Poetry has become an essential part of my life. I’ve found a place to express my hidden emotions. Some of my poetry no one will ever read, it’s more venting and healing than anything else. The rest I share on my blog or newsletter, and I’ll be releasing my first poetry book, “Just Her Poetry Seasons of a Soul” March 22nd.

While I’m writing a book, I channel my feelings into a poem or two. Here’s the poem I included in “The Button”:

UNWELCOME GUEST

I feel it when I’m uncomfortable.

It is always there, hiding, waiting.

That shallow breath,

that tight grip—that feeling.

It draws my attention

back to where it came from.

A time—

a time when I wasn’t so strong.

I was helpless.

I was young.

I’m none of those things now.

Yet it stays.

It’s an unwanted guest

that lurks in my body,

that has overstayed

its welcome.

It seems unaware

that it isn’t wanted anymore.

So I carefully guide it to the door,

fumbling with the lock.

It clings to the doorway,

hanging on to my past.

Smiling, I gently push it out.

We are both free as I release it.

She was born and raised in the foggy Bay Area, but in 1990 relocated with her husband, kids, dogs and cats to the Sierra foothills in Nevada City, CA.

Rave Reviews Book Club’s Spotlight Author Tour Featuring Bernard Foong

I’m so excited to host fellow #RRBC and #RWISA author, Bernard Foong! He has quite a story to tell, and I’m sure you’ll enjoy the following passage.

* * *

How much of this book is based on my personal experiences or those of someone I know?

The Truth Will Set You Free is base entirely on my personal experiences. This book is a chapter from a larger volume from A Harem Boy’s Saga – II – Unbridled; a memoir by Young (a 5-book series). I took the liberty to change the actual locales and names, to protect their identities.

Book excerpt:

…After a series of invigorating dances with the party twins, I was ready to call it a night, but under Dorothy’s insistence, I stayed. Nobody at the party knew of my sexual inclinations except me. During a slow dance, Dorothy leaned her head against my chest. Although this intimate way of dancing was not new to me, I had no intention of leading my friend on. I tried to keep a polite distance. Dot, thought me shy and continued her aggressive approach. I had little choice but to go with the flow since she held me tight with no intention of letting me leave anytime soon. The moment arrived when her lips almost touched mine. She looked into my “eyes wide shut,” and expected romance to sparkle between us. I did not back away even though I did not feel the same as Dot. Since it was Valentine’s Day, I did not wish to upset her. I play-acted, as much as I could. In my mind, it was the correct thing to do. After all, I will be back to London in a week and would not be seeing my Malaysian friends for another year. To me, this was merely a moment in time to make my female friend feel good about herself.
