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 ...

Inch by Inch

I am the poetic cartographer

of your sacred body.

I will discover you

and map you,

explore you

and draw you,

observe you

and describe you,

chart you

and render you

inch by perfect inch.

Something about you

 

There is something

about you

a quality

an intelligence

a wit

a generosity

of spirit

even more compelling

even more adorable

even more desirable

than the exquisite beauty

of your bone

and muscle

and of your hair

and skin.

Waiting

 

A pale

silver-gold

wintry sun

caresses

the walls

and strokes

the furnishings.

 

This late

November afternoon

is silent

hushed

and still.

 

Yet with one eye

half-open

as if waiting

for something

or someone.

First sighting

 

I remember

the first time

I saw you

I raised an eyebrow

shook my head

sighed

smiled

sipped my wine

and inwardly applauded

in sincere

and silent

admiration.

And then

 

I thought

I had become

immune to beauty

indifferent to sexy

unmoved by submission

unstirred by intelligence

unexcited by control

untouched by desire

unaffected by dance

and then

there was you.

Dark secrets

art-by-victoria-selbach

 

I have learned

to love the way

night descends

fast and early

at this time of year,

cloaking trees, hedges and fields

hiding streams and rivers

blurring edges

disguising shapes

swallowing buildings

 

and concealing

all our dark

and dangerous

secrets.

.

Dark chord

 

I please some,

I disappoint others,

and for sure

I make the majority

yawn.

 

But sometimes,

now and again,

I will strike

a deep

dark

chord.
