I will adore you

12 Apr



I will adore you.

I will admire you and respect you.

I will support you when the whole world is against you, or even just a small part of it. I will take your side irrespective of whose side you are on. I will comfort you when you are hurt, lift you when you are down, make your spirits soar when you least expect it.

I will instruct you, mentor you, guide you. I will, as far as in my power, keep you safe. I will encourage you, enthuse you, motivate you. I will paint your body with words in ways that make you glow. I will be proud of you. I will study every inch of you and pour my attention over you like honey.

I will thrill you, tease you, and arouse you. I will help you fulfill your wildest fantasies, your darkest desires, your deepest needs. I will touch you in ways beyond your imagination. I will take you to climaxes that leave you utterly sated and complete.

I will amplify your joy, soften your sorrow, fill your days with light, and touch your nights with romance.

I will make you laugh. I will kiss away your tears.

I will give you confidence, give you strength, give you self-belief. I will worship your beauty, your sensuality, your body. I will hymn your breasts, your buttocks your belly, your shoulders, your throat, your back, your thighs. I will make your body sing with pleasure and pain.

You will be my submissive, my lover, my muse, my friend. You will belong. I will make you feel valued, worthy, special, unique, perfect.

I will adore you.

But I will not love you.

Regardless of how close, how entwined, how enraptured we become.

For I love another. I have loved her forever.

I will always love her.

She is the love of my life.

    I admire and respect your honesty about not being able to ever love your submissive or a submissive. I admire and respect your love for the other. It must be hard sometimes to fight your feelings towards another. Your wife, also known as your best friend, is a very lucky woman.

    This was nice to read again and especially to hear. Smiles

    Perhaps this is how it should be, or at least how it IS. And that is the most any of us can hope for. We should all be brave enough to write our own rules, for marriage, for relationships, for life. Fuck what we are supposed to be, to do…let’s all just do what we do…”rules” be damned. Kudos to you for finding your own way to spite society’s rules.

      What I do is wrong. Wrong in my eyes anyway – I have no regard for the rules of others – particularly religion. I am not a good man. I have made the best I can out of things. And I try to give the best of myself when I can.
      Thank you. And yes. It is our lives. We must make our own rules. And try not to hurt others – although sometimes it is impossible not to.

        Very few of us are “good,” we are human. That must be enough, and I think most of the time it is. I try to strive for “good enough” in most things…perhaps that will suffice. I hope so, for all of us. May your Sunday bring some respite before the dreaded Monday morning routine.

        Thank you for this comment. It is very relevant for me today, at this very moment. I needed to hear it from someone.

    Phew, the audio is powerful… and interesting too as I have been reflecting for weeks about posting a reading of my poems along with the words (on my other blog). I just hadn’t yet worked out the technology!

    You have always confused me with the contradictory thoughts and emotions you evoke… but I love your way with words, and share your love for Vettriano (though, as a once-upon-a-time ballroom and latin dancer, it’s his dancing painting that initially drew me in).

    It’s good to be back on this old, neglected blog-universe (which I needed a break from, and am ready to return to) – and you welcomed me back with a like! Thank you 🙂 It felt like being welcomed back by an old friend, somehow, despite my journey turning now far from submission to a new perspective on self-empowerment. That meant a lot.

      Smiles. I am glad you enjoyed
      Submission should be about self empowerment. I know that sounds counter intuitive to many.
      But regardless of one’s path, believing in oneself is everything. I wish you luck on your journey.

        That makes some sort of intuitive sense, yet has not always been my lived experience – but there is much still to explore and learn, and the journey never ceases to fascinate me. I suppose it is true to say that both submission and empowerment are experiences I have never yet felt fully immersed in… and yes, perhaps they can go hand-in-hand. I always acknowledge that my – each of our – understanding is limited by our experiences.

    are you blaming her for your feelings?

      Absolutely not. Too many people blame others for everything. I am responsible for me and my feelings. For the good things I do and the bad things.

    It is possible to have more than one love simultaneously, eventually a desire to be the only love is most inconvenient. Adore this beautifully expressed poetry.

    Raw honesty. An art lost by most. The audio certainly commands attention.

    Sorry but i found this poem really pathetic
    If you love your wife sincerely
    You Would not look at another woman and say i adore you &do all these things which you described but not love you … you run behind all the women when they pay attention you step bac, more like cowards! !
    Sorry my intention is not to hurt you but to show u the mirror Mr RD ….

      Everyone has a view. But equally, human relationships are complex. None of us can truly understand the effect of those on how others conduct their lives and why.

    a lover is a thing one’s the passion is over she’s reduced to a rug dirty and trodden on the ground……unworthy of your love …a wife always have a special place in a husband’s life. good write. Your lover must think, otherwise, but sigh* love is powerful sometimes hard to control. If you love her as much you must let her go not use her sorry bout that sometimes I’m too blunt.

    Adoration is its own form of caring; an emotion pure, and unbridled. It means so much to be adored, so much that must be felt, because it often cannot be explained.

    Your courage inspires me, but then I understand.

    This is sort of story of my life… or kind of.
    I’m amazed how you can pull off the true feelings about an expectative from her and (at the same time) kill her with the ‘but’… just a f*cking prerrogative not considered, though.
    As I was reading I felt like everything a woman wants, you deliver… and not quite.
    Every inch of my skin felt it… and it was so real…

    Been in love as mistress is particularly painful because of it.
    Yet, I love him… and it kills me.
