Chasing Me Chasing You

An uncollared submissive struggling through depression, motherhood, and the constant craving of her next orgasm.

Shading Desire

I am huge tattoo fan. I have tattoos on my body for all of the important people in my life. And appropriately, I think, I have several that represent Sir and my relationship with him. For our five-year wedding anniversary, he bought me a tattoo of calla lilies on my neck (we had them at our wedding). And, as I head back to get touch ups done on my newest piece, I have been reflecting on it’s importance.

A few years ago I was having a terrible day at work. I can’t remember why now, but I emailed Sir to tell him how bad my day was going. This is what he replied with:


From: Husband

Subject: I desire you

Where true Love burns Desire is Love’s pure flame;
It is the reflex of our earthly frame,
That takes its meaning from the nobler part,
And but translates the language of the heart.
I immediately loved it. I had never heard this piece before, nor did I have any idea who Samuel Taylor Coleridge was. But it spoke to me. I know that sounds cheesy, but it did. And knowing that Sir felt that way about me got through the rest of my bad day, and several more since.
So when Sir and I talked about a large tattoo piece for my back to represent this shift in our relationship, this poem came to mind immediately. BDSM and my commitment to Sir has become my desire. Obviously I desire Sir sexually. But I also constantly crave his direction and his praise. When he gives me an order and I can jump and instantly make his day better, it’s such a calming experience.
I desire the kink. I love Sir. It’s odd to me how those two words are not necessarily synonymous anymore. That isn’t to say that their not connected.
My tattoo artist, who is amazing (by the way), did a great job with my inspiration and helped me to show my true desire for Sir and TTWD. His hand pressing down on my back between the words is how we live. Him controlling my desire in every way.

    I love tattoos too and I love hearing where the inspiration for a tattoo comes from. The stories are almost always interesting and sweet, as is yours!

      I agree. I appreciate people who really think about what they are putting on their skin and why. I have seen some amazing art tattooed on people.

    I love my tattoos as well. I have the M on my back that was put there by S, it stands for many things and the lock on my wrist that matches the key on this wrist and the night… stars and moon… on my arm that has special meaning also. This summer when we return to Philly a forth will be added.

      Thanks. I’ve been surprised by how much we have changed as individuals and as a couple. I’m the sure my tattoos will continue to reflect that.

    What a beautiful backstory to this image, the words from that extract are wonderful, it must have been such a great thrill to have them tattooed on you as a permanent reminder xx

      Looking back, I almost wish I had gotten it somewhere on my body where I could see it every day. But I do love the way it turned out. I’m sure Sir wouldn’t mind if I put it on my arm too. 🙂
