Rewind

I thought of it candidly
I would flip through
my own experiences,
written in my own
medication-muddled script,
and my mind developed
snapshots
and I saw myself
as someone else
and I couldn't wait
to fade to black
or I might not be
the same when
I came back

Through a round window
I saw looks of pity
on muted faces
and I was far away
from everything
in an enclosed
solitary confinement--

   (I put myself there
   to hear the quiet,
   and I had a sky-
   light's view of
   a lightning storm)

--room. That window
was not circular. It was
no larger than a mail-
slot but I can still see
the shaking hands
behind it.

I rewind it.
This movie, this can't be
me. I became obsessed with
going back to the beginning
again and again. And, dammit,
I still couldn't see that far ahead.

Not when I couldn't distinguish
between sleep, awake,
alive, or dead.
Pause please. Stop.
I've seen all I can
take. Fade to black.
Fade to blue. Fade to red.

 Nice to Meet You

Our hands brush as we walk by each other
My heart begins to flutter
For this stranger I don’t know why
I just feel the urge to cry
Have I met you somewhere before?
Maybe you opened my door
You turn back to gaze at me puzzled
Your expression befuddled
The smile you give is confused but curious
I am starting to think that maybe I am delirious
I ask your name
And to my surprise it’s the same
As someone I used to know
We sit down to chat
And imagine that
We like most of the same things
My ears start to ring
Again I ask you if you’re sure
That we have never met before
And you say to me
In another lifetime maybe?
This person I used to know
I loved him so
We could talk about anything
We did everything
We shared so much
Our hopes
Our dreams
Our trust
You don’t look like him
But you remind me so much of him
In a strange way
Maybe you are a reincarnation
Or maybe just my imagination
Am I crazy?
Or just maybe
You are my lost love
Sent to me from above
There is just this indescribable connection
This heart pounding affection
This feeling I feel is true
For some strange reason I think I love you
Nice to meet you

The Long Night of Pleasure by Mr. Glenn

51S651ToXlL



Blurb: There are whole worlds that exist, and infinities that are placed inside the seconds we take for granted. And for those that have found the one that they cannot live without, those moments are filled with the truths of their longing and the desperation of their desires. The Long Night of Pleasure is the latest book by romance writer Paul Glenn that perfectly blends poetry and prose with romance and erotica.  

Review: Sensual poetry packed with great talent! I have read other works by Mr. Glenn and I have enjoyed them all. This book of poetry shows a true romantic and sensual side of his work. His taste for romance, love and sex are present in each poem with unbelievable imagery and rhythm. His work is one that I would recommend anyone looking for honest, true romantic and erotic poetry to read, Within this book of poetry, Mr. Glenn tossed a hot, steamy erotic short story in the middle of the book, this to me really helped pick up the pace of the book in which the reader can truly enjoy.

The cover of Mr. Glenn's book is just beautiful. His cover model, CK Stephanie has that aurora to her eyes that draws the reader to his work. CK Stephanie is just beautiful and welcomes you to the world of Mr. Glenn's poetry. The color scheme is just gorgeous around her face with a mystery touch behind it. 

Toxic Desire by Ellie Douglas

51D1DFe1BAL



Blurb: Imagine waking up from a blackout, your memory betraying you as to where you have been or what you have done. This is what happens to beautiful and sexy, 24 year old, Annabelle Worthington. Growing up, Annabelle’s life was anything but normal. Living with loveless parents, she was subjected to unimaginable abuse and torture at the hands of those who should have protected her. Her saving grace was her relationship with Ivy and Eva. As an adult, she met Brett Campbell and finally her world became filled with the happiness, stability and love that she had never known. Then something unthinkable happens that destroys her idyllic life and fills her with rage. Annabelle’s blackouts increase and memories of her abusive childhood threatens to imprison her. When Ivy and Eva comes back into her life, Annabelle elicits their help to rid the world of all cheating bastards. Is there anything that can stop them before they wreak havoc on California? Which of them really poses the most danger to those who least expect it? How many lives will be lost because of sexual desires and memories from the past?  

Review: This book was packed full of excitement and steamy scenes and murderous plots. Throughout the story is every type of chaotic events a reader would want, The pace of the story is in full force. Ellie's writing is so engrossed with talent on creating each chapter of charters that just continued to build till the end. Ellie's imagination had to be captured onto paper for all of us to enjoy her characters of Toxic Desire, the overall feeling of the book is a turbulent ride of flashbacks with the urge to get even. The cover of Ellie's book is what drew me to choose this book to read. Her color scheme was eye catching and the image of the city with a lurking view of a girl intrigued my thoughts of wanting to read her book. The title definitely fits the book with toxic desire of wanting to get even and rage of hate. I give big kudos to Ellie for her writing is so easily paced and so chair griping. I would highly recommend anyone who is looking for a hot steamy murderous read to grab her book and enjoy over a weekend read!

Echoic Poet: Erato Poetry

Please Welcome Echoic Poet Erato Poetry



Poet's Bio:

Erato Poetry is the vehicle for expressive word art, collage and music! The more obscure, angular, lyrical and emotive the better.


The petal drops onto my nose as the cigarette enters its palliative stages
The fire pot has a plank suspending an empty packet of hope and forlorn memories
A spider drops from a brick wall, suspended above a trajectory of carbon ponders
Its wings spanning like a disturbed child’s hands in sleep
No-one knew him better than I did and I didn’t even know his name
The woman across the road plays games with an automatic door as the bus boy riddles with ideology
The fire is out in most of us he sang, while no one listened
The hair curled cigarette smoke flumes into an open car window
Its rear vision mirror turned forward, a change of pace and tact
She just looked and smiled and inhaled my smoke and said
We are the blessed young lad and flung me an antihistamine
The petals were not even petals but ash from a burning floor
I touched the tumour on my forehead, a soft shake of the head, presuming the woman was right
The woman across the road is embracing the bus boy in a passionate meeting of the minds
Tears pool at the base of my feet, petals sinking in the puddles
I’m always the butt of the joke

Author Bio:

I’m Ellie Douglas, and like you, I love horror, everything about horror, the goriest and most gruesome of horrors is the ultimate. I can’t get enough. So much so that I write horror. That need to be graphic, and explicit with my horror scenes makes me stand out. I give what I want to read to others, so now they can enjoy a true horror story.

I’m not all about just being graphic, I also build characters that the readers will love and or hate, so they can feel pulled right inside of the story that they are reading. It gives me so much enjoyment when I hear remarks like, ‘You made me want to puke,’ ‘I have nightmares every damned night –thanks,’ and ‘Quentin Tarantino and Steven King made a baby, YOU!’ when I hear comments like that, I know then I’ve succeeded, that also pushes me into writing more and becoming even better.

I’m fun loving, generous and very mysterious. I enjoy spending time with my family, and have four children to keep the horror writing alive. I enjoy helping others and volunteer my services to help Autistic children, I love cosplay and the chance to dress up as a monster, zombie or some other gritty character is fun, oh so much fun.

I love summer, and well…I hate winter. I live in New Zealand and feel often too far away from all the cool stuff going on in the world. I love helping people all the time. I’ve got my hands dipped in a few things, I write books, but I also make professional book covers for other authors, I also create adult coloring books and I have a gambling app that I designed on the apple store :) I’ve always got a project going, be it writing or creating, that is who I am and I love it :)

My ultimate aim is to give back, paying it forward, to constantly better myself and give the audience amazing stories. Let me scare you…
