i have tied you up
and you have forgotten
the safety word
the knots keep you subdued
the ropes are of my own weaving
regret mixed with despair
a few threads left of honest desire
the knots keep you still
but you are just a shade
easy driven out by a strong light
easily chased into dusty corners
my silence keeps you silent

Beautifully put. 🙂
Thank you, friend!
Powerful poem and title.
Thank you 😊
With ropes of regret and despair, I wonder if there would be a safety word. I liked the idea of a shade being driven out by light.
S&M with spirits? … love the word choices with bondage and safety words.
It’s all about consent.
Thanks! I’m glad it spoke to you.
Domination is a powerful role. Have you ever been tied up by rope?
Just metaphorical ones.
Those can also be fun.
The voice of experience?
A lady never tells, so I will — yes!
