For my inconstant reader

All those nights of wine and stars

And days of very, very different lives

End here, in this silly room

Both of us needing something

From each other, finally

Not able to put this aside now.

All those years past speed by

And all those years since

We acknowledge with a nod

To time and the jaggedly interwoven

Thread of both of our lives

Both of us older now,

A little unsure how to start

(it’s been a long time)

We sure knew how to finish

Lacking nothing in satisfaction

Maybe a little in heart

But that was never in the deal

For either of us.

We part, sweat-drenched and sated

Look at each other with

Fondness and friendship

Before catching up

On old times, old acquaintances

Those threads which link us

And who never will know

Or understand that what we just did

Was selfish and naughty

And just what was needed

To go and face the world again.

Just like the first time.

Thank you.

About titflasher

Writer, blogger, animal activist, people activist, dream-catcher maker, mommy to 9 cats and a roving band of foxes ... Blog name comes from my father's suggestion for the title of my autobiography ... after my mother's and my awful habit of flashing whenever the security police took our photo in the dark old days of apartheid South Africa. I love nature, including creepy crawlies and people, find life fascinating and frustrating and have two terrible weaknesses - nictotine and animals in distress ... can't abide the latter situation and can't give up the former. I'm Pagan but not anti-Christian, funny but quite serious, light-hearted but can be annoying. I am warm-hearted until someone p*sses on me too much, then I get soggy and even. Feel free to link me but all the words on these pages is copyrighted, so copy it and take the credit and I will find you and slap you upside the head, hard. The blog is probably best read via category as there is loads on here already, and I just got started :-)
