Love Forever After Poem – Candle Light

Candle Light…

 

With the sun gone and the nights dawn,

I fear the darkness.

Grasping for hope, grasping for light where there is none,

I wander in the darkness.

A hole in my core, a leak in my essence,

I bath in the darkness.

Waiting for that moment to come,

Waiting for the pained peace to settle with the dust,

No longer waiting for that sweet song,

I cherish the darkness!

I am one with the darkness,

I am reborn in the darkness!

But then…. like a train from a far,

A gentle light…. a threatening light….

Like a breath of new life….

Comes the candle light.

REVIEW: Born Wicked

Born Wicked (Cahill Witch Chronicles #1)
by Jessica Spotswood

G.P. Putnam’s Sons, 2012 
[Goodreads | Amazon

Everybody knows Cate Cahill and her sisters are eccentric. Too pretty, too reclusive, and far too educated for their own good. But the truth is even worse: they’re witches. And if their secret is discovered by the priests of the Brotherhood, it would mean an asylum, a prison ship—or an early grave.

Before her mother died, Cate promised to protect her sisters. But with only six months left to choose between marriage and the Sisterhood, she might not be able to keep her word… especially after she finds her mother’s diary, uncovering a secret that could spell her family’s destruction.

Morgen: Hello, Caron. Please tell us something about yourself, where you’re based, and how you came to be a writer.

Welcome to the three hundred and seventy-first of my blog interviews with novelists, poets, short story authors, biographers, agents, publishers and more. Today’s is with speculative fiction author, poet and script writer Danika Dinsmore. A list of interviewees (blogged and scheduled) can be found here. If you like what you read, please do go and investigate further.

Morgen: Hello, Danika. Please tell us something about your writing.

Danika: As far as prose goes, I write almost exclusively speculative fiction. As a matter of fact, the only creative prose works of mine that are non-speculative from the past five years are a few odd flash fiction pieces I’ve written. And even those lean towards the dreamy or surreal.

Oddly enough, I’ve written 9 screenplays and only one of them is fantasy and none are science fiction. All the others are real-world based. The one fantasy I wrote became…

mythoughts

Breaking  Beautiful was the first book dealing with abusive relationships that I’ve read. The subject matter always made me leery, because it could so easily be done incorrectly. But I liked the fact that this book involved…

First and foremost, I’d like to state my opinion regarding the latest issues about IMM, and I decided not to participate anymore because I want to stay out of it.  I don’t have anything against the meme or the blogger or the host itself since I don’t know her/them personally. Actually, I don’t have any idea what the issue is all about. So I’ll just post a personal haul with my any random subject, and in the meantime, I entitled my book hauls for the week as BOOK HAUL. haha. It’s too obvious! Am I corny or what?haha.

Anyway, here’s my latest book hauls for the past two weeks. I didn’t take a picture of them, cause I’m so lazy. Yeah right! I’m such a lazy blogger. Or can I say I was busy? Nah, I don’t like to lie. I’m not busy, I’m just lazy, that sometimes I just want to…
