Fay Slimm.




We pair of home-comers  

built from painful baggage a water-tight dream,

we painted an idyll of walled delight.

A bright corner where care could cover old scars.


Oh that happy hand-in-glove fit

of regenerative pleasure which we dared admit

into the picture of autumnal love.


Such easy laughter sparked need

to spend more new-found treasure in bounteous

tending our moments of bloom.

Fresh as youth the dreams we wove from aridity.


Your tenderness stoked heat

in forgotten feelings, blazed pathways to places

I had never been and seared 

heaven into my wasteland of solo existence.


So gentle our mounting to like

desire for unleashing freedom, exciting steps 

waited with chance to climb untasted sheer heights

where I thrived in sweet air of acceptability.


You re-sculpted sallow composure,

restructured palid future, accessed the girl inside

and unfastened this latched-up former 

dry conformist, your tactile spirit let loose 

love's abandon and I did not refuse.


Beautiful man your love smeared

warmth on every cold fold of denial's insistence,

toned any slack in compatible essence 

and de-misted my short-sighted myopic signals.


Oil of duo-romance honed compatibility,

our joinings were something greater than flesh,

yield reached unbelievable bliss.

and that better otherness I shall ever remember.


No ocean of parting can break deep devotion's 

integrity and I know for certain

our souls remain tied and we shall meet again.


Oh unforgettable man you stole

into destiny, led me to love, captured my soul,    

and now you hold it forever.
