The submisive

Am I sick?

Is there something wrong with me?

Because I am turned on by being taken

Being used by a power greater than my own?


Many think I am weak

Just because I submit

In this world of independence

I need someone to depend on

I am told I need no man

But that is not who I am


You do not know the strength

It takes to suppress my ego

To give my will to anotherís control

I must give up personal control

To stop acting in defense

I give up my fear of loss of status and worth


I give the gift of no resistance

To the Dom of my choice

A lifestyle contract

And a safety word

That guides our world


Being submissive is not just about the sex

It extends beyond the bedroom

Itís a lifestyle I choose to live

Regardless of what others think


Without access to my inner being

The reward of my body has no meaning

I give only to those who truly deserve

The one for me receives the key


You can not force me to submit

That is my choice and my will alone

Use of force, intimidation or fear

That is not submission

It is only abuse


I take responsibility

For my submissive ways

No government, religion or any person

Can cause me to feel shame

I will not feel guilt

For who I am

I will not allow myself to be censored

I will be free


I am not corrupt

I am sane

I am healthy

I am not sick

I am me

I accept the submissive me


My Master gives me all I need

I return and fulfill his commands

He takes care of his pet

In return for my inner self.



Author's Notes:
I dedicate this to jolen. I hope I did this right. I can not do this justice, for it falls too short. Oh, by the way jolen, the Master is looking for you. Lol Enjoy!

Huh? I submit to God... that would make me submissive, I guess... But I also submit to no man... well, except my employer, for the time being... So am I a Dom? I don't know... I honestly don't get this poem.

Wow.  I am speechless, how honest, and true to every word.

I can't help but admire the courage that it took to post this, and also your conviction in choosing this lifestyle which shows that you perhaps have a greater understanding of human nature/purpose than most of us will ever reach.

Congratulations on your award.

To me love is about belonging
to belong is not to be weak
only the one with a strong ego
will fullo know what submitting is about
Thank you for a beautiful poem -Pia

People think that to be submissive is to be weak. I think to be submissive can be a strength as you so rightly poit out here.

It takes strength to walk a different road and not fall into the pack mentality.

I think I may be a peculiar mixture of all of this. Dom/sub, did a fine job with this, and although I am not well schooled on this world, I do happen to believe people have their own lives and should be able to lead them as so..Barbie
Comment By: FreeGlata on July 12, 2006 07:51:44 AM Report
I think that you did great justice to this! It's not shameful to be submissive...but some people tend to see it that way. Everyone needs to be able to express themselves in whatever way they feel without being ridiculed for it, or being seen as weak.

Awesome job, Michael!

This is a very very good write Michael!!  Really a great poem.  Your honesty is clearly visible and you dedication.  However, I must be honest in saying, I donít understand the concept at all; I think my personality is just in a different wave length maybe.  I do respect the view points of course!!  Great write and great poem.  You really are Poe's Successor!!
