I have just finished the second of Paulas books, paula light, who blogs over at light motifs.
Her book going dark is a great one. Its a short read, the audio version is 41 minutes in length, so I was able to read it in one sitting! It is a fantastic page turner!
If you love poetry and short stories then this is the book for you! I loved the dark poetry in this volume. My favourite pieces were angel, waves, and kalaideascope.
Paula is a fantastic writer. I’ve read both of her books now and both of them left me wanting more! I highly recommend you read them. The links to them are below!
the amazon link is

Do enjoy them! You will not be disappointed!

Thanks for the fabulous reads Paula! I thought the two books were awesome!
Just a few minutes ago
In my room
Loud, and very scary
the bombylious noise
of a bumble bee
it freaks me out
so my dad
Has to come in
and kill it
then and only then
I calm down again
This week I am again participating in sue vincents writephoto prompt, if you’d like to take part then go visit her at her blog, which I will link below.
He walks alone
Deep in thought
A deep thinker
Everyone knows that about him
He’s on a journey
A journey of self discovery
A misty sky
As the hills roll by
He adores nature
Long may this peace last, he thinks
I’ve just had the pleasure of reading Paula lights new book, burnt offerings. Paula blogs over at Light Motifs, and she is a fantastic writer, she writes poems, fiction and the book is a collection of short fiction stories and it also has some poetry in it.
It was a great read! Entertaining, gripping, and it kept me wanting more!
My favourite stories in the book were the smoothie, valentines, and there was also a poem about being from different places, that I really liked!
The book is available on kindle, and in audio. I read the audio version!
Its a short read, I read it in one sitting!
I highly recommend this book! If you enjoy poetry and short stories, then this is the book for you!
Do have a read of it I will put the link to it below!

Her book kept me distracted when I was unable to sleep last night, so, thanks so much, Paula!
I am so grateful for the distraction!
I am filled
With deep shame
When I think of you
You told me
I was a nothing
If I didnt
Listen to you
That I should
Never question it
Were you lying?
Welcome to fowc, with fandango! To participate in todays prompt, check out fandangos post here!
Todays word is inconspicuous!
she watched everyone
but she herself
nobody took notice of her
not for the first time that day
if they were just too wrapped up
in their own lives
or if she really
was not attracting attention
was she invisible?
she certainly felt as if she was
her mind began to drift
she began to dissociate
she looked at the clouds above
wouldnt it be nice she thought
to just float away
float away on a cloud
and with that
she closed her eyes
and fell into a hazy dream like state
she awoke some time later
not knowing the time, or day
where was she?
then she remembered
she was sat on this park bench
A lot of hours had passed
Was she dissociating or sleeping all this time?
she didnt know
But it had been fun
i could have been beautiful
but you spattered me with blood
i might have been graceful
but you knocked me into the mud
i could have been courageous
but you crumpled me into a ball
i might have been brave
but you made me feel so small
i could have been intelegent
but you taught me not to try
i might have been brilliant
but you told me the truth is a lie
i could have been trusting
but your promises lay broken
i might have been confiding
but you taught me to leave everything unspoken
i could have been independent
but you left so many needs unfilled
i might of been self-reliant
but you made it so i couldn’t rebuild
i could have been whole
but you tore me all apart
i might have been so much more
but you destroyed my growing heart
This is a poem about my experiences of being a child abuse survivor, this was written to my abusers.
