The Way You Make Me Feel
Each book that I read takes me on a journey that ultimately makes me a better writer with a broader scope. This place will have all of my personal reviews which are written in the form of poetry. Each poem expresses what I felt while reading or what I experienced, even when I became the character while reading. Yes, some books are that good.
Well, that’s me in a nutshell, always turning everything into a poem. If life is words, I want them to move my heart.
I hope you enjoy and please leave a comment below.
Night Shift by B.K. Bass
It’s dark even when it’s day
And the city never sleeps
There’s danger all around
I’m a cop but I’m beat
Who’s afraid of me
I flash a badge and get info
Lie to get to the bottom line
Anything to get answers
Why did she have to die?
Who’s secrets does she keep?
Why am I putting my life on the line?
What has she done to me?
So what, I’m a bit of a jerk
What friends do I need,
I got my partner Frank
Even though he acts like we’re enemies
I’m the brain he’s the brawn
Make no mistakes he will break your jaw
The more questions I ask
The bigger the target on my back
Suddenly I’m under fire
All of the time
I have to figure out who she was
The human side as well as the bot
For my life now
Before both of our time is up
There’s a thousand things they could’ve done
Besides leaving her here at night, in the rain
Killed her during my shift
I will make them pay
The End Of Echoes
By Dawn Hosmer
Chest cavity caved as I think of you gone
Dazed heavy in the dark
I don’t want to get up, I want to stay here on the ground
What if you’re still alive
Waiting to be found
From my womb
Stolen away from me
Gone far too soon
There’s so much you haven’t done or seen
I was supposed to help you pick a dress for your wedding
Pack your room when you moved for college
Now my brain is stuck in a fog
And I can’t seem to wake up
How a mother’s heart breaks knowing she has to bury her daughter
They say the worst thing you can do is bury your child
My knees buckle as I fathom living while you’re in the ground.
The Darkness Returns
By Micheal Nadeau
The pull was so strong, intense and surreal
Was this happening to me
My conscious couldn’t separate your world from my reality
I became them,
Walking the lands of Lythinall
Ready to stand against the great evil of Dar’Krist
Embracing every love
Feeling gratitude for the bard, Karsis
I’m better having known you
Kinder, gentler somehow
Every page sent me deeper into your world and I can’t get home now
Just the right amount of suspense,
So many creatures and I wasn’t overwhelmed
I got to know all of them
They were my friends
We walked together and conversed
I was grateful for their time
Thank you for sharing these gifts from your mind
Your family now mine
Lives sacrificed and spared
I could’ve killed you
But then you made me laugh
I was emotionally everywhere
And enjoyed the dispersing of my sanity
I need to know what is in the water
And what will Rhoe be?
Also, who is this man trying to kill everybody?
Fairy Tale Lies
By DK Marie
I was so ready to be loved by you
But you didn’t know
What to think
I’m not emotionally available
Lifetime of hiding
My parents rule my life but you
You want to show me another way
I didn’t know I was this wild, this sassy, this sexy.
You’ve awakened a desire in me
I want to see where this goes
But for the time being, no one else needs to know
You seem to be okay for a while
From experience I know suppression can make one sick
Can I distract you with a kiss, suck and lick
Oh me Oh my
I wasn’t ready for this ride
I didn’t get to tell you
You’re the love of my life
Bits And Pieces
By Dawn Hosmer
The colors, the blinding lights
Through the blindest eyes I see you
Gift or a curse still a burden
All grown up still don’t know what to do
Daddy hates me he’s embarrassed
Maybe even afraid
Wouldn’t be so bad if you would just hold me momma, hold me.
My brother, always there when I want you and even when I don’t
In and out of hospitals, you were there for me the most
I can’t count how many times you saved me
Or how it feels to be loved by you
The way you make me have hope in myself
When I’m desperately trying to give up on life and everyone else.
I’ve met someone
But he might be trying to kill me
Maybe it’s all in my mind
Cause every time he touches me I get warm feelings
And I love the lights that flash
He’s warm and soft
I’ll happily do anything he says
Is it him or another that wants me dead?
By Ryen Lesli
My soul burns
I need to know
Who, how, when, now
I can’t sleep,
The kids are crying they need me,
I pause robotically aiding their calls.
Has a spell been placed over me?
Cat is amusing,
But Wolf owns my heart,
How can River choose another
And break the bond.
The love in the ebb is ever evolving, unknown
Yet there’s a dark side I can almost see coming
Her fate is partly revealed
But still I know there’s more
The intricate details of every relationship is what I love
Ryen, what have you done to me?
Searching through the pages like a knight on a quest
I need Fate,
I need to know what happens next to my princess?
It’s like an addiction,
But what’s the cure for this?
Perhaps a few pages from the new book
To give me a fix.
