Hello everyone, today I’m going to be kicking off my daily novel feature post series. This series will feature one of my original works and each day I will share some sort of feature from it. This may include a chapter, meaningful paragraph/quote or perhaps something more I’ve yet to expand to. To kick things off; I will begin with the Prologue of my first full length novel Bound, which can be read for free here, or bought as an ebook here for $2.99. I hope you enjoy it, as it’s my favorite segment from the entire novel.
Gone were the days, so gentle and grand,
I was constantly beaten, face down in the sand.
I was broken, bleeding, with no courage to stand,
Like an angel, you were there, you took my hand.
Plagued with feelings, I didn’t understand then,
You offered acceptance, not judgment, you helped me to mend.
You stayed by my side, on you I could always depend,
You know I adored you, my one true friend.
I was in need of answers, to be no longer confined,
It was you, who was searching, for something I couldn’t find.
I knew what you wanted, but it wasn’t in the design,
It wasn’t to you, for that I’m sorry, to whom I was so inclined.
The riddle was solved, but as a result of my being defined,
I caused you pain, hurt you, and then left you behind.
Even still, like a thorn, I stay in your heart,
I wish I could hold you, console you, and go back to the start.
I want start anew, rearrange my feelings, make them restart,
I wonder, would those feelings reach you, when we’re both worlds apart?
As I enter the void, where no light is found,
Even in darkness and fear, I whisper a sound.
In the silence, my voice, in a gentle breeze will surround,
Quietly saying, To You, I am Forever Bound.
