Purveyor of Pleasure

Delving into my humanity and the joys and pitfalls of an overanalytical nature.

The Cactus

This was written by my wonderful Dominus. I think it’s beautiful (of course I would, it’s about us) and so I wanted to share it with you.

He and I have talked about him doing guest posts on here, which I was going to make this one except he preferred it if I posted it as a quote from him rather than having him post it from his account. Hopefully we shall see a few posts from him in the near-to-distant future.

The Cactus

The Desert almost claimed me

This salted Wasteland
So barren in its Homogeny

I withered

And to survive
I became a Cactus
A natural part of the Desert

Yet not letting anyone past my spikes

And I endured

Until I saw the Lotus
Stubbornly refusing
To wither under the heat

Unwilling to become part of the Desert
Reminding me that even a Cactus

Can bloom

  1. That was absolutely beautiful. Very touching. Thank you for sharing!

  2. @Coy Pink: Thank you, and you’re welcome! =) I was rather moved when I read it, he’s so cute about his poetry, and was all embarrassed when I posted it (though I asked if I could first, he was still cute about it).
