11:27 pm - An Offering to My Mistress
Her mood is black
This cheerless night
I cower before her
In supplication
Awaiting her displeasure

Her eyes glitter cruelly
Through strands of ebony silk
Enfolding her like a cloak
Hiding her gifts
The silky flesh I long to taste

Her nails
Like crimson daggers
Rip through my breast
Through my flesh
As a raven's talons through carrion
Rending flesh to bloody ribbons
And spilling dark tears
To pool beneath her feet

D.N. October 2000

That's gorgeous - but I always thought that YOU were the Mistress. :) Why didn't you ever give that to me?

Thank you :).

And though I might be the Mistress now (lol), I think you definitely held the title back then. I may have been forward and occasionally ferocious, but for the most part, I was spellbound.

I really don't know why I didn't give it to you then. Intimidation, perhaps. Self-consciousness. I was so much in awe of your talents as an artist and a writer, (not to mention your beauty and intelligence) that I don't think I'd have dared show it to you then. As confident as I may have seemed, some of that was definitely bravado. If you absolutely hated it now, I would be disappointed, but I could handle it. But then... I'd have been crushed. Not that you'd have ever told me it was awful anyway. You're much too diplomatic for that :).
