helpless

June 9, 2019

I realize that being a woman is a lot
like being a planet — I can’t decide
what my gravity attracts. I am as helpless
as I am powerful. I am very powerful.

Rita Feinstein

It is only thanks to your good looks
I can take part
in the rites of love.

Mystical ecstasies,
treasons delightful
as a crimson lipstick,
a perverse rococo
of psychological involutions,
sweetness of carnal longings
that take your breath,
pits of despair
sinking to the very bottom of the world:
all this I owe to you.

How tenderly every day I should
lash you with a whip of cold water,
if you alone allow me to possess
beauty and wisdom irreplaceable.

The souls of my lovers
open to me in a moment of love
and I have them in my dominion.
I look as does a sculptor
on his work
at their faces snapped shut with eyelids,
martyred by ecstasy,
made dense by happiness.
I read as does an angel
thoughts in their skulls
I feel in my hand
a beating human heart,
I listen to the words
which are whispered by one human to another
in the frankest moments of one’s life.

I enter their souls,
I wander
by a road of delight or of horror
to lands as inconceivable
as the bottoms of the oceans.
Later on, heavy with treasures
I come slowly
to myself.

O, many riches,
many precious truths
growing immense in a metaphysical echo,
many initiations
delicate and startling
I owe to you, my thigh.

The most exquisite refinement of my soul
would not give me any of those treasures
if not for the clear, smooth charm
of an amoral little animal.

a seat cushion

These two women treated me like a seat cushion – something to be suffocated and smothered.

be dominated

June 9, 2019

I’m an Indian girl who lusts after black women. I love light skin women to dark chocolate strong, independent black women. I think they’re beautiful, and sexy and so dominating. I want to serve one and be dominated by her, and to satisfy her womanhood.

Great ideas have been lost because the people who had them were sober again in the morning.
