Passion Froze

Oh! What a crush I had

Following so close behind

Hoping and wishing he’d look back

Did he notice did he see me

Muscle bound and luscious lips on fire

If I could taste it would quench my desire

As it so happened I’d get that chance

School project alone or was it happenstance

He felt my lust for him without saying a word

Reached over pulled me in close I was weak as a bird

Taking full advantage of the minute or two alone

I felt his biceps and smelled his cologne

Mouth open tongue out desire and passion

Filled the room until the door came crash-in

Back to work you guys whew that was close

Still remembering years later passion froze

What Does Reading Do For Me?

photogrid_1453943279105_1_1.jpgI know I’ve got a good read when the novel grabs me by the hand on the first page. It pulls me line by line refusing to let me go that’s when I know I’m off on an amazing adventure.

I run through the sentences like playing the game Hide and Go Seek anxiously awaiting to feel what’s about to happen next.

As the characters unfold I talk to them as if they were my mother, my sister, or my best friend.  Scolding, crying, comforting, and wrapping my arms around

their pain.  My heart races to the rhythm of each word.  It’s so hard to put you down even for a moment.  I look up and it’s 2 a.m. and I must go to work in the morning.

We will meet again tomorrow, same time, same place.



Some of those books are:

  1. Cooked by Jeff Henderson
  2. The Road of Lost Innocence by Somaly Mam
  3. Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston.
