I call myself Dominant

Arcade card

 

I call myself ‘Dominant’ because it best describes my sexual orientation, my desire to teach, nurture, protect and direct – and also my tastes and desires – in way that is straightforward and unequivocal.

It is not because I expect you to fall gratefully to your knees and call me Sir.

It simply does not work like that.

Art from a vintage postcard – origin unknown

I first posted this two years ago because the arrogant posturing, words, attitudes and expectations of many online wannabe ‘Doms’ made me laugh. They still do.

No stopping

 

If

I could lay

a kiss

in the sweet

sacred hollow

of your thoat

I would not

stop there.

Currency

art-by-joseph-lorusso

 

There are those

whose bodies

become common currency

displayed for anyone

and everyone.

Online digital galleries

of themselves.

 

I am drawn

to the shy girl

who dances

only for me,

her coinage

newly minted.

Opportunity

 

Opportunity

is transient

fleeting

momentary

elusive

ephemeral

evanescent.

 

In a moment

it is gone

as if it had

never been.

 

Opportunity

is to be grasped

with both hands

before it vanishes

forever.

Never so aware

 

art-by-paul-kelley

 

She has never

been so aware

of her body

within her clothes,

the way the material

kisses and caresses

grazes and brushes

smooths and strokes.

 

She has never

been so aware

of her body

within her clothes,

and to the new

sexual sensitivity

of her skin

to their touch.

Spread

 

It is merely

an observation

but you would look

exquisite

spread

naked and wide

on my big

antique

iron and brass

bed.

Black dresses

Art by Fabian Perez

 

I am not fond of Christmas

especially when it begins

so early

tacky and commercial

a festival of bad taste.

.

And yet it is a season of parties

mistletoe kisses

flirtation and assignation

and lovely women

in sexy black dresses

and seriously seductive heels.

.

I wrote and posted this about the same time two years ago and also last year. It amused me so I have reposted it now.
