I am not graceful or focused or patient.

But with braided raw silk in my hands, I become another thing entirely.

My field of vision narrows, focused on ties I bind with uncharacteristic grace. I find a rhythm — slow and even — as I take up the slack, syncopated by quick pulls on free ends to secure what I know is mine. I lose myself in the aesthetics of parallel and perpendicular while he dissolves into nothing more than the object around which I wrap myself.

He is not still or passive or easily contained.

But when his pale skin is crossed with plaited cord, he becomes another thing entirely.

The bindings pull tighter. His arms and chest become less and less useful until they’re nothing more than chiseled flesh for me to admire — useless to him, beautiful for me. His body calms and breathing slows as he watches me with the same fascination I often feel towards him. He transforms into the object that needs to feel my bindings, into the boy who is secured, despite the fact he didn’t need securing.

  1. I love how this both so poetic and highly erotic, the pace and rhythmn of it. The use of the words parallel and perpendicular–who knew they could be so sexy. And plaited and syncopated. The beauty of the words makes it hard to concentrate on what you’re actually saying, which is beautifully deep as well…

    • Thank you, DDD. You’re comments are always so thoughtful and encouraging. :) I do find bondage beautifully aesthetic, and poetic, and I’m glad what I wrote reflected that.

    • Heya Michael! Glad you’re back. :)

      I haven’t written much over the past week, on the count of all the time I spent doing things worth writing about. :) Of course, I’ll be telling those tales over the next week or so. There’s too much for just one post!

      Hope you are well!

  3. wow…just amazing. :)

  4. Beautifully written! Such an amazing aspect of D/s – a chance to embrace and grow previously unknown (or suppressed) parts of ourselves. And even better guiding/encouraging the same process in another.

  5. I want to hang in your kitchen with beads woven in supporting a nice fern.
