SwirlingFire: The Silent Timekeeper

Reading Time: 2 minutes The Silent Timekeeper I’m the full stop in mid sentence The pause in every breath The funeral march that envelops The disorderly disgrace I’m the half drunk cup of coffee With the lipstick smeared rim The swirling of the liquid weather turning grim I’m the clicking of each footstep The echo in your head I’m thoughts that keep… Read More »

[F4Thought] Home Is Not A Setting On My SatNav

Reading Time: 4 minutes   Home is not a physical place that I recognise.  I was uprooted from the last place I last considered to be a physical place to call home at the age of eight.  I’ve never since thought of a building, town or even a wide geographic location as home. The closest I got to that was all those… Read More »

[F4Thought] Intimacy

Reading Time: 5 minutes   This wasn’t a prompt I thought I could write about, then I saw the posts that have already been linked and they set me thinking. One of the things to surprise me was the number of people who separated sex and intimacy.  Some going so far as to actively consider them as separate activities that they would… Read More »

[TellMeAbout] The Non-Masochist Painslut

Reading Time: 4 minutes   Pain – Now there’s a word that splits me in two.  In general terms, I hate pain.  Even mild discomfort is something I avoid in daily life.  When it comes to D/s, it’s a whole different ball game.  It gives both my current domme and my former mistress a giggle to bracket me as a painslut.

SwirlingFire: 2019 The Year of Self Discovery

Reading Time: 4 minutes 2019 The Year of Self Discovery I wasn’t going to do any year summary round up, I now feel a bit guilty for not making a list. I’ve recently posted #SwirlyApprovedList and also my top ten most read blogs.  Reading many other end of year blogs, I feel I’ve been hasty and ungrateful.  Which was never the intention.… Read More »

[#F4T] 2019: That Was The Year That Was

Reading Time: 9 minutes This post, published just before Christmas wasn’t linked to any prompt.  Very timely that May and Floss have “2019 in a Nutshell” as the #F4T prompt to end the year.  With Christmas being somewhat crap, re-reading this post of only 10 days ago provides a larger perspective on how good a year 2019 has been in some respects.… Read More »

SwirlingFire: #SwirlyApprovedList

Reading Time: 4 minutes #SwirlyApprovedList I wasn’t going to make an end of year “list of Top Anythings” However, I have received acknowledgments this year: The Kinkly Top 100 Sex Bloggers  An immense shock, tears and self reflection. It was a strong punch to my reality. Although not a “mechanics of sex” BDSM, kink and d/s blog – it is exactly about… Read More »

Christmas on Beasley Street

Reading Time: 4 minutes   There’s no real message in this post, more a stream of consciousness. “Smile and the whole World smiles with you …”, thus sang Louis Armstrong and many others who covered the song.  When you can’t, or don’t want to face the world, it’s not so easy to see who’s smiling. The Sunday before Christmas I was smiling,… Read More »
