Image for the poem TENDER STRUGGLE


The moment is come, dear one, and once again †
I remember when you try to surrender, and † †
I recognize how you agonize. †
How tender you become, open and trembling, †
even as you try to retreat. †
To seal away anything resembling your † †
submission whenever we meet. † †
I've come to understand that part of † †
the man you are †
who is strong yet unsure about what still † †
remains unsaid. †
You bow your head because I see clearly † †
the tears begin to flow. †
But darling (my hand lifts his chin so I may † †
gaze lovingly at him), †
please be assured and know, † †
when it's you I possess in total submissiveness, †
I give you more than my tears. Now then † †
put aside your fears. Do as I ask and come here.
