Surrendering


Each time I surrender freely what is mine to you
because my 24/7 responsibilities leaving me craving
its opposites
a craving to relax
not to control
but to experience
the control of the other-you;
I sometimes enjoy it when you take the lead.
I experience new vistas
where Submission’s Excitements
lies in surrendering control to you
to your craving of me.
in your primal desire
of me
your excitement
of me
where I am thrust
away
away from my rigid self
to simply feeling
your need of me
and my need
of your need
which excites me.
But then to alternate
as I rise
to reverse emotions
command you
feel you
respond to me leading
then we two
in tandem
ensemble;
your 25 year old
needs
now commanded
by my experience
in our May December

yin and yang
rioting
my freedom
and your pliancy
melds
in the instants
primal
scene
where
patriarch al
paternity
does not govern
intimacies
just we two in this
meant
to be
our true human destiny.
Tell me not
between we consenting too
who is to
and who is not signed to some
state contract
tell me not
what experiences
between us
is subject
to state decrees
on pain of
of life or death
or crippling guilt
and scorn
tell me not
how to react
to the stultifying
sameness
of external
command
and decrees;
if I
sometimes
wish relief from command roles
and wish to experience
how surrender
feels

giving
freely
this something I think
all those
who deeply love
crave
thus
surrendering
in whatever vein
or degree
to me often
is True Love’s
True Intimacy
and Excitement.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
