Cloud 9

Paint your face like a Monet

Your cheeks blushing like pink roses

Whip up your hair like a chocolate souffle

Pinned to your head like a ballerina

Step into your heels like a limousine

With poise like an A-list celebrity

Let’s go dancing like a couple in love

I’ll treat you like the woman you deserve

Slip out of that dress like a new beginning

And we’ll go to sleep like we’re stuck in a dream.

You Make Me Feel

There’s nothing in our world

But you and I

And feelings

Of love

That we have for each other

Used as currency

Of happiness

For the way you claim

I make you feel with a smile

Of togetherness

Because nothing here matters

Except us

But that’s because this is your fantasy

You can’t see past

Your insecurities holding you back-

A home made jail cell

Your negativity

Repelling me from your needs and desires

Criticizing me for the person I’ve become

When you remain unchanged

But most of all

Secluding me

And creating a rift

The biggest feeling of which

Is one of

Not belonging.

Untimed

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000040_00004]

Charlie always thought there wasn’t anything particularly special about him because he just wasn’t one of those “memorable” people. But he didn’t realize that the reason nobody except his aunt and father knew who he was stemmed from the fact that he was a time traveler. Through trial and error, Charlie learns the ways of time travel and drastically changes the past leading to a very unexpected future; where clockwork men referred to as Tick Tocks seem to be in charge. How will Charlie and his new friend Yvaine undo events from a couple hundred years in the past to preserve the future that we know today? What would happen if Ben Franklin was never the successful inventor that we know him as? What if the French Revolution didn’t have the same outcome that we think? Find out in this thrilling novel expertly written by Andy Gavin.

Andy Gavin successfully establishes the eras in which Untimed takes place through successful accents and imagery that makes the past come alive right before your eyes. Something that I personally enjoyed was how the author weaved in references from movies and pop culture that we know today even when the main character was stuck in the past. Time travel is always a touchy subject to delve into, but Andy Gavin has explanations for everything in a way that made me wonder how time travel isn’t being used today if it’s so simple! The author expertly crafted an adventurous story teeming with debauchery, intense fight scenes, and even love -all throughout different eras of time!ย Untimed truly is a science fiction story fit for any reader looking for an adventure. This one’s a 9/10 ย in my book!

“I guess life is more about who you’re with than where – or when – you are.”

Stepford Smile

Perfect pearly periodontals

Plastered on a fresh-faced full frontal

With ruby red luscious lips

And a gallant gaze that never slips.

 

Powdered cherub-chiseled cheeks

And long slender legs that go on for weeks

Hold together this petite plastered shell

And a bosom that creates thoughts from Hell.

 

She’s a molding of God’s greatest creation

The epitome of human perfection-

But you must be careful, do not break her!

For she’s hollow within, she has no center.

The Unexpected

It is cold

Dreary damp and dark

Nothing to keep me company

But the absence of

Your smiles as a tickle touches your sides

Brought from unexpected fingers

Your eyes as they stare deeply into mine

Telling each other secrets of their own

Your hand grasping mine

A lifeline holding me next to you

Grounded in our world

Your laugh as it sings melodies into the air

A tune I would often long to hear

You. Only a memory

That I can’t hold on to

Beyond this journey

From life to… The unexpected.

 

You’re alive while I’m here.

 

You are lost to me

But I”ll be here

Waiting for you to join me.

 

Greet you with

All the joys we once shared.

 

You will find me

And we will

Never be lost again.

 

Ode to Paper

Lines provided to me

On sheet white skin

To inscribe words upon.

 

Let me dispose my

Thoughts at my will.

Let me scribble, scratch

Or possible erase them;

But you may keep

The ones you like.

 

I hope my pen

Is as kind to

You as you are

To my general well-being.

 

You deserve a life

Of decent words passionately

Filling your body with

Their grace. But do

Not let them possess

You or overcome you.

 

For your beauty and

Potential are of one

That deserves to be

Shared with the world.

Indecisive Tango

In front of me

You stand

In black and white

A 50’s dream

With suit-clad arms by your side

Raising up

As if lifted by clouds

To rest on my generous hip

And outstretched hand

As the music begins.

 

Behind me

Stands my past

With magnified eyes

Waiting for me to get lost

In the distraction of music

And misstep

Landing a sharp-as-a-knife-heel

In the heart of your foot

So they can shout

I KNEW SHE WOULD HURT YOU!

 

But what’s behind you?

I can’t see

For the room is too dark

From the extinguishing sneers of my past

Reducing the fiery passion

Creating tension between your body

And my own.

 

But I want to know so badly

Regardless of how hard you try

To stand in my way

I’ll step to the right

And see your face

I’ll step to the left

And you’re there with me.

 

Hold me close until the song ends

Until then,

We’ll keep dancing

In time and rhythm

Side to side.

Let’s Run Away

I’ve never seen you before,

I don’t know you-

And yet

If you told me

You see me

Like the silver lining

On your ever present

Gloomy cloud

You hear me

Like the wind

Whispering the secrets

Of life into your ear

You feel me

Like your heartbeat

As your blood rushes

Through your veins

You know me

Like the abandoned home

You lived in through your adolescence

With the fondest memories

I’d drop

e v e r y t h i n g

Leave it all (behind)

At the chance

Of running away with you

For the rest

Of

Our

Lives.

May Day Announcements!

  • Yesterday was the last day for NaPoWriMo. It was so much fun! I successfully completed 30 poems in 30 days and completed all of the prompts (even though not all of them were completed on the exact day). What’s that you say? There was no poem for day 29? *Gasp* Okay, I decided to keep that one for myself. I wrote a poem that I’d like to give to someone special, and I know they frequent my blog to see what I’m up to, so I figured I’d just keep it private for right now. Maybe I’ll post it after I give it to aforementioned special person ๐Ÿ˜‰ ! My personal goal was to do the consecutive 30 days with a poem for each day, but I made it 19 days in a row! Did you participate in NaPoWriMo? How did you enjoy it? Send me a link to your favorite poem that you did and I’ll be sure to check it out if I haven’t already ๐Ÿ™‚
  • I created a blog related email address! I’ve been thinking about doing this for a long time and I finally decided to create one. Please feel free to send me comments, suggestions, any stories or poems of yours that you might like opinions on, or even if you just want to chat! I’ll take requests for poetry when possible, or we could even do a collaboration together if that’s something that you’d be interested in doing. Feel free to send me anything you’d like to share. I find it difficult to communicate with you wonderful people through wordpress because my computer takes forever to load my comments, so I don’t respond to nearly as many people as I’d like to. You can reach me at tipprtamara@outlook.com (I’ll put my email address in the sidebar as well ๐Ÿ˜‰ ).
  • Lastly, I’ve mentioned before how much you guys mean to me, but I really would like to say it again! You guys inspire me with your stories and it touches my heart when you leave comments about your personal life and how certain words or phrases brought you back to a different time in your life. I love hearing these types of things and you guys really keep me inspired to keep writing and follow my dreams! You are all very wonderful people and I hope I’ve touched your lives as much as you have touched mine!

Sorry for the wall of text, I tried highlighting the main parts of it. Thank you for your continued support. I look forward to hearing from you!
