Metaphoria
by Melinda Longtin

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Poetry

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Collecting seashells

Off the sands of time,

I race to Grandfather Clock.

Barter,

Burden,

Broken,

Bought.

My broken shells are gone.

The beach is empty.

I

Have

Nothing

But salt and canvas.

What new life

Can I create?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

EXCERPT TWO:

A Meteor Left Me Hollow

The raid is so excruciating. How do I describe a punch From space?

The asteroids never stopped Or so it felt. They mortified my atmosphere. A meteor left me hollow.

It had far too many clones, Born of selfishness. Dominance. Envy. Rage.

A being of vampiric touch, He robbed me Of my organs. Cut my walls And burnt my innards.

Take and take And Take! That is all A herd of meteors Can comprehend Or succeed at.

Dignity is as clouds, Having had their form stolen, And morphed to the sculpture, Only pain could love.

I must save myself. This galaxy Could murder me.

    1. I have loved to write since I was a child. However, I did not choose to publish my writing until I started working at a home for abused and neglected children. Their struggles and recovery inspired me to start inspirwing and have Metaphoria-- it was not about me anymore. It was about sharing my story to benefit others, whether it be other survivors who felt lost and alone or their loved ones who wanted to understand how abuse can affect people. Thank you for your support, and I hope you enjoy Metaphoria.

  4. Beta-readers are indeed extremely important in your process. They will catch mistakes even you or a proofreader didn’t catch, and give amazing tips on how to develop further your story. I used https://honestbookreview.com to get a few reviews and also promote my book. Hopping to be in the top 100 genre lists and see better sales this Christmas season…

    1. Since the whole book is filled with metaphors and imagery, I chose Metaphoria to convey that.

  6. It's been ages since I read a book of poetry; it was so refreshing to read the excerpt.
