I’ve never done this before, but I decided to post a random poem and chapter of my book, Angel-Lover. I have hit over a hundred visitors now, with each of my latest posts, which is such a blessing from the Lord.
Those of you who don’t know me in person may not be aware that I have a couple of self-published novels. The most recent one, Angel-Lover, can be found here in e-book and paperback form: http://www.lulu.com/shop/search.ep?keyWords=Angel-Lover&categoryId=100501
Be warned, this is a book that discusses cutting and is for teens and older.
I feel strange, I feel crazy, I feel insane when I’m with you
You’re so weird, you’re so loony, you’re so very, very confused
Yet you’re lovely, yet you’re dear, yet you’re amazing and thoughtful too
And so I go and do the things, all the things that you ask me to.
You make me crazy, you make me strange, you make me go insane for you
You’re so perfect, you’re so happy, you’re so wonderful, it’s true
Yet you’re so different, so unfamiliar, one of a kind, of a very few
But there’s no one, no thing, no being, who I’d rather be with than you.
School was over for the year. Chad’s junior year was over. Along with his life.
Three months without Angelique.
Chad left Angelique’s street after watching her walk home for the last time for three… whole… months. He felt the emptiness surge through him like never before. She was leaving the very next day for camp with her church friends. She was excited and happy. She never noticed him following behind her at a safe distance.
Chad dragged his backpack home, the bumping of the uneven sidewalk jerking him back to reality every so often, cutting through the numbness. Back at home in his room, he turned on his computer. As a familiar movie flooded the screen, Chad watched, his brain closing down on him. He felt like someone had cut off one of his legs and he could no longer walk. If there was a God, as Angelique believed, then He should have made a rule that the earth could not continue for Chad without his blond angel.
