Doubling Time

So maybe I won’t be your
good morning or good night
Maybe I won’t be able to
bake you that birthday cake from scratch
or massage your favorite oil
into your hair or even paint your toenails
your favorite shade of sea green.

And maybe we won’t be able to cry together
or hold each other’s hands delicately, tenderly, tightly
when it really matters—when it really counts
Because maybe love doesn’t conquer everything
and that’s the real lesson, the real truth
hidden beneath our utopian relationship
But you know what?
I still believe our love has no half-life.

My Mind:

Ingredients

  • 6 c. Overthinking
  • 2 1/2 c. Try Harder
  • 1/2 c. Fear
  • 5 Tbs. Worry
  • 4 Tbs. Stress
  • 2 tsp. Sorrow
  • A pinch of Anxiety
  • A single grain of Starlight

Instructions

1. Heat the Overthinking in a saucepan until boiling

2. Add Worry, Fear, Stress, and Anxiety to Overthinking in the saucepan and heat until about 300°F (or hard crack)

(Note: If it is not smooth, try adding a little bit more Fear, it really helps with the consistency)

3. Combine all of the ingredients (except for the Try Harder and Sorrow) in a container that can logically only hold about 6 cups and set it aside for at least 5 minutes, or until it settles.

4. While the other ingredients settle, whip up the Try Harder with an egg beater or a whisk until peaks start to form. If the peaks are not staying up, add more…

Hi, and welcome to my website.  I’m the author of The Land Without Footprints:  Shadows Amongst Shadows, which is published by Sweatshoppe Publications.  The book is now available in paperback and as a Kindle eBook.  You can purchase the novel on Amazon here. And also on Barnes & Noble here.

The story is set in the Modern Middle Ages, the age after the ages of Earth, when humans inhabit a planet where, unbeknownst to them, the moons control every action. What remains of the Earth is confined to books. In fact, many have decided to live by the rules of those books once called fiction. But no fiction or reality rules over the Mystic. He rules by only two laws: obey his desires and obey your desires. His desires are twofold: virgins and immortality. However, the desires of his subjects are as wicked as ever known. But the Dagens, a family rooted in the old ways of society, cannot give into their desires. They cannot kill just to kill, hate just to hate, destroy just to destroy. Yet if society is to become what it once was, the Dagens must destroy freedom and place chains around those who no longer wish to be chained.

Check out the site and get to know the characters, cultures, and lands of the book a little better!
