Publishing my first book of poetry has already given me a very thrilling experience! I thank everyone that is supporting me. It’s greatly, greatly appreciated. As I continue to expand my audience for Knocking On Her Heart , I decided that I would like to give you all a small sample of my book. Amazon shows you a snippet of the first few poems. So here’s a poem from the book that you can’t access through the Amazon “look inside” feature:
The butterflies in my stomach must have
been in the deepest of sleep;
Caught up in dreams that seemed to last forever.
Wings as motionless as frozen time,
With no desire to disturb the stillness of the atmosphere.
Slim were the chances of gaining their attention;
Making it impossible to ignite even one flutter.
One would think they were still enwrapped by their cocoons —
Hanging in complete silence —
Completely unaware of the world around them.
Every moment I perceived to be a brush of wings —
Were merely moments of falsehood.
But the day your love shined into my depths,
Was the moment of truth.
Because at that very instant,
I felt the wings of 1,000 butterflies,
Spread in the illumination of your passionate affection.
They were summoned to fly for as long as your love exists in me.
They were beckoned to fly forever.
Thank you for awakening my butterflies.
