A Woman Led

26 Mar

By Simon Bolz

For this, I offer no apologies. There is nothing dirty about what I will confess: my whispers in the night, as I trace circles on your chest, should never be mistaken for shame.
I feel no guilt in wanting you. Loving you from my knees seems the natural place: you gripping my hips as the mattress hugs my face, taking more than I thought able to give.

There will be no apologies for needing this. I will not deny my want, cloak myself in coy: unless it is a game of the hard-to-get girl meets boy, you prefer me blunt.
I am most myself when I let you in. When I am over your lap or poised on the bed, I am a woman spanked, a woman adored, a woman led, and in those things, I am me.
To D, on our Anniversary.

    Pink and D,
    Happy Anniversary.

    And when people ask me what I’m going to school for, I shall tell them “to be able to write like Pink.” You may submit to D, but your words and thoughts submit to you!!

      Thanks so much, C! In the wise words of Floyd, “you don’t need no education”, C…you’ve got it already. 🙂

      (But stay in school, anyway.)

    “There will be no apologies for needing this”

    This whole post resonates with me, and especially that line. Thanks, Pink.

    Congrats on your anniversary!

      Thank you, Season! Although everyone is different, I think it’s essential to embrace our needs without shame and fear. Having someone safe, as you have with Michael and I have with D, is a key part to that. We’re lucky, eh?

    Happy Anniversary to you both. Loved your post Pink.

    Love and hugs,

      Thanks, Ronnie! It’s been a year…and what a year!

    Happy anniversary! Hope that there will be many more! (eh, that include the spankings obviously….)

      It’s been a busy couple of weeks celebrating: his birthday, my Blogiversary, our Anniversary. What a climax to a year well spent! Cheers to many more!

    Happy Anniversary, Pink! I’m as happy and proud to see you wearing the collar I gave you as you are in wearing it for me.

    • Barely Pink March 27, 2011 at 12:38 pm #

      Collar? What collar? Oh, you mean that necklace you gave me and didn’t present as anything more significant than a precious bauble? 😛 Yeah, I like wearing it, too.

    oh wow… just wow! melt me to a puddle!

      That is the sexiest champagne popping I have ever seen. Is it wrong to be turned on my inanimate (yet fizzy) objects?

    A luscious way to celebrate an anniversary – congratulations to you both. I sure you will find a perfect way to celebrate,

    • Barely Pink March 27, 2011 at 12:41 pm #

      We did, thank you! Instead of a man I did not know coming to pick me up, I spent it with the man whose face I could draw in my sleep. Very special, indeed. Thanks again, Poppy.

    Happy anniversary you two! Hope it’s wonderful!

    • Barely Pink March 27, 2011 at 12:41 pm #

      Thank you, Sierra! It was memorable. 🙂

    Pink, have a very spankingly great anniversary! And D remember, lots of chocs, roses, cuddles and champers. xx

    Pink and D,

    A very happy aniversary to you both! You guys are awesome-o!

    • Barely Pink March 27, 2011 at 12:34 pm #

      We sure have had some good times this year, many of which are chronicled here. Thanks for the well-wishes, Bonnie-jo!

    As Season mentioned…
    … “There will be no apologies for needing this”.. and I’ll add .. “I spent it with the man whose face I could draw in my sleep.

    It’s phrasing like that.. that draws me deep into the inner sanctum of your blog!

    • Barely Pink March 27, 2011 at 12:56 pm #

      Thanks, Zelle. He brings out the cheesy poet in me. 🙂

    Expert cuddlers, are hard to find, so hang on tight there Pink. BBH is top of the tree, even if occasionally when I slip into bed a wee bit late, he whispers…”you’re in so much trouble…”!

    • Barely Pink March 27, 2011 at 8:46 pm #

      Ooo-la, that makes cuddling even better! (The threat, the possibilities…the uncertainty) Cuddling is my third most favorite thing to do. I’m sure you can work out what takes the top two slots. 🙂

    “… in those things, I am me.” I love how you put this without fanfare or explanation. He has to cherish that thought …

    • Barely Pink March 28, 2011 at 6:04 pm #

      I believe he does, rusty. I never thought I was naturally submissive, but there was always something missing. That was it. I found the missing “thing”.
