English Rose

09 Jul

Her blue/grey eyes know him.

Better than anyone.

It is early evening on a Friday.  He has driven for four hours and he is finally home.  Rain is dripping solemnly from the trees.  The garden is lush with green leaves, and is beautiful with the forest of plants she has nurtured with an easy hand.

The house is chaotic with change and newly-returned, still newly-adult, children.

She smiles at his noisy entrance and sympathises with his journey.

She touches his face and makes him tea.

This song is for her.


English Rose by Paul Weller

No matter where I roam
I will return to my English rose
For no bonds can ever tempt me from she
I’ve sailed the seven seas,
Flown the whole blue sky.
But I’ve returned with haste to where my
Love does lie.
No matter where I go I will return to my English Rose
For nothing can ever tempt me from she.
I’ve searched the secret mists
I’ve climbed the highest peaks
Caught the wild wind home
To hear her soft voice speak
No matter where I roam
I will return to my English Rose
For no bonds can ever keep me from she.

I’ve been to ancient worlds
I’ve scoured the whole universe
And caught the first train home
To be at her side.
No matter where I roam
I will return to my English Rose
For no bonds, nothing and no-one can ever keep me from she

    Please, I hope you don’t mind me asking this question on here but I do not have a romantic account on Twitter to be able to reply there. You say that “She is learning how to fly with a broken wing” , please has the Dom broken her wing as in a doctor/vet will break a bone in order to reset it correctly for better flight /use? Or does the Dom take her already broken to heal her? 🙂

      You must not read too much into my tweets. They are often random thoughts and ideas that have no direct connection with reality.

    Alright, I will try to do that. Thank you, I appreciate it. 🙂

    Although and I say this with a smiley face, one of the reasons that your twitter account is so addictive, is because the way you write, romantically draws women in and naturally, being women and sensitive at that, will want to imagine themselves in whichever particular situation! 🙂 🙂 I promise this isn’t a moan. 🙂

      Smiles. I’ll take it as a compliment then. Some imagine, perhaps, but few would wish for more.

    I respectfully beg to differ. 🙂 From what I can see, were you to materialise here now along with all those who visit your blog, I am quite sure there would be an enormous cat fight take place, all vying for your attention! 🙂

    I know in my case that to imagine is an exceedingly dangerous thing and I can only afford to imagine those things which are within my realm to have /experience. To imagine that which can not be had is to cultivate an ache and a yearning that one has no realistic hope of having fulfilled. 🙂 Sorry these are always so long!

    If someone found themselves in the position of wanting more in terms of a D/s relationship, is there a book they could read?

      If I had a pound for every time I am asked that I would be wealthy indeed. D/s is a relationship. It is when two people with symbiotic needs come together. Of course there are those (always men – just like religion – who would like to impose a set of misogynist rules and give it structure. But that is all bollocks). Would you look for a book on love? Or friendship. There are thousands, and none is right or correct. D/s is about two people determining a framework and building a relationship which will complete them. (And those who use 50 Shades as their bible do not have a clue). That hasn’t helped I know – so read as many viewpoints of D/s on the internet as you can, try to work out what you need – assuming you have s submissive need, and then seek someone in the same way as you would seek anyone, using what you have learned. No one has an answer or a perfect guide – and do not believe them if they say they have.
