"Once upon a time, there was a rose that blossomed in the day... and loved at night."
Let the poetry in this book unravel your thoughts and ignite your imagination. Words have the power to heal, to mesmerize, to uplift, to educate. This poetry collection is brimming with barely contained emotions, taking the reader out of the everyday and into a world where words paint moving pictures within the restless heart and mind.
If we take a moment to listen, to close our eyes and feel the world communicate to us through sound and texture, wayward thoughts and naked emotions, we can feel the electricity that pulses beneath the surface of our skin ever so faintly... and this- is where poetry is born within the narrowest parts of our veins, igniting the quiet fire that lives within our hearts.
