A SWEET MEMORY

A step into the unknown

My father used to tell me to take

a long walk on a short pier.

I thought he was trying to get rid of me.

I would walk away.

Hurt.

We weren’t close.

We never talked.

But maybe he was trying to share something with me.

His love of the sea.

He had been a Marine in World War II.

He could have been sharing with me in his awkward way.

His love of boats and the deep, blue sea.

Now when I look out at the ocean,

I think of him.

THERE

I want to be there.

Not here by my computer.

But there on the beach.

Walking on the sand.

Feeling the cold water

hit my toes.

The pounding surf

against my body.

Spray of salt water

on my face.

Soothing.

Refreshing.

Like a cocoon,

enveloping me,

comforting me.

I close my eyes

and feel a laugh

bubbling inside of me,

ready to take flight.

A laugh of delight

and freedom.

Come join me.

A fantasy can

be easily shared.

A BALANCING ACT

Torn between two lives.

What you want.

And what others want of you.

A tough balancing act.

Full of uncertainty.

How to keep balance?

How to walk the fine line?

Do you cut yourself into half

like in the tale of Solomon?

Can you please everyone?

No. You can’t.

You must please yourself first.

Then you can solve the rest of

the world’s problems.

Balance carefully.

And balance wisely.

EMPTY INSIDE?

contortionistic-nyctophiliac:

By Rhaevyn Hart

Do you feel empty inside?

Nothing to offer the world.

No words of wisdom to share.

No pretty pictures to paint.

No music to play.

This isn’t true.

Everyone has something to offer.

Whether it’s good food, fun and

laughter, or just love, we all have

something to give the world.

Let no one make you feel unimportant.

We all have important roles to play in life.

What is yours?

MY FIVE STAR REVIEW ON AMAZON:

 

5.0 out of 5 stars “The Big Bad Wolf is already waiting for us…”, June 25, 2014
This review is from: The Dead Game (Kindle Edition)
I cannot say how glad I am that I got the opportunity to read this book. This story puts me in mind of the horror classics – it has a little bit of everything: gore, eeriness, a nice array of shrinking violet heroines and a few tough broads, a bit of romance and plenty of twists (why, Natalia, why?)!
One of the things that I absolutely loved about this book was that it jumped into action right from the first page, and didn’t let up right until the end.
Another thing that I loved is this author’s style – the scenes were beautifully descriptive, stylish, and at times, quite gruesome (I’ll have nightmares about the fireplace for some time). They were also crafted in such a way that it was easy to envision every terror, almost as if it were a film.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this book to any fan of good, classic horror – whether you’re into vampires, demons, or just like some gruesome nighttime reading.
