    Innit awful when legal matters interfere with the romantic instinct.

    • Fay Slimm.

      Ha ha - Great comment and thank you dear Dusk - - glad you likened that meeting by Chance to toothpaste cos it certainly does fizzle with peppermint heat -- hearings in court were never intended in this little scribble but must agree that the words yes and no must be loud and definitely understood.

      'Romantic notion'?
      Come on Fay, that woz lust, not very pure but certainly simple.

      On the basis of your evidence, they both enjoyed....'Nuff said...

      • Fay Slimm.

        Guzon wid ya Dave - - lust can be very romantic in my neck of the woods........... ha - grand to have had you stop by though for a read and review of Chance.

        • Doggerel Dave

          Seems like I missed out badly there, Fay. Should ha been in the wonderful West Country during my yoothful randy period rather than larking and lurking about London..,...

          I remember my first true emotional kiss,as "a dare" with a girl I fancied at school.Her name was (censored) and I always wonder what happened to her.And does she have a lovely life etc etc.I was so nervous I nearly missed.
          Oh the adventure of youth.
          Sorry Fay.Nearly forgot about your poem.What did you write again?
          Exits stage left after reading poetic words floating within my lips.

          • Fay Slimm.

          • Robert Haigh

            A steamy novel in the making, Fay? Either way, it is a scene from life and an episode from many a person's past! Me personally? I couldn't possibly say!
