Meeting for a late night meal
Not quite strangers, Not quite friends
But something else unborn and unspoken
A forward movement,
A relevant transition,
A certain shift
resonating between and within us
The repast remained barely consumed
Our hearts full of anticipation instead
The ease at which we came to be joined
An affirmation that it was meant to be
The darkness deepened outside
The air breathing its long December chill
But here in this space lay newborn warmth
Eyes wide open
Souls ready to receive
Two lovers sealing their covenant
A confident expectation
A credulous commitment
Thus, on this night,
in this blood-thin blackness
this achy, gasping vortex of interminable frost
A recollection of our whispered pact
soothes me in a blanket of torrid heat
#FWF Free Write Friday: Trust
Just one word this week. It can mean many things can’t it? I am grateful to have it back in my life. I took a trip down memory lane for this one. And I am glad that I still am making more with my beloved! Perfect way to end the week.

Absolutely lovely – touching and breathtaking. I’m working on a story idea where two people come together in almost exactly this way. This poem just completely resonated with me.
Oh wow! The poem is the seedling of my own relationship with my now fiance’!
I hope my piece will allow your idea to grow and blossom!
Beautiful — thanks for sharing such a special moment.
My hope is that I captured well enough in order to convey the message that it was the beginnings of a trusting relationship.

What a wonderful moment.. the moment when you know… the moment when you trust!
I remember trust as being the initial and overpowering instinct at the time.. 🙂
It is beautiful to read such a genuine leap of trust. Blessings, Oliana
Thank you! I hoped to capture the feeling of it. 🙂
Beautifully expressed. Trust is a diamond with many facets. In the end it is the integrity of it that counts. Your impassioned poem speaks to me of trust in love. How fortunate we are when we a love we can trust. … Well done. 🙂
Thank you so much! I love your definition of trust. Integrity is the foundation; without it, love is doomed.
This was so wonderfully written…your message of love is always rich and flowing…warms my heart every time – nice work Kim!
Thank you Charlene! I wanted the words to ring true and get at the heart (so to speak) of the relationship. I am always so happy to hear from you! : ) 🙂
Beautifully written. You have captured the essence of that new love between two people – the moments when trust is building and love is starting to blossom.
Thank you Colline. First time I have been able to put into words the feelings of that time.
