A Marriage (2) - Poem by Gillian Thurlby

Love took no notice of the outward form
The aging body and the wrinkled skin
It was the words from which a spark was born
Ideas exchanged with an indiscipline

Uncalled for, unexpected, then denied
Titania’s potion never was this strong
As each day tenderness intensified
A craving to let go and fall headlong

Into a life of closeness, holding hands
Kisses the currency of every day
Like changing from a diet somewhat bland
To hot and spicy korma or satai

I don’t deserve a miracle like this
But hope to wallow in a state of bliss
