Ocean Waves, Part 1

I yearn to be in your presence,

Feel the warmth you provide

Just from being near.

 

Cleanse my soul

While I drink in your essence

Upon my return

And soak you in.

 

I promise to visit soon

And we’ll converse

In our own language-

A code

Made up

Of whispers and secrets-

I’ll tell you of all my travels

And listen to your tales

Of everything you’ve witnessed

From around the world.

 

I can’t wait to see you again…

I’ll catch a glimpse of you in the distance

And you’ll wave,

Just like you always do,

Welcoming me home.

The Broken Doll

She sits on the wooden shelf

An unwelcome grin etched on to her face

As the people around her

Mill around the house

Go about their day

And pay her no attention.

She waits

Patiently with her stiff limbs

Hoping all day

Today’s the day

When they come home

They’ll pick me up off of the shelf

And play with me.

The hour arrives,

The family trudges in

One

By

One

And they begin to mill around the house

And go about the rest of their day

Without a glance at the shelf

Where the doll sits by herself

Waiting for love.

Ruby

I’ll write you as I please,

A character in my story

Is all you’ll ever be

 

I’ll make you dance

I’ll make you sing

I’ll make you fall in love with me

 

When I feel I’m in over my head

I’ll cut your strings, puppet,

And set you free.

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! Untimed truly is a science fiction story fit for any reader looking for an adventure. This one’s a 9/10  in my book!

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