Unquenched Thirst. - Poem by Fay Slimm

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.

    This is a most beautifully expressive and excellently written poem, Fay, a wonderful comment on the desire generated by deep love. As always, you excell in writing of love and romance and it was a pleasure to read this lovely poem. Carl. (Report) Reply
