Draw Blood

I need to find that edge again … that feeling like I’m drawing a hand over a knife blade … daring it to cut me …

A good friend has warned me about “poking the bear” … and I never have been able to learn …

I want the face slap that clears my mind … though it’s never easily done … I want someone to care enough to pull on the leash … hard … and make me “stay” … show me …

He knows my comfort zone … where I need to be … hands offered … head bowed … bind me … please … oh please …

Resistance gone and nothing to think but how to obey …

But he also knows the fight … the will … the stubborn determination … tears will slow me down … but never stop me …

If you can’t draw blood you aren’t worth my time … but if you can … I will show you courage … I will adore you with every breath … and I will show you what it really means to love …
