The Ocean Between Us...
There's an ocean between us with frightening and crashing waves.There's an eeriness about that I can't will away.How can 2 people who know so much about each other,Two souls that have spent so much time together, be such strangers.We were once so close and physically you are no more then 7 steps away.How can we be so distant?There's an ocean between us,It's rushing up our shores;Threatening to pull me in.Seeing each other daily but we're really far more than worlds apart.Its gut wrenching to be so close to someone but drift so far away.It hurts to choke back tears, to breathe through the pain.We're closing more than just our physical doors.The distance is real, tangible.That feeling of loneliness, that helpless despair.There's an ocean between us and I feel that distance overwhelming me.You are right there but I can't even express my heartbreakIt will only divide us further.You don't even notice the change,Not until it affects youThat's when I become the villain,The one who's different, who's cold,The one creating the distance.There's an ocean between us and I've lost sight of your shore.There was a time not long ago when I could tell you anything,Share everythingbut that time has passed.Is it the fear of losing my best friend,The fear of losing my family that keeps me grasping at the shifting sand the waves keep washing away.Am I an idiot for hoping things get better?For the distance to shrink?For a way to find that friendship we worked so hard to build?Should I finally let the ocean that's separating us wash it all away?Fin

I already have about 300 or so views, 1 comment, 5 readcasts, 56 embedded views lol and a couple of emails to go through but the response to it has been pretty positive so I'm kinda on a writing high lmao. But... I would love a couple more comments.

So I'm late with the posting, as usual.... but in my defense, my arthritis has been kicking my tush and hanging me out to dry. I'm posting a small excerpt now. I still have some other projects I have to work on so bare with me as I trudge through all of them.
I do apologize profusely for the wait and hope you guys like what I have so far.
The excerpt I'm posting is for The Birth Curse Series Book 1 titled Gifted. Once the book is finished and published you can find this excerpt in the first portion of the book title The Latency.
In case you missed Awakened, The Birth Curse Series takes place in a world similar to our own but crawling with supernatural beings run by "The Council"
In book 1 you'll meet two girls Zahara and Sienna both completely different and you'll see how they respond to the challenges of being a supernatural being in a world where you must protect the ignorance of humans as well as their lives. Keep in my lol this is just a rough explanation of the book, so you'll have to wait for the book to be finished in order to get the final run down of the story
Also, sometime this week I'm hoping to have the short story I promised a couple of weeks ago up for reading as I work on the cover... this book 'When the clock strike twelve' will be free indefinitely on Smashwords so if you don't have an account with them I recommend you do that, there are alot of good books for free on the site.
And lastly, I'm hoping to have another excerpt typed up for a completely non supernatural series I'm writing called Knock Me Off My Choos follow the high school hi jinks of best friends Holly Sanz and Rhyz Sinclair on their quest to find their very own Cinderella type fairytale love.
Go ahead and send me an email via The Contact Form or post a comment below. I'll respond as soon as I get the notification lol
