Poetry: Miracles

poetryMiracles

You’re long dead
Buried in the earth

I was too consumed
In my mire of misery
To realize

You’ve been here
You never left

It had been me

You’ve been here

The scattered whispers in a crowded room
The fleeting feeling of summer
The sound of raindrops falling

The hushed whisper in the wind
The laughter ringing in my ears

You’ve been everywhere
In places I refused to look

The sweet voice
Of a boy long since dead
Carries in the wind
Of a world he never existed in

Miracles occurred
When my back was crouched in darkness
Blinded by sadness

You’re still here

My miracle

Poetry: Salvation

poetrySalvation

There is a certain silence
A form of absolute solitude

We crave
We desire

The quiet
Before the storm of anxiety
Runs rampant

The beats of each second
Allowing us to breathe
To render in peace

A quiet
That isn’t lonely
Nor sad

A peace
For the mind
To work things out

In the depths of solitude

We wish
We crave
We may even find

Our salvation

Poetry: Goodbye

poetryGoodbye

I always knew the moment
Would come

When the facade
Of happiness
Would no longer be enough

That I could
No longer turn a blind eye

I realize
I made a choice
One I’ve always known
I would make

I’d have to let you go

Now
I finally am

In time
Logic will bring comfort

For now
I carry
The ache of loss
The sting of finality

The heavy weight
Of knowing
Something once good is gone

The only words left to say

Goodbye

Poetry: Ghost

poetryGhost

I’m the lucky one
Even though the luck may be hard to see

Perpetually hit with sideways glances
Natural curiosity
Wonder

Why I had been spared and he hadn’t

Was I growing to be someone special?
Was I worth the life?

There’s a burden to being left behind
A lifeless body forever hitches a ride

You’re a ghost I would give my whole life for

Poetry: Art

poetryArt

Memories of time
Long passed
Spark emotion
Some unwelcome
Some cherished and rejoiced

These are the emotions that give us literature
Art
Music

The fuel
To channel into art that will
Change the world

These memories
Give us the moments that matter
Give us our humanity

Book Review: The Book of Someday by Dianne Dixon

The Book of Someday by Dianne Dixon

17396179

1600108_10152164384975908_207743490_nMysteriously connected and soon to be forever changed, three women begin a story that will haunt you long after they are gone.

Ever since she was a little girl in California, Livvi Gray has been tormented by a nightmare of an eerily beautiful stranger in a shimmering silver dress. Shortly before Livvi’s thirtieth birthday she will come face to face with this stranger, an encounter that will not only alter Livvi’s future, but also change much of what she thinks she knows about the past.

1600167_10152164384800908_58508561_n

The Book of Someday tells Livvi’s story in parallel with that of a brilliant Boston photographer named Micah and a young Long Island wife and mother named AnnaLee. Like Livvi, these two women are swiftly moving toward events that will prove to be the ultimate turning points in their lives, the places where devastating secrets will be exposed–secrets about the unexpected ways in which we choose to protect, and betray, the people we love..

This is a very original novel concept developed by author Dixon. The characters were very real, the story was so unbelievable that in this chaotic world I am sure some readers identify and can relate.

There is never a moment of boredom, this dual narrated story follows the lives of three females, that teach us and show us many things. This book is aimed more for a mature adult audience as it as very harlequin-esque scenes. This was a very inspired read, as a young lady I felt empowered by how strong and courageous these characters proved themselves to be.

 There was a wee bit of a paranormal element to it, some scenes were exceptionally eerie and dark, but I thought it would be much different that as described in the book summary. Regardless, that element of the story was wonderful.

This is a book you will read in one sitting, it captivates you from start to finish.

The ending will blow you away. You will feel a storm of emotions all at once. That’s what great writing does, right? Creates catharsis for the reader, so that in itself proves this novel is a success.

Poetry: Rise

poetryRise

My wish to you
Bound in anger and grief
Sealed with despair and broken dreams

Set aflame by the light of a canopy of stars

My wish

Find peace
Find forgiveness

Your actions cannot break me

Your sins define you
They do not serve to identify me
Nor will they ever

My pain will not change my goodness
That cannot be taken

In our despair
I release myself from you

The final act of love

My Forgiveness

Bound in Prayers sent to the heavens
Back down to the earth

For you

To release yourself from the past

Remorse
Repent
Remember

Then rise

Ready to start your revolution
