We Are Parts Of A Whole

This was taken from a post on a Tumblr Blog I follow...Desire's Journey.  She posts some great things so you ought to check out her Tumblr Blog.  Anyway, I thought this was fantastic.  When I read it, I felt as though I could have written this myself.  This encompasses my views and approach to TTWD so well. 


What Is A Master?


I am a dominant man. I am just that.
I am not dominant because of any superiority on my part.
Not because I feel I am more intelligent, or wiser.
I am not dominant because of the strength or mass of my body.
I am not, nor would I want to be dominant with all women.

Yet to you, I am Master.

I am your Master only after earning your trust and I embrace your submissiveness.
I have looked into your heart and mind and clearly see your desires and passions.

You have thrown away your fears and inhibitions.
You tell me of the needs of your heart and body.
You have given me total access to your soul, and I accept the responsibility and honor.
You are a woman.
You are not weak or inferior because of it.
You are a treasure to be cherished.

We are not equal.

I have the strength of body and mind and the instinctive need to protect, possess, defend and provide for you.
You are a woman and instinctively stronger of will and heart.
Your belief in me gives me courage and direction.
Your strength disperses my doubt.
Your needs and desires encourage and give purpose to my efforts.

We are not equal. We are parts of a whole.
We complement each other and make each other complete.
My desire to dominate you is instinctive.

It is not to degrade you nor is it degrading to you because you are secure in being totally feminine.
We each recognize and accept our worth, and our need for someone to trust and fulfill our needs.

You are sure, strong and proud in your womanhood.
You do not submit as acceptance of inferiority, but from strength and passion.
You expect a man to stand strong and be a man.
You desire and flourish in the strength and control of a man.
In return you present control of your body, unqualified trust and honesty, and the faithfulness of your heart.
You submit because I have earned your trust.

Because I have opened my heart and soul to you.
Because I have listened to your words with my ears and heart and have learned to anticipate your needs and emotions. And because I have proven worthy in your eyes, you have given me the only true treasure of life;

You have given me dominance over you.
What you give is not abnormal, but pure, natural and the rarest gift a woman
could give a man.
You have given me complete and unshakable assurance of your commitment to me.
Your submissiveness is a magnificent gift and sacred responsibility.

I accept this from you with humility and joy.
I understand the rarity and purity of this gift.
I recognize it is your body and soul,
your heart and mind.
I dominate you only because you have allowed it.
I dominate only because you have allowed me to and when I see your body kneel before me, in my mind and heart you are raised above all other women and all the treasures of the earth.

What you give freely cannot in reality be bought and if it could, it would never mean the same..

  1. I love this. Every last bit of it. I'll be showing it to Master tonight because he's said the same things, just not as poetically as you have.

  2. i'e read this (or something similar before), I love it as much each time. Beautifully written, whoever it was that wrote it.
    Thank you for reminding me of it DV :)

  3. I will be sharing this with my sub! It really embodies the delicate balance between Dom and sub, a true explanation of a Dom's role with a healthy dose of raw emotion.

  4. Thanks for your comments. I'm glad you enjoyed reading it and find the beautiful meaning within it like I do.


    1. I believe in the truth of all these well expressed words

  10. Sir J...Thanks for the author info.

    Blossom and Searching...Thanks for your comments. I thought it was very touching and well written myself.

    original_me...steal is such a harsh word. LOL! You are free to copy, take and use it, as I found it in the public domain. I just suggest you give credit to the original author when/where applicable.

    Anything I post or write is available for use, as long as due credit is given to the source of such material. That being either myself or another author if it is something I have quoted or used from some other place.
