Someday Bloody Someday

Some days
I feel like a territory
A property in a portfolio
A something to defend at all costs.

Some days
Beasts roar with wild rage
Blood spurts across my face
Fights break out in the hallway.

Some days
I’m wrapped in bandages
To keep the sun from my eyes
And I’m fed oranges from far away.

Some day
I’ll look back and I’ll laugh
And I’ll count all my stars as lucky
I see them now – through the bars.

  1. The first thing that entered my mind when I read this was, “powerful wistfulness”…a seeming contradiction, given that (for me) wistfulness connotes a passive/sighing longing….your version, however, beats with the heart of a lion….brilliant….so great I had to read it twice…thanks for sharing 🙂

      • “Dominance and submission (also called D/s) is a set of behaviors, customs, and rituals involving the submission of one person to another …” (Wikipedia)
        I only ask because it was Liked and commented on by someone who is into that scene and when I read it back it was a perfect match. Just wondered if it affected you on some subliminal (or conscious) level? 🙂

      • Hm…I don’t believe in (a) God, but I do believe we are all connected by energy and therefore, everything we do, even the smallest thing, has an impact of each other. I like to believe we strive to be influential without ‘submission-like’ behavior…Unfortunately, history has proven me wrong.
        As to your poem….”I read it back”; do yo mean literally reading it back – from last line back towards first line ? Cause, that also gives a thought provoking insight.
        And rambling again…not even sure, this answers your question, haha

      • Hahaha – It goes no way to way towards answering my question, Patty, but it provides me with thougth provoking insights into your heart, and what could be finer than that! 🙂
        And no, I didn’t mean read it backwards. But now that you say that – I will. 😉

      • Oh my.. hello!…that was interesting too read during lunch, hihi Well, it is kind of obvious now for me too, my previous respond didn’t answer your question at all, hahaha
        Although…kinda did…energy is definitely involved 😉
        As a person who doesn’t find it easy to be out of control, I think I am -without actually practicing D/s literally – dominant. But in a submissive way, if that is possible? Taking over, ’cause the pleasure of my partner is more important than my own..
        I hope I understood the terminology right this time, else this is going to be a very awkward conversation, hahaha

      • I think you’ve got the idea now, except I wasn’t truly referring to your normal ‘relationships’ and whether they fitted into D or s, it was more about whether you were a part of that ‘scene’. I suppose, on reflection, the very fact that you didn’t recognise the name for the scene would indicate that you are not part of it. But having said that it might be called something else entirely in Germany (or the Netherlands). 🙂
        Sounds to me that you are quite balanced and sane, though. It’s all good, Patty. 😉

      • Hahaha, no I am definitely not part of this scene…it sounds similar to SM, but I suspect there is a difference?
        Sane? Me? Not sure 😉
        Are you part of this scene Robert? Since, I find it intriguing why people would choose too…

      • No, I’m not part of that scene, Patty. 🙂
        I only ask because this one other person, who is part, happened along.
        I’m pretty sure you’re sane – but then again, what do I know!
