Fay Slimm

Rookie - 12 Points (Ageless. / in Cornwall U.K.)

Unquenched Thirst.


Ever imprinted with yearning,
.......................................... heart-beats
Hang heavy,
................. atrophied air needs desire.
Tomorrow will bring
..................................... untreated relief.
The same pain comes nightly
.......................................to set us afire.

Because of such want,
............ much thirst stays unquenched.
Imprinted, my friend,
................................... are you upon me.
I write you in verse
......................................as recompense.
Send word back to me,
.............................. then I am appeased.
