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 ...

Approval

Lana Del Rey

She studies herself

in the full-length mirror.

She knows that he cannot see her, does not see her, may never see her.

Yet she turns through a three hundred and sixty degrees, Aware of her breasts beneath the shirt, her arse and her thighs, tight in her jeans, the way the morning light touches her skin.

She runs her hands through her hair and lets it fall.

She hopes he likes the way she looks.

And though his eyes may never find her

She still seeks his approval.

Cover

 

She captures

her image

for him

on her phone

and cannot

help looking

like a cover

of vogue.

Change me

 

You might

charm me

seduce me

engage me

.

You might

excite me

enchant me

delight me

.

You might

thrill me

bewitch me

amaze me

.

You might

inspire me

arouse me

inflame me.

.

But you will

never ever

change me.

Maybe somewhere

 

Maybe

you are out there

somewhere.

 

Maybe

somewhere close

beyond fields

and trees

roads and cities

valleys and streams.

 

Maybe

somewhere far

beyond borders

and flags

mountains and lakes

continents and seas.

 

Maybe

somewhere

beneath

different skies

in a different land

with a different tongue

and a different skin.

.

Maybe

you are out there

somewhere.

 

Maybe

you are out there

somewhere

waiting

for me.

The Call

 

Sexual submission

is not for the needy

or the lost

or the lonely

or the bored

or the casually curious.

 

It is for the independent

intelligent girl

who knows the call

the ache

the yearning

to be owned

and fulfilled

deep in her soul.

Sunday

 

Sunshine

in the garden

art and poetry

music and prose

tea and conversation

desire and adoration

chance and possibility

wine and wonder

beauty and silence

a Sunday

in this life.

Beautiful violence

Art by Annick Bouvattier

There is

a beautiful violence

in the way her hips roll

like thunder

her eyes flash

defiance

and her heels

sound like gunfire

as she walks

across a room.
