Something Greater.

Something Greater.

A Poem by Fay Slimm

Something Greater.

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 what happy hand-in-glove fit of regenerative
pleasure which we dared to admit

into the picture of autumnal love.

Such easy laughter sparked need to spend more
new-found treasure in glad togetherness.

Fresh as youth the stream we dug from aridity.

Your tenderness stoked heat
in forgotten feelings, blazed pathways to places
I had never been

and seared heaven into every greeting.

So gentle our mountain
of unleashed freedom that time gave us

chances to climb to new heights.

I thrived in sweet air of acceptability.

You re-sculpted sallow existence, blushed my
pallid future, accessed the girl inside
and unfastened this

latched-up former conformist.

You let loose love's abandon and I did not refuse.

Beautiful man your breath
warmed every fold of compatible essence, toned
any slack in my short-sighted outlook
and de-misted

smeared myopic signals.

Duo-passion soon oiled and honed rarely used
adaptability so we could reach bliss.

Our joinings were something greater than flesh
and that better otherness I shall

always remember.

No ocean of parting can break devotion's deep
integrity and I know for certain

we shall meet again.

Oh unforgettable man
you stole into destiny, captured my soul

and now you hold it forever.

Beautifully connecting to the the inspiration of the muse, to connect to your audience, the inspiration of your words and images, that all somehow manage to connect together, without wires. It kind of melts my head to think of all those connections now in place, thanks to your original connection with someone. It leaves me with the thought of a voice over from an old TV show... There are 5 million stories in the naked city, this was just one of them. I'm looking forward to the next instalment of your show... I mean writing, Fay. 😀
