WEP - A LIfe Stolen


A Life Stolen

I shared myself
You wanted more
I shared my hopes
You crushed them
I shared my dreams
You despised them
I shared my joy
You took it
I shared my love
You destroyed it
I shared my life
You stole it.

  1. Many congrats, Yolanda! Great intro to Stowy Jenkins, pleased to meet him. Or maybe not, considering his leisure activities... :)

    Best wishes always,

    1. Thanks, Nila:
      Nope, not a man I'd ever want to meet. Getting him out of my head is bad enough. :)

  4. Love your poem. A painful truth for too many. Literally and metaphorically.
    A minor quibble. Should your in the fourth line be you?

    1. Thanks, Donna!
      I really enjoyed creating it too. Made a few more snow and blood covers for the other books too! Got home from the beach in time for the snow! Picture of the knife introducing the story is an example. Cherry juice works great if you don't have red food coloring. :)

  10. Many congratulations, Yolanda! That's just fantastic!

    You've certainly created a powerful image of Stowy's mind in so few words. If the rest of the book is in a similar vein, it should be a thrill ride indeed.

    1. Thank you, Arpan:
      I enjoyed writing Stowy's story, in an odd sort of way. But the poem did fit his predilections! :)

  11. Congratulations on your new release. A poem that fits a mystery writer. Perhaps you should write a mystery and have the killer leave bits of a poem behind until all the lines are connected?

    1. Hi, Nancy:
      The poem is closer to the writer than you know. Actually, that's a great idea for a mystery. You should try it! Thanks!

  14. I love that poem, so short but so meaningful.

  15. I like this - sharp words that express feelings I've had myself when I was going through first marriage and divorce. Sometimes we feel like we're wasting our time when emotions aren't returned, but in the end, it usually serves a purpose - whether to move us forward or to get us out of a bad place. Good luck with the Snowman, it looks like something I'd like. (the knife and it's tell-tale colour . . .red of course)

  16. Short, sharp words...yet deep on meaning, I've no doubt... *shivers*
    This is a fitting introduction to Stowy Jenkins.
    Congrats on the release, Yolanda!
    Your cover gets me...every time.

  17. A fright-filled ending there! Excellent work. Lots of emotions in few words.
