No longer young

I am no longer young.

I have lost the immortality of youth. The absolute belief that only the young can possess – the certainty I will live forever. That age cannot mark me. That accident cannot maim me. That disease cannot weaken me. That a dissolute and hedonistic lifestyle cannot ruin me. 

I know now that I can be hostage to all these things.

I am no longer young.

My hair is silver. It has been since my thirties. I could once blame my mother’s genes but now the passing years are undeniably the cause. My face is lined and weathered. A testament to brave, foolish, glorious years spent in hot sun, or roughened by winter weather on high mountain slopes, or by salty winds on rough-hewn cliffs. 

But also by too much business. Too many decisions. Too many late nights, doing deals.

I am no longer young. 

I am not a stallion, claiming to perform like a beast. I am not rippling with muscle, bristling with masculinity, rampant with testosterone, raging with impatience, resplendent with body art, thrusting like an animal, pacing like a tiger.

I am no longer young.

My desires are darker, more cerebral, more intellectual, more driven by beauty, by control, by patience, by discipline, by a deep knowledge of your desires that you can barely guess at.

I am no longer young.

But I promise you this.

No one can make you sigh, make you dance, make you ache, make you writhe, make you sing,

Like I can.

    Yet you make it sound glorious, so much so that whoever reads it would want to age like you do!

    Given an uninhibited choice, I would choose the talents you offer over an unbroken colt every time Sir, without question or reservation. 😌

    Define young?? lol. I loved this piece. Very though provoking. None of us remain young forever…except in our hearts and in our desires. With age….comes wisdom. Thank you for sharing. 🙂

    With age you grow more elegant and desirable, like a very fine wine.
