The Confinements of Lush

We find ourselves here for many reasons;
we are writers, readers,
companions and confidants.

Although separated,
by distance, time and reality,
our experiences often overlap, leaving us to ponder....

What is real?

Creating a bio to mark our arrival;
describing ourselves in mere paragraphs,
likes, dislikes, kinks and twists, just to be noticed.

Typing in black boxes with limited space;
anxiously awaiting a response,
wondering what's happening beyond the other side of the screen.

Our confidence boosts from a simple compliment;
we begin to blossom, feel desired, wanted, appreciated, by those who've sought us out.

We set rules and boundaries;
all to be broken at one time or another.
We often break away from the ‘good girl mold’
as our own ‘rules’ crumble around us.

Confines often breaking way;
breaking way to the very things we once set limits on,
the very things we never expected we would do.

We search for the ones who have similar stories to ours;
search for those looking to find a connection,
erotic or intimate, real or fake.

We search for what we are missing;
taking chances, hoping they'll pay off,
but not wanting to lose sight of who we are along the way.

We give ourselves willingly;
whether for pleasure or love,
hoping our fantasies will be fulfilled.

We watch as others become territorial;
at times even catching ourselves,
desiring what does not belong to us,
yet we feel free to join the ever-growing virtual world for our own pleasure.

One's game may break one's heart,
one's heart may be broken by one who unwittingly knew,
or by one who was playing the game all along.

We can recreate ourselves,
just be ourselves, or
even destroy ourselves
in the confines of this virtual world called Lush.

We combine pleasure and pain;
in more ways than one.

We play Russian roulette;
taking risks when it comes to lust and love.

The elusive thing that binds two together,
the common link,
what we ache for but don't have,
what we miss but hope to regain.

We often react instead of act,
our actions not always conventional. So what's acceptable and what's not?
What's right and what's wrong?

We make choices and sacrifices,
some that will overlap and affect our daily lives
outside of the invisible walls of Lush.

We are among a competitive group of individuals,
some are real, others are not
creating themselves under false pretenses,
wanting to recreate what they've lost.

We log on everyday,
see the same list of friends, old and new,
some we barely connect with,
others we feel closer to than those in our everyday lives.

We thrive on the excitement,
the anticipation of what may come,
the adrenaline rush that flows through our veins like a water fall.

It's like being on the craziest ride at the amusement park,
the rush it delivers
the high it brings,
taking you to the very edge, the brink of ecstasy.

We laugh, we cry
we get turned on and turned off
we play and get played
we leave, we come back.

It's a perpetual cycle,
a place in which we can be free.
this is our playground, here is where we play.

We are the Confinements of Lush.

It seems that you have skillfully and beautifully covered all the bases. beautifully written. One caution might be not to allow the virtual to damage anything one has in reality. Remember the dog carrying his bone across a bridge and saw his reflection in the water. He went to take the other bone and lost what he had. That having been said this is truly a 5

Damn - never give a score using a tablet. I meant to give a 5, but the clumsiness of my fingers on this tiny screen hit the 4 and it was gone before I could stop it. I apologise profusely and if you can delete my score please do.

This was a brilliant poem, and encapsulated exactly why we are all here - to experience that adrenaline rush of desire, and to explore the dark recesses of our own sexuality in acts of lust that would be condemned as depraved by polite society. We are here with others of our kind - slaves to the quest for continual sexual ecstasy. Thank you for your wonderful poem which will become a favourite of mine.

A brilliant articulation of what it is to wade into the waters of chat-it's ups and downs, the excitement and the friendships that are real and those that aren't...I thoroughly enjoyed this.

What an impressive following... but it's obvious why! You say it well for all invested with a flow unimpeded, an organic truth. I come for the inspiration and growth, the entertainment. Any drama can be left at the door, there is enough of that in the "real world"! Relax and enjoy the ride... the "getting there". Peace.

I rarely read poems here but am so glad I read this. As everyone else had said you have described Lush to a T. I have been active for a month and am addicted. It is sometimes frustrating sorting through the fakers but in the end is well worth it. What an appropriate photo you composed to go along with the poem!

Sums up life on planet Lush perfectly... we leave, we come back; typing in little black boxes, anxiously waiting... how very true!

You've captured the essence of this mystical world. Clearly you're writing from experience as well as fantasy. Well done Shyvixen!

SV, I love this and all of your other work on Lush that I've read. This poetic work is insightful and lovely, but not nearly as lovely as you are in the photos in your Image Gallery.

Aaaah, Lush. It's many things to us all.

It certainly is a playground!

5, Shy, for a very poignant and thought-provoking piece

I had another thought about your poem Vix, what you wrote is the "Yellow Brick Road" through Lush. There's no wizard at the end but the place is one helluva journey nontheless.

I, too, loved your poem, and its description of your experience here in Lush. I am reasonably new in the Lush family and much of your description lies before me. I look forward to it, or something like it. Thanks for the map.

"We are the confinements of Lush" is going to resonate with me for a long time. You nailed it. This is Lush. Well done, Shy!

Well done.

You said it all so eloquently... it's exactly how I see Lush... and how much pleasure it has already brought me... both as a reader & as a writer.
