enchantment

I came across this word a little while ago - I forget the context but it was on a bdsm chat site.

The word - enchantment - jumped out at me as if it held a special meaning. I have looked at he dictionary definitions that in no way begin to describe what the word meant to me.

I thought back to two relationships where I felt I may have fallen love - whatever that may mean. I know they were special times with special women where my heart was captured and I may have been tempted to behave irrationally at times.

Perhaps I had been enchanted. There is magic and power in the word that seemed to better describe how I had felt.

There is something in the word too that has a feeling of possession and being possessed. I wondered if that powerful aspect might make it even more applicable to descriptions of relationships that had domination and submission at its heart.

Have you ever been enchanted?

- Or perhaps you are skilled at enchanting others . . .

I can definitely say that I am enchanted with Master. I think one kind of has to be at least somewhat enchanted in order to be inspired to call someone Master, even just playfully. When I first saw Master, it was enchantment at first sight. Hee!:)

"enchantment at first sight"

I think you've just taken my musings to a new level t1klish!

I am sure by now he is also entranced by you. Enchantment can work both ways.

I hope he's at least a little enchanted with me, but it could be that he just saw my eyes light up with enchantment for him a year ago, and he thought to himself, "There is a woman to serve my sexual needs!"

But it's been quite a while now, and he still wants me to be the one to do it, so whether he is enchanted with me or is just happy with my performance, I still have the job!:)

Enchanted yes, many moons ago when I visited the state of Georgia and met someone!

But alas like all relationships it was over before it began! But I can remember his first name , how drop dead gorgeous he was, and how he made me feel ectera!!!

Pygar said...

If you still have the job t1cklish I am sure t1klish he is a little enchanted with you - especially if he saw your eyes light up so enchantingly!

Your story Christina will I am sure bring back memories to many of us of such special times. Enchantment indeed.

How sweetly sad such memories can be ...

I am sure he will be enchanted by your scones nancy. They say the fastest way to a man's heart is via his tummy!

Yes blossom - being able to treasure beautiful memories can be so special.

This thread has reminded me of one of my favourite songs - I put a Spell on You by Nina Simone.

Listen here.

I've recently posted a very different version of "I Put a Spell on You" here. The changes in the lyrics imply much more D/s.

Jz said...

Well...
I can't say I've ever been enchanted and I'm pretty certain I've never done any enchanting, either. (I'm more an "intriguing" kind of gal.)

There's just some element to the meaning that removes "enchanting" from my sphere. It's too... what? Ephermal? Transitory? Fantastical? Not sure.
I can't pin down what the disqualifying element is, I just know it's not the right word for me.

It IS a lovely one, tho'...

Pygar said...

I think Jz that enchantment is all to do with **sparkles**

:)

"Intriguing" though ... I may need to start a new post!

t1klish said...

I know for sure that I'm NOT intriguing. That implies mystery, and I'm not at all mysterious.

Amish Stories said...

Greetings from an Amish community in Pennsylvania, I'm just checking out different blogs and thought id leave a comment. Happy holidays to everyone as well. Richard from Amish Stories

Pygar said...

So intriguing implies mystery you think t1klish?

I wonder if Jz thinks she is mysterious?

Master Tone's briseis said...

Enchantment..I too looked up the word, familiar with the word as a young girl reading fairy tales. I can definitely say i am very much enchanted with my Master. I think being a slave and serving completely as His personal object i am spell bound about Him. He holds the wand and waves it to have me surrender fully. Every slave should be fully enchanted with their owner. Its the strongest spell imaginable to have a girl consent to handing over her body, mind, soul, and heart completely to her Dom and say here i am, mold me, use me or not, for your satisfaction and gratification.

Pygar said...

I am pleased briseis that you are so enchanted by your owner.

But you mention fairy stories. Perhaps my own enchantments were within such fairy stories and the possibilities I had hoped for will forever remain fantasies ...
