Time

Time

It is the strangest thing,
dievca has never experienced this with anyone else.

With Master,
time disappears.

It doesn’t matter what Master and dievca are doing:
making dinner, cleaning house, relaxing, playing, working, taking a shower, whatever.
Either Master or dievca will glance at a clock
and time has flown on.

It is beautiful.

No boredom.

No counting the hours.

It is dangerous.

Losing a schedule.

Then, thrown out of the mists in a jarring manner.

The desire to stay and lose time is an aphrodisiac.
But, it is not always possible to indulge.

So, dievca will treasure the loss of time with Her Master.

 

The quote above is a paraphrase, but I love the sentiment.

Here is the poem from which it was gleaned and it’s original meaning:

Once I Pass’d Through a Populous City
by Walt Whitman

Once I pass’d through a populous city imprinting my brain for future
use with its shows, architecture, customs, traditions,
Yet now of all that city I remember only a woman I casually met
there who detain’d me for love of me,
Day by day and night by night we were together—all else has long
been forgotten by me,
I remember I say only that woman who passionately clung to me,
Again we wander, we love, we separate again,
Again she holds me by the hand, I must not go,
I see her close beside me with silent lips sad and tremulous.

    Yes, time passes unnoticed when you are with your love. Where does the day go?

    I love that! It’s a little new to me, but my favorite thing these days is staying up late talking and giggling, and hearing him say, “Ok, it’s after midnight, and you have to go to sleep.” I’m always shocked, how does time pass so quickly! …But then, he makes me laugh twenty more times before we actually do fall asleep!!

    I’m always saddened that time goes by so fast. We don’t get a lot of alone time and we haven’t had a lot of time away where it’s.just the two of us for more than 24 hours. I always feel like we just got into a special groove and then the spell breaks and reality is back. Hours magically vanished and I feel like we just got started. I’m both happy and sad. Sigh.

    this is as it should be … and so very beautiful
    … I write to try and remember … but just being with Him – time is no more – space and reason disappear into nothing … He is my whole world – even a single moment seems like a blissful lifetime.

    Dievca is such a treasured friend to me … thank you dear one for your beautiful thoughts
