Fay Slimm

If.

 

 

If.

 

If lovers co-mingle who once Heaven breached,
if echoes of ardour pierce final silence,
when I wait in this void where stars collided
his kind voice I will hear.

 

If hearts now formless mold bodies from ether,
if in other worlds ghosts create substance,
when I kneel to plead for more solid assurance
his soft touch will I feel.

 

If spirits escape from restrictions of air,
if souls can revisit scenes of past bliss,
when I walk in dreams of remembered kisses
he will come to me there.

    totally a gorgeous poem, Fay. x

  • Louis Gibbs

    A beautiful poem without doubt, Fay, but it left me with a question: You shift from assertions in the last lines of the first and third stanzas, ('I will' and 'he will'), to a question in the second, ('will I'). Was this shift deliberate? Apologies if I've completely failed to comprehend your intent, my talented friend.

    • Fay Slimm

      Tis still a statement my dear Louis - - that "will I feel" is meant as no question if you read again the previous line. Hope this helps with the question you asked above. You are so kindly interested in my ongoing work and I thank you wholeheartedly for your support and interest.

      • Louis Gibbs

        Thank you for the clarification, Fay. I'm always interested in your work and look forward to it.

        Very beautifully written Fay of love lost. And how could your love resist coming to you after you writing so adoringly a write for him?

        Oh, My Dear Poetess Fay...
        As I’m reading your write of a jewel, a love song by Michael McDonald came over the radio waves! Do I call this a coincidence?

        Regardless, your exquisite poem doesn’t need background music! It beautifully stands all on its own ! Enjoyed it thoroughly! Very relatable to me of a lost love of long ago! I could never express the feeling as well as you do! You are a master of the craft! In your debt My Dear Poetess!
        ~Laura~
