These are my words 
Flowing from the broken
Pieces of my soul, 
Dark and unyielding 
To the light. 
Fighting against 
Letting the light shine through. 
Tears streaming down 
My face as I fight 
Against the darkness, 
Please let a little light in 
My darkness scares me, 
My broken pieces, my shattered soul.

Book description…

Those who love. Those who have loved. Those who will love and for all who dare to dream of love. The poems in this book were born on nights when the eyes of my beloved were like songs, and the perfume of our love pursued the midnight air. When the rising sun embraced the moon and our love did not disappear, we discovered that our kisses had become stories and stars in the Land of Nod. Nod is where music retires after it is played, and where night calls a moment of its passing a day. Here, dreams recline on chaises waiting to whisper their tales into the hearts of readers and nightingales.

I want the kind of story that’ll make a person cry, ball up into the fetal position, stomach in knots and ask for forgiveness. I want to be a storyteller. I want to tell stories.
