COVER REVEAL: Between My Bleeding Lines

BLEEDING LINES

Meet my first baby, the book I reared for nine months, my very own Between My Bleeding Lines.

Between My Bleeding Lines is a collection of 100 free verse poems about love, loss, and finding yourself in the process.

The art of loving, the pain of losing, and the beauty of healing are shown in the book’s three chapters: For Granted, Forgotten and Forbearer.

I want to express my heartfelt thanks to the ever kind Sarah Doughty for creating this beautiful book cover. Book cover plays an important role and the art you did here is a great help. I cannot thank you enough, love. ❤

The beautiful painting is by Tsukiko Kiyumidzu.

Between My Bleeding Lines will be available in Amazon, Createspace and Amazon partner bookstores starting next week. I will be sharing the links soon!

I would love to know what you think about this cover? 🙂 Please share!

Unsaid Adieu

The half-opened bedroom door.
The mute clothes on the floor.
I could’ve asked for more.

Filled with the scent you left.
Still reeling with the shivers you sent.

Caged inside this haunted house
named after you,
still feeling the ghost of your
unsaid adieu.

Wreaked Havoc

Wreaked Havoc (Inspired by Buses and Trains by Bachelor Girl)

They say love is like walking under a rushing bus
or getting hit by a rapid moving train.
No wonder I was wreaked havoc, after him.

Favorite Memory

Favorite Memory (Inspired by You Are A Memory by Message To Bears)

You are just a memory.
Well, my favorite one.
But I am clearly, oh so done.
I won’t let your betrayal define who I am.
Not anymore. Not anymore.

Clarion Call

Clarion Call (Inspired by Pain Told Love by Tribe Society)

She turned her excruciating pain
into a clear clarion call
to love, accept, embrace herself more.

Dalliance

Dalliance (Inspired by Meaning by Gavin DeGraw)

The ending of our dalliance
gave my life a deeper meaning.
This throbbing, beating ache
confirms pain is part of living.

Air Affair

Air Affair (Inspired by Air by Rayvon Owen)

An air kind of affair.
A love story that’s not even there.
It left me wrecked.
It left me bare.
I was hurt but it’s okay.
It made me better.
It made me stronger.
Thanks to you, my former lover.

Freeing the Criminal

Freeing the Criminal (Inspired by Criminal by Fiona Apple)

You’re the criminal who has been jailed inside my heart.
Locked with ball and chain, I’ve kept you hidden inside.

I thought keeping you will make me blissful and glad.
Nope. I’m just like a lone warrior waging a foolish fight.

So come out now, my prisoner. I’ll accept my lost.
Letting you go is better for me, first and foremost.

Gorgeous Art

Gorgeous Art (Inspired by Between the Lines by Sara Bareilles)

Cruel mind still carries all our shared memories.
Ironically, t’was not able to detect the fallacy
buried between your lying lines.
Thankfully, I have a scarred yet dauntless heart
which made your betrayal a gorgeous art.

Eternal: An Endecha

Sun’s love for moon’s eternal.
They may not shine together
but they still share the same sky.
I hope we’re like them, but we’ll ne’er be, ever.
