A Bit of Poetry

This week RED HOT released! Between my day job and promo, it's been a busy busy week. My lovely granddaughter slipped into the world last Saturday at 5:32am. She and her parents are doing fine. I'm going to visit tomorrow and get to do the grandma thing.

After reading my blog partners's posts for the week, I thought about a story line I began a few years back on a Alpha Vampire Hero who supposed soul mate betrayed him. What kind of changes and shifts would he have made to survive or adapt to the world around him? What animal traits might he possess or use to assist him?

Here's the poem, I wrote as part of the opening prologue as he's journaling on the anniversary of his betrayl and supposed death.

Love's Betrayal
There was a time I would have died for you
I cared for you
Loved you, tended you, nurtured you
Betrayal, uselessness, confoundment,
Is there more or does it end?
Does love ever die? Will the pain ever stop?
Why must you continue to take and take?
They say time heals all wounds and pains
Does the hurt become a welcome balm?
Do I stop feeling wrong?
Now I revile you, hate you, despise you
I will heal, or so I have been told
Life will go on
And so will I again without you

Have a great weekend!

Thank you Serena and Savanna. I'm a published poet prior to my writing romance and paranormal stories. Love's Betrayal is one of my published pieces. There is a personal side to the piece as well. I got to see the wee one today. She's a week old and ruling the roost already. Everytime she cried, their male dog back away looking around like I didn't do it! The female went the other direction like I know better than to hang around here.
