Treasure Island

Darkness (Amberly ©1/19/2013)


still black waters
the pools of solitude
they have no meaning
until a spark occurs
it glistens on the surface
something rises
born from the depths
she appears
naked and pure
lily white and unashamed
stark against the abyss
frigid obsidian knives
do not pierce her
she is unafraid
strong
she rises unharmed
her face silent and knowing
she floats on the surface
the dark forest tangled
surrounding
she is born from the depths
she is free to swim or leave
but she is home in these dark waters
and so she will stay here forever
in her Master's loving eyes

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem is written from the point of view of a female submissive who is in a D/s relationship. What may appear to be dark, cold and frightening to some is calm, tranquil and 'home' to her. She ultimately knows the strength and love that comes from her unique bond with her Master.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
