Fay Slimm.




Sent by guidance from divine sources
to over ripe hearts
sweet love-drops ooze vapour to sate
wishing-dry daydreams.
Yearning skin's heated craving for him
makes inner core start
wanting more taste of illusion's relief
thru' miraged feelings.

Breath heaving in ghostly waves below
night's gauzy-clad gown
unveils desire to reveal potent image
of clandestine-reality.
Primed silken sheets of sigh-scented
waiting become wound
in untasted delight as passion burns
out on dark's lonely pyre.

Can a mouth stay sequestered forever
in need's heady mist
of seasoned, ready-lipped eagerness  
yet never been kissed ?

    Good write Fay.
    I don't like some surveys. They may give a choice 'Never married'. That makes us sound like fogey bachelors or spinsters - both hideous words!

    • Fay Slimm.

      Thanks for your visit and comment dear Orchi.

    • Dove

      Nicely written, and though I may like putting my head in a cloud, at least I can say I've been kissed, ...

      • Fay Slimm.

        Ha - am delighted you have not missed out on the kissing dear Dove - so glad you enjoyed the read.

      • MendedFences27

        Wow! I felt the pent-up desire in this. A life of loneliness wanting to be set free. Seems as though your theme is a most difficult one to write and yet you've have done it with great style and some wonderful phrases: "over-ripe hearts," "wishing-dry daydreams," "wound in untasted delight," "Can a heart stay submerged forever?" Just loved it. - Phil A.

        • Fay Slimm.

          You are so kind in this telling comment Phil and am so glad you enjoyed some of the phrasing.

        • Goldfinch60

          Emotive words Fay but I am sure that you have been kissed.


          • Fay Slimm.

            Ha - you could well be right there re the kissing dear Andy - - - finding love with its cuddles is the best of all gifts.
