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-
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.

I did all there was to do
Yet here I stand
On unsure footing
Stopped on a road…
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.
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
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.
One person seeking solace
From the pain that befalls us
One person waiting with open arms
Minus the fear of harm
Equals one bond
Created from a friendship so strong.
I wished upon a star
For a dream that felt so far
It could never be in reach
Until the atmosphere was breached.
That shooting star, it fell
My anxiety was quelled
As the stars revealed destiny
And showed that we were meant to be.
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.
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.”
I’ll shed a tear for you
Made from love
And the fondest memories
Of holding you in my arms
And stroking your soft hair absentmindedly.
You were always there for me
To lift up my spirits
When they were down
And I have never
Had a better friend than you.
You were a free spirit
Roaming the wilderness,
but you came back to society
To spend your life with me.
I know that I will never be the same
So I will shed a tear for you
Even though you won’t be here to catch it.
It will hold
All our love
It started on paper because I wanted to hold the shape of it. I wrote it for a friend that’s having a really hard time right now because she has to say goodbye to her lifelong friend, a cat named Mr. Boggles. I understand the pain that she’s going through, and we’re very close friends- almost like sisters, so it’s been rather emotional for me as well. Please feel free to leave any words of wisdom that may help a friend heal the wounds during this difficult time. I’d love to hear your stories as well whether they’re happy memories of an old friend of yours or stories that show your empathy for the situation. Thank you, all of you, for being you!
There was a man that spoke in sonnets
A language native to my yearning ear
We shared our secrets in permanent ink
And laughed at trivial reality.
There was a man that spoke in fragments
Broken language here and there
He talked and talked as I listened
And silently loved him in my dreams.
You will not be taken away from me
Before a kiss is placed from your lips onto mine
A secret shared with nothing standing between us
Our secret language that holds more emotion
Than words could ever carry
Before your arms embrace me so tightly
Just like the day when we first met
When nothing could ever feel so right
Except for where we were at that moment
Before my eyes give away my weakness
And my fear of being alone
You will not be taken away from me
Before I get the chance to say goodbye.
