In the next few months, I am finally moving out of my childhood home, a place that has always been the source of very complicated and painful feelings for me. I haven't tried my hand at poetry for a long time, but this felt like a good time to try again. This cage has … Continue reading Almost Free
I initially wrote this as a combination of a journal entry and a letter to the sub and the sailor (the sub’s girlfriend and my submissive-esque person – we are still defining it). I am editing it to both redact names and such, as well as adding more information because I think it needs to … Continue reading Through The Ghost
Writer's Note: This is part of a much longer post, titled Changes. Jehovah Jireh: The Dinner and the Dollar Last night, I attended an annual "Ladies Dinner" with my mom, that is hosted by several local churches, including my mom's. It was my third time attending with her, and, despite my discomfort with any organized … Continue reading Jehovah Jireh: The Dinner and the Dollar
I wrote the first part of this post the other day, and I was interrupted part way through by my mom, wanting to pray with me and my husband. Remember that: it will be important later. The last few months have been... beyond taxing. I genuinely don't even know how to describe it. Hell on … Continue reading Going All In: Security and Possibility

While this blog is an outlet for … Continue reading Ratings and Feedback and Reciprocation, Oh My!

If you haven't read it yet, check it out. Don't worry, I'll wait. Back? Awesome. So, when we left our intrepid … Continue reading Teaching is Eternal
I just hit 100 followers! This is honestly a milestone I never thought I would see. The idea that even one or two people find what I have to say worth reading still kind of surprises me, let alone that there are 100 of you now! As a thank you to each of you, I … Continue reading Milestones: 100 Followers! Meet and Greet!
I feel like I have too much to write to know how to start. I also know that saying that up front is often the exact route to getting it started. Today my business deal was agreed upon, for a disgustingly small amount. I am going in on Friday to pick up a few remaining … Continue reading The Cage and The Cocoon
When I am suddenly hopping from one blog to another because the comment that I posted feels too important to not share, it's time to switch from commenting to posting. I am going to flesh out the original comment to contain a bit more background into the situation, and link to the two posts that … Continue reading Sex, Gender, Orientation, and the Role of Genetics
