About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
The moments in this book, from the familiar, poignant ache of lost love in "Almost Lover" to the gentle transformation in "Red & Blue Alice", are guaranteed to touch your heart. Jess Kristie doesn't pull any punches as she takes us along her path, reminding us that sometimes in life we win, pull ourselves up and start over again...but sometimes we don't. Sometimes there are moments in life that change us so profoundly that we have no choice but to become what life has shaped us, destined us to be.
Life isn't the destination. It's the journey, and the days you spend dreaming in darkness before stepping out into your own new beginning.
Extraordinary work from an extraordinary author.
Jessica's poetry is a divinely classic work of art. Her flowing imagery is clear without a second of awkwardness. The poignant story is bold, a blatant display of pain, and suffering woven into the vision her words create.
The perfect order in which the poems are placed creates the sense of a diary, a fascinating collection of the poet's most intimate thoughts.
`Sarafina' You shine
The author guides the reader into the myriad of emotions experienced in the victim's abyss. `Induced Sleep' finds the battered soul in a medicated state, drowning in the pain, yet here she begins to process her choices as she meets her self in the crossroads.
Still, further into the pain `Force Forgotten' paints a bird's eye view of the crime and the victim comes face-to-face with the perpetrator.
`My legacy won't be this,
but yours will.
Stew in your own sin.'
This revelation frees her to search for a healing aid. The hallways greet her with doors of deception. `Bad Religion,' `This Mourning,' and 'Walking Wounded' portray encounters with some disingenuous souls that clutter the pathway.
In 'Temporary Royalty' she begins to experience the highs and lows from within a different place. Here, she sees tiny glimpses of light periodically penetrating the darkness. Later, The bud starts blossoming in 'Love Letters.' The fabulous poet surprises with prose. The change symbolizes a less rigid environment, freedom. A different place depicted from within a different style.Read more ›
