Appeal To Love. - Poem by Fay Slimm

My dear love
When we part, and this heart of mine aches,
What does it take to make you believe
I can't live a day without being with you?
In a way we seem joined with a bond
So strong it makes everything wrong
When we are at war.
Life was worth living before, but now
I can't seem to think in an orderly way.

Oh my love
Something is missing, it is closeness to you
And this plane where my spirit
Is floating is lonely, as yours must be too.
We have acted like fools yet again.
Like children at school we broke a rule
When we parted in anger.
I know you'll agree because
You and me, we only feel whole
When we're one in the soul.
We are soul-mates my love, that's our role.

Dearest love
Let's meet and make up.
I've had enough of this silly child's game.
Life's not the same without
Hearing you whisper my name
The sound of your heart next to mine
Is all I will want to the end of time.
Let us promise we'll quarrel no more.
We both said strong words.
So hard they gave pain.
But I've had enough of wanting to win.

Love of my life
Let's make a new start.
I give in to my heart, oh my love
I am sorry for my part in this fight.
So let's make things right
And let's start - - tonight!

    alas reapproachment is difficult and you wisely suggest that you will be first,
    clusters of emotions of warm tenderness, how could the counter point refuse

    Hi Fay, very touching and intensely personal. I dare anyone to write with such honesty and sincerity: it is there in the expression, the tone and the evident longing and belonging. Whose song was it: 'Never let the sun go down, the two of us still fighting'? Never a truer phrase... The 'I've had enough of the wanting to win' line is so poignant. RW Emerson said, that for a friend one would need 1000 years to enjoy each other: how much more for a lover and a soulmate. Is eternity going to be long enough, I wonder. Whatever you believe about 'life, the universe and everything' as Douglas Adams put it, may you be graced by all the time you need together: especially if you can write some more like this one! Thanks, Tony (Report)Reply

    Love makes us act in foolish ways, but whats Important is never part angry, kiss and make up at the end of the day, you love each other anyway... Andrew 10 (Report)Reply
