Heart! We Will Release Him


Heart, we will release him!

(Inspired by Emily Dickinson)


Heart, we will release him

From his unwitting prison walls;

Soul, we will grant his escape

Before the evening falls.


Mind, we will unlock him

From fantasies he did not see.

Breath, we will exhale him

So that we can all be free.


Fool, we will admit it –

Our walls were invisible to him.

Image, we will both resign

That chances were in fact too slim.


Arms, we will unfold him

From our unfelt embrace

Eyes, we will look away

And gaze no longer at his face.


Heart please help us hurry

Lest, when we pause to think of him,

Our weakness overtakes us,

And we imprison him again.


Familiar Comfort


For two decades it has provided warmth.

Though now covered by a more fashionable gold brocade comforter, it is still there, familiar, comforting, consistent.

It has become somewhat frayed by time and use and moves and stains that needed washing.

On the colder nights it is not enough to keep the winter at bay.

But it is always there and always has been.  It is known.  It is part of life.  And there are times when its familiar softness

Makes the winter much much easier to bear.

Thank You


The very kind author of the blog, His Beloved Submissive – – nominated me for an award, which I very much appreciate.

There are usually questions that go along with nominations, and this one is no exception:

1. If you could change one thing, what would you change?  

I would live somewhere where it snows

2. If you could repeat an age, what would it be? 

22 – there was something I knew was right for me but of which my parents disapproved – I would do it anyway

3. What one thing really scares you? 

Something happening to my children

4. What is one dream you have not completed, and do you think you’ll be able to complete it? 

I would love to sing on Broadway.  I have no foreseeable way to complete that, but I haven’t ruled it out… 😉

5. If you could be someone else for one day, who would it be? 

I honestly can’t think of anyone I would like to be besides me……though I wouldn’t mind being joined by someone special 🙂

I love reading the blogs I follow, so nomination is always a tough call, but these definitely come to mind:

May I


May I open my heart

And hands

May I see and be seen

May I kneel

May I trust

May I reach out my hand

To be taken

May I ask

May I offer

May I share my

Secret desire

May I serve?

she remembers



she remembers

the first time she heard his voice

trusting him, his trust in her

opening, awakening, feeling

she remembers

desire, hers and his

feeling beautiful

stretching, being stretched

kneeling, bowing, surrendering

she remembers

thrill, arousal, flying, 

the pounding of blood in her ears

his hand coming down swiftly

sensation, color, taste

she remembers

the journey, the lessons, the freedom

she remembers 

safety, danger, light, darkness

being bound, dancing, laughter

tears, strong arms, complete nakedness

she remembers

and she smiles
