Late Taste

Fay Slimm.


Late Taste.

Shall we pluck the one chance
to lay aside single
for waiting surrender in beds 
of coupled extravagance 
where completion sighs ready 
for clandestine bliss
which sates forbidden yield ?

Shall we take flight, you and I ?

Shall we attempt the euphoria
of untried dimensions 
and find pleasured elation in
late taste of rapture 
that captures true satisfaction ?

Shall we make haste you and I ?

            Love, like a fine wine, improves with age and the pleasure found there will surely linger long after. Make haste and enjoy for it will be all the sweeter. A beautiful write my dear friend, so touching and true.
