A Poem by Fay Slimm

 

 

Compatible.

 

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 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 chance

to climb 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 oiled and honed rarely used action
so we could reach bliss.

Our union was something greater than physical
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, enraptured my soul and

now you hold it forever.

One reason I don't write romantic or love stuff is becuz I could never pull it off even a fraction as authentic as this. This was written by someone who's been immersed in it. This is what we all dream of, a safe place where there's no critical harping. Lots of couples have an "us-against-the-world" stance which reminds me of some parts of your poem. You really take the reader down into the depths of how it feels to feel this comfortable with someone! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

This is a beautiful sad eulogy for someone discovered in later years who unlocked the real yearnings and possibilities and it is beautifully described in sensitive and clear poetic script.
