Excerpt for Massive Black Hole:
"Cibele had never experienced a death in her family before. She had never been close to someone who had committed suicide. She thought it was one of the ultimate sins. It was inconceivable that someone could be capable of taking their own life. A whole spectrum of emotions swirled around in her mind. She was undergoing a painstaking thinking process. Every conversation she had ever had with Amy about hell and heaven and the reason to be alive were suddenly summarized in one catalytic event: the suicide of a man she had never met. She saw the image of a man with blood-shot eyes falling and disappearing into a black hole, screaming in horror, stupefied with what his soul was going through. Repenting too late about taking his own life. She held the ghastly picture in her head while she waited for Agatha to say something else. Agatha looked at her with a morbid expression on her face. "
Excerpt for Holes in Space - A Poetry Collection:
You are my poem,
versed in love,
rhymed with passion,
worded with desire.
You are my fragrance,
bathed in flowers,
mixed with the scent
of the stars in bloom.
You are my dream,
embroidered in silk,
sewn with illusion,
dressed with kisses.
You are my one, my heart, my love,
my eternal, my life, my light.
You are my forever,
my everlasting poem, you.
