Identity

Look here

See not

Feel fear

Fret not

Love, my dear

Hate not

Do it!

Risk it all!

Do not!

You might fall!

Leave it

Says one

Hold on, says another

Stay a while

Says one

Move on

Says the other

Chuck it all!

Why bother?

There’s a right

There’s a left

There’s yet another right

And then there’s a wrong

One on each shoulder I carry

Black and white

they say

Angel and the devil

They smirk

One glides up

When the other becomes heavy as lead

It’s up to me

To still walk straight ahead

Can I?

Pushed

Pulled

Shoved

Jabbed

At the end of it all

Who am I?

A tug of war

Of a human marionette.

Balance

One half memories

One half fear

The future looks bleak

And the present

Seems too dear.

The past is all that remains

To guide the reins from here

So how about balancing

The scales of harm and happiness

To love yourself foremost

And not let anyone come near?

Ride Along, Love.

Felt like a lifetime

Took less than a second

No, it wasn’t just a look

It was the aftermath of an enigma

What else could have made me climb on

To the back of the unknown

Whooshing through the streets

Of a quiet, sleeping town

Braving the chill

Sharing a warmth

The ride went on

Even when the drive had ended

Because when you looked at me

And took my hand

It felt like time itself stood suspended

So take me out again

I wouldn’t ask you to pull the brakes

With a smile and a nod,

A question and a thought

With a hand extended

My life you’ve upended

But I smile

I laugh

On a happy high

And I’d hold on

Grab on

Echoing a contented sigh

For you see

You’ve got me

Till the end of the road is nigh.

Why A Poet #2

She couldn’t rhyme

To save her life

But one day

Became a poet

They say

She fell in love

And poetry flowed

For it knows no rhyme

Nor reason

Nor is it confined

To one particular season

It’s made of passion

Strong enough

To bubble and to rise

It’s a cauldron

Bound to overflow

For nothing less would suffice.

Finally, a White Christmas (#Blogmas 1)

Hello my lovelies!

It’s been a long time since I’ve spoken with you (discounting the ramblings of my heart seeping through poems). So here I am today. November has been a long and arduous month. I couldn’t be more glad that it’s over. December’s here! Finally! It’s my second favourite month of the year. I’m partial towards January because, hello, birthday month!

<!–more–>

Title: The Pretender
Author: HelenKay Dimon
Genre Romantic Suspense
Release Date: December 26th!
About The Pretender:
They say it takes a thief to catch a thief, and Harrison Tate is proof. Once a professional burglar, he now makes a lawful living tracking down stolen art. No one needs to know about his secret sideline, “liberating” artifacts acquired through underhanded methods. At least until one of those jobs sees him walking in on a murder.
Gabrielle Wright has long been estranged from her wealthy family, but she didn’t kill her sister. Trouble is, the only person who can prove it is the sexy, elusive criminal who shouldn’t have been at the island estate on that terrible night. She’s not expecting honor among thieves—or for their mutual attraction to spark into an intense inferno of desire.
Under the guise of evaluating her family’s art, Harris comes back to the estate hoping to clear Gabby’s name. But returning to the scene of the crime has never been riskier, with their hearts and lives on the line.

About SHELTER (Coming 12/26/17):

His life is chaos and confusion. It’s a storm of uncertainty and raging emotion.

Sutton Warner is a mess. Everything in his life feels like it’s unraveling.

He’s let a lot of people down lately, including his daughter. Sutton always promised his little girl he would never disappoint her and that he would always be there when she needed him. Until he wasn’t.

The truth is, he’s used to disappointing the women in his life. First was his mother who couldn’t find a reason to stick around when he was growing up. Then there’s his ex. The woman who takes unbridled delight in making his life incredibly complicated. Luckily, his daughter is still young enough to believe her old man is some kind of hero. But, he knows the day is coming when she realizes the truth, that he’s just a man with some serious flaws and a list of ever-growing weaknesses.

Finally, there’s the woman he’s desperately trying to forget with every shot tossed back and each pill popped.

He more than disappointed Emrys…he almost got her killed.

Her love is steady and sure. It’s a shelter shaped by conviction and silent assurance.

Emrys Santos is lost. Everything in her life feels pointless and futile.

She’s been busy running away from her feelings and all the people who love her the most—including her best friend, the one person who knows exactly what she’s been through. They promised to always stick together and to lean on one another. It was a promise Em had to break so she could lick her wounds and figure out her next move. For once, there is no easy way out of the tangled web of emotions she’s caught up in, and right now, she recognizes that all roads lead back to Wyoming…and back to Sutton.

The man she nearly got killed.

Shelter is a standalone novel, the second book in the Getaway series, which features the hardheaded and brokenhearted Warner brothers and the women who dare to love them. These boys are very good at putting the wild in wilderness.

About ESCAPE (Coming 1/30/18):

Everything inside of him is screaming that he needs to run, he needs to go, he needs to escape.

Lane Warner is used to being overshadowed and overlooked.

After all, he’s the youngest brother and the most laid back one in the family. He’s the one known for going with the flow and not making waves, even when things seem to be at their worst.

Very few things in life have had the ability to rile Lane up and get under his skin. At the top of that list is his childhood friend Brynn Fox…no…Brynn Warner. The fact that they share a last name was the one thing that has the power to light him up and spin him out of control like no other. There was no calm, cool and collected when it comes to all the reasons why Brynn had to become part of his family.

It’s slowly killing him to keep wanting what he can’t have, so Lane sees only one way to stop himself from doing something they’ll both regret…he has to leave.

Everything inside of her is calling out to find him, to follow, to bring him home.

Brynn Warner is used to being stuck between a rock and a hard place.

After all, she’s the daughter of an unrepentant gold-digger who never once blinked at being the cause of her daughter’s pain and suffering.

Very few things in her life have ever brought happiness and a sense of security. At the very top of that list is Lane Warner. She has unwaveringly loved the youngest Warner since the first minute she laid eyes on him. He was everything Brynn ever wanted and everything she knew she could never have.

Sometimes the right choice is the one that hurts the most and Brynn’s had to make a few that felt like they might be the end of her.

When Lane takes off, one thing is clear, the only choice Brynn has is to go after him.

She’s going to bring her wayward cowboy home….whatever it takes.

Escape is a standalone novel, the third book in the Getaway series, which features the hardheaded and brokenhearted Warner brothers and the women who dare to love them. These boys are very good at putting the wild in wilderness.
