I’d pretty much do anything
to show how using lower case text works.
Words are important to me
in a way that sunshine feels on a grey day
when you sit against a warm window
it’s nature’s hug when nothing else works.
Lower case words are meant to show
a soft demurely kind of way of expressing
a submissive role in a relationship.
And there’s that word, I wish it were
all together something not so demeaning.
It’s hard to fight against perceptions,
just because a person uses pronouns
in the lower case. i, me, and my
are ways of showing
a top or bottom positions
in our text heavy world.
The Dominant and submissive believe
in the natural order of things.
Imagine if you could, a pack of grey wolves
they’re all pack leaders, totally on top
truly unable to stop the aggression always at war with another.
That thing the wolves do,
when they’re mating. Even they need
the natural Dominant/submissive balance.
Using lower case is a privilege because
you choose ‘the One’
who has the best qualities.
I stand in awe when I see a natural submissive.
It often sounds subtle a little like this,
“i want what pleases You”
There all kinds and types on both sides
and if you haven’t abandoned this poem by now, thank you.
Having an open mind truly makes a difference.
Keep in mind though,
there are tons of disastrous relationships,
just like on any first time date
keep your guard up against the person
who demands you play the part at the start.
This lifestyle doesn’t demand you use
the lower case, not until, you’re ready to
tryout the Dominant to see just how
things are negotiated. At first, both voices
are true and equal, meaning
use upper case on those pronouns.
It’s pretty amazing when the letters kneel
on their own accord, but I warn you
you’ll forever be fighting
unbelievably smart keyboards.
