Char__ Posted December 27, 2022 Posted December 27, 2022 What do you want? The voice whispers so silkily, so seductively in my ear. What do I want? I want you to quiet this buzzing in my brain. I want you to slow me down. Force me to listen, to focus. To wait. Make me learn patience. Make me feel the trembling apprehension, the quivering excitement. I want you to lead me, a step at a time, down the winding road of trust. Let the silent padding of my bare feet follow behind you until you could loose the rope and I’d keep walking. And then, when we’re there, I want you to witness my vulnerability, see me for who I really am. Stroke the threads that make up the secret core of me. Pluck them, and make them chime. Torment me, degrade me, show me how I can please you. Let me crawl for you; crawl to you. Let me stare into your eyes and see cruelty and compassion, mercy and ruthlessness. Hard edges and soft warmth. Hands to mold me and a mind to twist me up and leave me pliant. Obsequious. Submissive. That’s what I want.
