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 ...

Man of the World

 

Many of my ‘songs I like but you might not have heard’ posts are from fairly recent times.

This one is different. It goes all the way back to 1969. It is Fleetwood Mac in one of its early line ups, long before the ‘Rumours’ Buckingham and Nicks days.

When I came across it for the first time at some point much later, it was like an electric shock. It seemed to have been written about me.

Some days acutely so.

“Man Of The World”

Shall I tell you about my life
They say I’m a man of the world
I’ve flown across every tide
And I’ve seen lots of pretty girlsI guess I’ve got everything I need
I wouldn’t ask for more
And there’s no one I’d rather be
But I just wish that I’d never been born

And I need a good woman
To make me feel like a good man should
I don’t say I’m a good man
Oh, but I would be if I could

I could tell you about my life
And keep you amused I’m sure
About all the times I’ve cried
And how I don’t want to be sad anymore
And how I wish I was in love

When the world conspires

 

I am here

when the world conspires

against you.

 

I am here

on your side

without judgement

without reservation

without qualification

without criticism

without presumption

without disapproval

without condemnation.

I am here

on your side.

 

I am here

when the world conspires

against you.

Guessed

 

She has always kept

her fantasy,

submissive and dark,

as her best kept secret,

even from herself.

 

She is surprised

and aroused to find

this distant stranger

has already guessed.

Shiver

Art by Yanjun Cheng

A shiver.

A delicious, electric, thrilling shiver.

An ice hot sensation rushing from the nape of her neck to the base of her spine.

It hurries to her throat and steals her breath.

It colours her skin with a sudden, rosy, tell-tale blush.

It hardens her nipples as if touched by a kiss

It dances wild across her belly and hips.

It makes her gasp as it tugs at her thighs

It penetrates her sex.

A shiver

Running down her spine

Coming from him.

A post from three years ago. Yet hopefully it might resonate.

Happy

 

I am happy

keyboard beneath my fingers

a warm sun on my face

seafood on my plate

snow under my skis

hounds at my heels

a log fire in winter

music in my ears

family smiling

a good book

strong tea

red wine

and you.

.

Especially you.

Over and Over

 

If I had you

over and over

and over

and over

and over

again,

I would still

want you

over and over

and over

and over

and over

again.

Something important

 

I was going to write

something important, relevant, meaningful and deep

something incisive, prophetic, intuitive and bold

something intelligent, articulate, perceptive and wise

something that would make you see me

in a different light.

But all I can think about

is removing your clothes.
