Why would an angel break my heart?

Today you took me back to a place I was glad I left. To a time where my footing wasnt sure and my ground was sinking.

Your words reminded me of a quick sand that almost swallowed me up before I grabbed onto my anchor.

I was happy to find my ballast,

A rock that won’t let me fall.

A point so high I was in cloud nine,

To live my dream as reality.

Yet you took that away from me, drowning me in a well of insecurities,

Why would this ghost step out of your mouth to haunt me?

Why would an angel break my heart?

Shattering to pieces what you built.

Opening closed wounds 

Leaving me to bleed your words of love and comfort

Loosing the battle with your thunderous silence.

I want to go back to my safe haven

To where you hold me whole and envelop me in the security of your arms.

Don’t let me drown sweet angel.

My Saturday post.

Hey Loves,

In my previous post, I introduced you guys to a phenomenal personality, Prof. Charles French. He is one of my earlier followers who actually takes the time to leave a word of encouragement on my posts and drop comments or likes.

He has really fascinating views and content on his blog charlesfrenchonwordsreadingandwriting.wordpress.com

He has remained true to his discipline as an educator I.e a college professor, meaning there is always something to learn in his post while he holds your attention. But most importantly he is someone who loves horror and is an expert on it!

From The King himself Stephen King to all the various aspects, he can hold his own.

And now ladies and gentlemen he has released his very first Book!

I give to you Prof. Charles French

Below is my interview with him.

Interview Questions


p style=”font-size:13.6px;”>-You, being a college professor, blogging and now a novel and how this has influenced your book.


p style=”font-size:13.6px;”>I have taught at college for many years—over 25—and that has certainly had an impact on my novel. I have a Ph.D. in English Literature, and Gothic and horror is one of my areas on interest. Certainly many of the ideas and themes I have examined and taught in these fields: the nature of evil, impact of the past on the present, and good vs. evil, among them have found their way into my novel. 


p style=”font-size:13.6px;”>I certainly enjoy blogging and the opportunity it gives to meet other people, especially those who love books and those who are writers. I am not sure that it influenced  my novel, but the blogging has allowed me to share my experiences with many other people.


p style=”font-size:13.6px;”> A brief flash back also on how it all began and why a novel?


p style=”font-size:13.6px;”>I began writing this novel about 6 years ago. I had begun several books over the years, but I had never finished them. My wife turned to me one day and asked me why I didn’t commit to being a writer, and I did not have a good answer for her. So I did make that commitment, and after 13 drafts, I am finally releasing my book: Maledicus: The Investigative Paranormal Society Book I. 


p style=”font-size:13.6px;”>– Why now?


p style=”font-size:13.6px;”>It is time to let go of the book now. I could keep revising it forever, but there comes a time to say that it is done and to move on to the next project. I am currently writing the first draft of the next book in this series and working on revisions of a young adult novel.


p style=”font-size:13.6px;”>– Has this always been a dream, a bucket list or something that you walked into.


p style=”font-size:13.6px;”>I have always thought about being a writer, but now I am a writer. The level of success I achieve with the books is not something I can control, but I can make sure that I continue to write—the rest of my life.


p style=”font-size:13.6px;”>If you could introduce the book quickly, what would you say about it?


p style=”font-size:13.6px;”>“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” (Edmund Burke) 


p style=”font-size:13.6px;”>Roosevelt Theodore Roosevelt Franklin attempts to make it through life day by day.  Roosevelt 


p style=”font-size:13.6px;”>is a widower, who lost his beloved wife to cancer and a retired history professor, and he has not 


p style=”font-size:13.6px;”>stopped grieving.  He and his two closest friends, also retired and who have also lost loved 


p style=”font-size:13.6px;”>ones, form a paranormal investigation group.  They hope to find an answer to the 


p style=”font-size:13.6px;”>question: is there life after death? 


p style=”font-size:13.6px;”>When asked by a local teacher to investigate a possible haunting of her house, the group 


p style=”font-size:13.6px;”>discovers an evil beyond anything they could have imagined.  This is no mere ghost. Maledicus, 


p style=”font-size:13.6px;”>who was in life a pimp, torturer, and murderer during Caligula’s reign in Rome, in death has 


p style=”font-size:13.6px;”>become a sociopathic demon that attacks the weak and the innocent.  Maledicus threatens a five 


p style=”font-size:13.6px;”>year old child’s life and soul.  Terrified by what they have discovered, Roosevelt and his friends 


p style=”font-size:13.6px;”>must choose to either walk away from this threat , or to do battle with this ancient creature at the 


p style=”font-size:13.6px;”>potential loss of their sanities, their lives, and their souls.


p style=”font-size:13.6px;”>Thank you so much, Prof. Charles French for your time,


p style=”font-size:13.6px;”>Cheers.

My 15days.

Hey everyone, I have been a bit busy this month and a tad bit lazy I am sure. But I have also been doing something I should have done a long time ago!

I started working out! 

Yes I said it! I am working out “again” but this time it’s for real.

I started this earlier in the year before my wedding. Trying to be fit and not get bigger than my dress measurements lol, but I got distracted, I got lazy and eventually I quit!

And I regret that decision. I wonder where I would be on my goal scale or even how far I would have gone.

But there is no point crying over spilled milk. The most important thing is that on the first of this month I started again and boy I’m I seeing results! It’s been painful, challenging, exhausting and rewarding too. The people I workout with challenge me and make it worth every agonizing second and I love it!

The change I have seen in 15days is mind blowing for me. Because its not just a physical thing, it’s also a mind thing and it’s been an eye opening 15days.

I am still keeping at it and I will definitely post results when the time comes. For now I just want to work for the healthier me that I know I can be.

Keep fit and eat clean guys it’s worth it!
