The Colour of Ardour

Either way – she does have perfect timing…

Called to let me know she was coming over
Hadn’t seen her for some eight seasons since…

Conversations picked up right where we left off
Enjoying each other in every possible way just as before…

Said she always returns to me when she needs to find perspective
And rediscover the self she’s most comfortable being
Which only surfaces when she’s around me…

Was pleased to know she’d finally completed law school
And taken a trip to the Middle East like she always wanted…

All this over some kiwi and sweet granadilla
Another fruity experience just like every time we get together…

Shared more of her dreams with me
And said she appreciated how I’ve always listened and encouraged…

Conversation then turned to reminiscences
Our adventures up Constantia Nek
Getting lost in Kirstenbosch botanical garden
Kalk Bay getaways and a dozen other crazy dalliances…

Open discussions and intimate secrets exchanged without reluctance
A trust only possible when there’s no burden of attachment

    Totally agree, that’s definitely one way to put it 🙂
