About Romantic Dominant

A faded romantic Dominant with a love of all things beautiful and a taste for the darkly sensual and decadent. A lover of music, food and wine, literature, theatre, film and art. A writer. Though not a good one. Of novels, shorts stories, songs and poetry. The written word is my joy and my curse. I am tall, silver haired, slender with piercing hazel/blue eyes and long, sensitive hands. I am neither handsome nor unattractive. I am a realistic dreamer, an idealistic pragmatist. I am a sexually dominant but patient and sensual lover. I adore intelligent, elegant, independent, beautiful women . I am not young. I am faded and fading. But if the music is playing, and the wine is good, and the stars are shining bright in a soft velvet night sky, and the light falls on me just right, then you might see the man who could break hearts. Well, if you have a very good imagination anyway ...

Curious

The more

she knows

about him

the more

she reads

about him

the more

she learns

about him

the more

curious

she becomes.

Naked Women

Art by J Dunster

Naked women

are ubiquitous on the web.

Complete strangers,

they never raise

my pulse

or catch my eye

or inspire me

or attract me

or seduce me

or excite me

or cause me to follow

or like

or connect.

.

Naked women

are ubiquitous on the web

They do nothing for me.

But the mere thought

of you

undressed

does everything,

.

Nature or Nurture?

She asks herself the question over and over again.

How could he tell from a photograph, a handful of posts, a dozen seemingly innocuous online messages?

What was it about her that had made him so certain, so confident, so sure?

How can he write himself into her head, into her heart? How can he read what she is thinking? How can he see so deep inside her? Every secret. Every wish, Every desire.

And how does he make her body react in the way that it does? Sometimes despite herself.

And where did this overpowering urge to please him come from?

Is it her nature?

Or his nurture?

I first wrote this nine years ago – the question is sometimes asked

Dancers

My dreams

are often filled

with shadows

thin echoes

sad whispers

fading ghosts.

.

But sometimes

they are filled

with dancers.

Beautiful

elegant

sensual

dancers.

.

Perhaps tonight

you will dance

for me.

Those which touched me – 2022

Playing Piano

Those of you who have read me for a while will know I listen to a great deal of music. My tastes are broad, from rock to jazz, hip hop to blues, R&B to classical, opera to indie, and many genres in between. And I enjoy music from all over the world.

I listen to a lot of new albums, and these are my fifteen favourites from those released in 2022 that came to my attention. Each one, in its own way, excited, moved, touched, impressed and delighted me.

They are listed in the order I heard them. The three with asterisks are my favourites, with the Ezra Collective album definitely taking first spot.

Imarhan – Aboogi

Black Country, New Road – Ants from up There

Kojey Radical – Reasons to Smile

Rosalia – Motomami

*Kate Tempest – The Line is a Curve

Wet Leg – Wet Leg

Florence + The Machine – Dance Fever

Porridge Radio – Waterslide, Diving Board, Ladder to the Sky

Paulo Nutini – Last Night in the Bittersweet

*Gwenno – Tresor

Sam Fender – Seventeen Going Under

The Big Moon – Here is Everything

Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Cool it Down

Dry Cleaning – Stumpwork

*Ezra Collective – Where I’m meant to be

If you ever get a chance to listen to any of them, I hope you enjoy.

Hungry taste

Art by Steve Hanks

Oh to lay kisses

on your legs

from your elegant calves

to the soft skin

of your inner thighs,

parting your lips

and filling my mouth

with your hungry taste.

Distant Presence

Your distant presence

curls around me

like smoke

like liquid

like ivy

like a cat

like a dancer

like a lover

your exquisite body

finding

the perfect fit.

Not a brand new post – but I like it. And the feel of your distant presence.

Unblind me

A dark, dense

unforgiving night

is stalking

this ancient house.

Its blackness

has seeped through

the leaded windows

invaded the room

stolen the light

and touched my eyes.

Only your beauty

can unblind me.

Name

Before I knew you

your name

was just

another name.

.

Now

when I see it

or hear it

or read it

or write it

I cannot help

but catch

my breath.

Berries

Outside

in today’s cold wind

I could not help but think

of you

bound with rope

your exquisite nipples

proud and erect

and as hard

as unripened berries

perfectly defined

against the material

of your dress.
