Why Goodbye Booksiesilk  ???

Some of you were wondering why earlier I decided to put down my pen and leave Booksiesilk.

Well there are many reasons but mainly because of a certain special lady whom I thought my presence in here might make her unhappy.…..But I’ll leave that for another time.

Anyway there is also another reason which I believe many of you might be as adamant about as I am.

I have told some of you about this before but I am going to say it again even if it is going to get me in trouble. As much as I like writing erotica however for me this genre has always been more than just about sex. I always believed that erotica is the Art of love, the Art of romance, the Art of passion, the Art of adventure rather than just a bang bang sex show. I am starting to feel that BS is becoming more of a porn site rather than a classy erotica destination. Maybe I am wrong. Maybe I am imagining things or it is just an accuse for why I wanted to get out of here. 

Anyway, what I prefer to read around here are those wonderful works that have stories to tell, substance to divulge, worlds to explore, characters to entertain and of course passion to arouse. After all it is erotica and I have not forgotten that.

So please please boys and girls lets make this site into what I wish it to be. Let us make it one of the classiest erotic destination around. A place where we can all come to read, write, dream, get aroused, but most of all feel those stories and poems in our hearts. 

Ok back to me now. 

After my Goodbye poem I was overwhelmed by the huge response of all my friends that urged me to reconsider my decision. They pleaded, they begged, some even slapped me around angrily accusing me of abandoning them and leaving like that. One special lady even drew me a map of what I could say to retract my way back in. She laid out three alternatives I could use:

1- "It was a bad day and I was going to leave but a good friend talked me out of it." Well this is true. It was a bad day and I really decided to leave.

2- "Guys it was just a poem...just how I was feeling at the time." Again this was true and everyone knows what I felt.

3.   "Delete it." Well this is going to be difficult. What has been done is done. It is in the public domain now so deletion is not an option.

However from all that has happened and from all the responses I got I learned one thing which really overwhelmed me to the bones. I learned that what I was leaving behind was not Booksiesilk, or the stories, or the writing, or the poems.... It was all the people that I got to know those many years on this site. They have not only been my friends they have been my sisters, brothers, lovers, teachers, diaries, mirrors, buddies, mates, companions, confessors, guides, ...... but most of all my best friends.

Now I am at a cross roads. My heart could not even begin to comprehend how I could ever have dreamt of leaving all my friends behind yet I don't want to read and write something which does not feel right or good to me.

However it took the words from one of my best friends to make me wake up to reality when she said, ”the world is harsh enough and it takes strength to still be able to smile.” But it took a final shout from the second to make me change my mind, "why don't you stay and do something about it,” in addition to her kick in the ass of course. So that is what I have decided to do. However I am hoping we would all work together to make the world a better place by putting a smile on people's faces and be strong enough to do something about it.
