SwirlingFire: See You Next Tuesday

Reading Time: 4 minutes See You Next Tuesday Tuesday 14 May 2019 “See You Next Tuesday” Tuesday’s I always want to sleep as long as possible, invariably, I wake up really early, before six am and can’t settle back to sleepy snoozing. I then have 7 or 8 hours of restless pacing or trying to find errands or jobs around the house… Read More »

SwirlingFire: Gratitude

Reading Time: 4 minutes Gratitude It’s the weirdest thing. Seeing my Twitter @name in a compilation list  – The Top 100 Sex Blogging Superheroes of 2019 I’m not a nuts and bolts, dildo testing, vibrator wielding, uncovered gusset angled writer. Whilst, I quickly add – zero judgements of others – this is, after all, how we learn from each other and find our… Read More »

SwirlingFire: One Wish

Reading Time: 4 minutes One Wish Thoughts keep swirling into view then out again. My head aches from too many thoughts. I’m not a scholarly deep thinker I’m an over thinker An over analyser The last few days (at time of writing) have not been the best.  I thought I was doing a lot better.  It’s the first meltdown I’ve had in… Read More »

The Trousers of Time (at The Crossroads)

Reading Time: 5 minutes   There’s a moment in time during childhood that I can pinpoint as to when my life changed irrevocably.  The fork in the road took me out of one placid inevitability into a chaotic future that still has repercussions each time the butterfly flaps its wings. Obviously, as a child, the choice was made for me.  What no… Read More »

SwirlingFire: The Concierge

Reading Time: 4 minutes The Concierge I miss the man he pretended to be I fell for a mirage The essence his spells hypnotised me The mindWizard training Ensorcell A new milestone I never expected You’re never alone When cruelly rejected Humiliation is minor The lasting effects You feel all the guilt As your mind is swept clean Boundaries erased Sleight of… Read More »

SwirlingFire: Betrayed

Reading Time: 3 minutes Betrayed I saw the idea to write daily via a semi pro writer/tweeter. It was to write 365 words everyday.  I bent the directive to help maintain focus. I call it my #365Words. As I attempted the first few days, I found I had started to write prose, sometimes loosely rhyming, yet not a specific rhyming couplets style. … Read More »

SwirlingFire: Nightmares and Dreams

Reading Time: 2 minutes Nightmares and Dreams Ahhh the innocent days of making a wish on the Blue Moon, so many years ago, a once in a lifetime opportunity. Taking an enormous gamble. The risk of a lifetime. Facts, truth and information unknown. A seductive mystery A distinguished mastery A deception Moon madness That one wish that broke me Irrevocably My dreams… Read More »

SwirlingFire: The “Why?” Of blogging

Reading Time: 4 minutes The “Why?” Of blogging I’m forever trying to figure out what I’ve done in this life to attract abusive, malevolent, intrusive, selfish, violent – verbal, physical and bullying – behaviour from two faced judgemental “perfect” people. It still continues, without direct contact – unprovoked. There will be more exploratory blogs of processing that will be written before I… Read More »

[F4TFriday] I Write

Reading Time: 4 minutes   I write. For work I’ve written dry technical documents for far too many years.  It’s a feature of the tech world that when someone has spent long enough at the coal face such that they’re quite valuable in that role, they get set to writing documents and specifications about it.  The ability to spell and use grammar… Read More »

SwirlingFire: Colour Me Stupid

Reading Time: 5 minutes   Colour Me Stupid The #F4TFriday prompt #111 asks for words to live by: “Not my circus, Not my (flying) Monkeys” For the most part, I don’t have many happy memories as they occurred either side of something unpleasant imprinted in my mind.  Sadly the good parts were blocked along with any unpleasantness. There are now some better… Read More »

[F4TFriday] Live Your Truth

Reading Time: 4 minutes   Let’s face it, the majority of the words we live by are given to us, with varying degrees of force, by people who want to control us, make us conform to their concepts of how we should live.  They are thrown at us all our lives, if we let them.

SwirlingFire: Light in the Dark

Reading Time: 6 minutes Content Advisory General references to rape and rape-play. NO details or descriptions.   Light in the Dark Do you acknowledge CNC/RAPE fantasy and DV/RAPE to be totally different ? CNC is seen as a “taboo” kink – mainly by those of us who don’t understand what it involves.  Far from any awkward ways of describing what is or… Read More »

SwirlingFire: Swirly’s Grand Day Out

Reading Time: 4 minutes Swirly’s Grand Day Out Born October 2016, a caged bird – released, broken, dull feathers, betraying a breath that was almost extinguished.  Parallel similarities to the mythical Phoenix. From flames comes death (you google it) to a pile of Ashes.  The time between fully destroyed and dormant, until tiny glowing embers caught on the wind, enough to repeat… Read More »

SwirlingFire: Selfie or Selfish

Reading Time: 5 minutes Selfie or Selfish Quick glimpses into people’s lives are fascinating.  I find myself zooming in on the background to gain a peek into personalities.  All I gain from this is that I have a remarkably messy bedroom and many of you have storage solutions that would put Marie Kondo to shame! Why do adults on Twitter social media… Read More »

[F4TFriday] Movies

Reading Time: 4 minutes This prompt is a bit outside my normal thought patterns.  First, the last movie I was interested enough to see in the cinema on its release was Close Encounter of the Third Kind (1977) – yes, it’s been 42 years since I’ve been in a cinema.  And, second, my general lack of interest in sex.  Or in the… Read More »
