A Casual Glance

Pamela Beckford:

Isn’t this a wonderful poem?

A casual glance,

Sending whispers of love and lust,

Eyes averting eyes,

Embarrassed at the thought of capture.

An innocent smile,

Sunlights glimmer off ivory mirror,

Seductive and sensual,

Beckoning an invitation.

A brush of skin,

Accidental yet intentional,

Goosebumps cascading,

Erupting hot and lascivious.

A pounding heart,

Rhythmically offering itself,

Longing to be cradled,

In the impetuous throes of passion.

A tender kiss,

Long and warm on silky lips,

Without so much as a word,

Two become one.

You’ve built your home in my heart
I’m adrift when we’re apart
I’m most content when you’re here
You won’t return is my fear

Too Long…

Too Long…

Too Long…
Forever giving more
than I receive
People taking for granted
I will always
be there for them…
support them…
agree with them…
No more…
I refuse to be the
only one doing 
all the work to
maintain a
Now is the time
to Stop…
Focus on  myself
Focus on those
who care and give
me as much as
I give them
To look ahead
Leave the past behind
Use my strength for me
Forget those who
don’t matter
Who never really
Who only sought
me out for their
own wants and needs
Never considering 
me for me
What they wanted
from me

How to Write a Book Review.

Pamela Beckford:

I try and review most books I read with more than just stars. Wouldn’t it be nice if every reader took a few minutes and did the same

How to Write a Book Review

One of my Mottos here at Lit World Interviews is ‘Read a Book, Write a Review’. Nice idea, huh? How do you write a review? Scary thought, isn’t it?

Trust me, it wasn’t easy my first time, and not my best. I was afraid I would say something wrong and perhaps dissuade someone from buying a book.

You’ve heard people talk about the KISS method of things. Keep it Simple Sweetie. For me I at times like to say Keep it Short Stupid, but stupid is like a profanity word around here and it really isn’t a nice word, but I was using it for myself. My having just explained all of that shows you WHY I use that definition at times, right?

Let’s give Keep it Simple Sweetie a shot.

But first;

Why Should You Write a Review?

Writing Process

I have no idea what other people do when they are writing. But this is my process.

I am always scribbling down phrases that I think I can build a poem around. And by scribbling, I mean I put it in my phone or iPad.

Then I put those notes into a notebook on Evernote. Or if I’m inspired at that moment I create a poem or the start of a poem.

The problem is that I have all kinds of phrases and words in that notebook of unfinished work. And I forget about them. I really need to drag them all out again. Let them roll around in my head. See what germinates. Maybe nothing. But maybe something really good.

Unfortunately, my tendency is to just pull something new out and write it.

What do you do? Do you keep notes and go back and work on them? Or are they getting dusty and lonely?

On a bright note, I found some quiet time today to write and came up with half a dozen poems.
