That simple word melts my heart every time. Long before we married or had children, months before “I love you” was uttered, Sir would squeeze me and say ‘Mine’. I was 19 and I was His. There was nothing that made me happier. I would hear that word and know that He meant it and that I always wanted to be His.
Fast forward to now. I read a lot of D/s or BDSM themed books and in nearly all if them ‘mine’ is said between Dom & sub. Every single time I read it, I think that is our thing, He has said that to me for years! Even all these years later, He will wrap his strong arms around me and say ‘Mine’ and I instantly feel safe and loved and, well, home. And now that we are incorporating D/s into our lives? ‘Mine’ has taken on even more meaning. All parts of me are truly His – mind, body and soul – I am letting go of control and trusting that He will not steer me wrong.
