All You Need is Love Blog Hop

All you need it love...

All you need is love…

I’m joining in on a blog hop today over at The Book Maven.  Our instructions were to give away a lil prize to the hoppers (You lil’ bunnies you!), so today I’m offering a free copy of my new novel Angst to the winner of my contest below.  Please read on to find out my thoughts on love.  Love isn’t always the pretty picture everyone wants it to be…

Since I’m a depressive person by nature I’m going to take this Valentines Day and flip it on it’s head with a little of the opposite of mushy-gushy love.  Because Love isn’t all roses, chocolates and make-out sessions.  Love is hard!  Love is insecurity, love is trauma, love is…exposed

I love you is the new exposed…

I said I loved him

We had just met and somehow I knew

I could feel it deep within, overpowering me
Pushing aside my better sense
Devastating my reason

Words welling up
My full heart in my mouth
Flooding over in a rush

I love you

I wanted to hold it back
Self-preservation said I should
But I couldn’t

The truth wanted to be put
Into words

In the car, alone, I cry
Sobbing loud

Not able to see clearly
Screaming, wondering why I put myself out there
Questioning why I asked to be crushed

His words, repeating, Thank you, Thank you, Thank you

My heart is cannibalizing itself
Throbbing with rejection
Tears red hot, stripped

But the truth is, it doesn’t matter that I said it
I already feel it

That is enough, to leave me open

I could die of exposure

Now that you too feel exposed, feel free to enter my contest below and I’ll post soon about the winner!  Thanks for stopping by! (I apologize that this giveaway thingy takes you off my site.  You don’t wanna know, it’s some techy jargon about why this won’t feature a widget. But please still enter!)

  3. Loved the poem!
    Funny nickname…Schmoopsie Poo!


    • Thanks for stopping by. I love that nickname, as a funny nickname, not as one I’d like to be called! haha. Schmoopsie! Reminds me of Seinfeld for some reason. I think there’s an episode with a nickname like that. Classic!


  4. Love the poem. And I have to tell you I would LOVE to win this book. When I read the excerpt, I got chills. Seriously. I know a little something about anxiety (ok, a lotta something). Ok. That’s all I’ll say about that.
    Funny nickname: sexy poopy britches, sugar balls 🙂


  5. Enjoyed your poem!
    Happy Valentine’s day!


  6. Thanks for sharing your poem with us
