This instinct

14 Apr


I cannot explain it.

This instinct.

It triggers itself on the flimsiest of evidence.

A handshake. Eyes meeting, Movements observed. The timbre of a voice. A fragment of conversation. The way she wears her clothes.

And sometimes on even thinner, more distant grounds.

A name. A photograph.  A word on a blog. A comment. Something made favourite.

I can be certain based seemingly on nothing.

I cannot explain it.

This instinct.

I simply know.

I sense a submissive soul.

Sometimes even before she is aware of it herself.

    Lovely. A Dominant can, instinctively. Just as the submissive knows Him as well.

    Your very observant aren’t you. Maybe you have found your future submissive. Good luck to you.

    I think that instinct you have described in this life-style is such an asset, not only in the yearning desire, but also in the realized eroticism and life-styled eloquence that can be experienced… An experienced Dominant or submissive that has this knows for a fact that it is not just Basic instinct… ★

    In the right ear, the simplest of breaths can hold the most complex of symphonies

    Such an intimate moment yet as you say it can come in the from something not pertaining to physicality. Submission exudes from within our deepest souls. Those with attuned tender eyes and senses can see it burning beneath the skin.
