Exactly one year ago today. We all make mistakes. Sometimes the same one.
Over and over.

A Faded Romantic's Notebook


At what point does he realise?

Is it when he wakes to find she has left no word?  No gentle mailed reminder of her gorgeous presence.

Is it when he points the car towards the office and the first song on the radio has an image of her in every line?

Is it when he finds himself comparing every woman he sees with the absolute glory of her face and form and finding others utterly wanting?

Is it when the second glass of wine dulls his defences and he can’t stop her from climbing into his thoughts and curling up in his heart?

Is it when he goes to sleep and she is the last thing he thinks of as he closes his tired eyes?

At what point does he realise

He has made such a stupid mistake?

    Maybe even the strongest Dominant longs for a submissive who will persist tirelessly in obtaining His favour despite apparent rebuffles? Would imagine the persisting bit is tricky to pitch correctly without becoming an annoyance! 🙂

      Laughing. This Dom always admires persistence. But only if harnessed with creativity.

    Thank you so much for replying, I appreciate it. I am so glad to have made you laugh, it is Easter Sunday after all – New Life, New Birth, New Joy!! And…as I’ve noticed from earlier posts, Mondays sometimes pose a melancholic risk for you, so…if we (those of us ladies here) can lift your spirits on a Sunday, then perhaps Monday will come in altogether more sprightly!? Oh, and by the way, meant to say Happy Easter before, to you Mr. RD and to all the lovely folks who frequent here, so Happy Easter! 🙂

      Thank you. It is a holiday in England tomorrow so there is nothing bleak about this Monday. Smiles.

    Haha, yes I know. I am writing from England. So sorry as I wanted to say hello on here earlier today, but I’ve had so much work to do that it is only now I am able to come. Hope you had a lovely day? 🙂
