Do not leave him unsupervised,
For those flames in his eyes
are burning for the stranger
he’s been dreaming of.
Leave him unsupervised
to throw away your history.
If his eyes burn for her,
he doesn’t deserve your
Reading Jodi Picoult’s novel Mercy. Feel like screaming, so I wrote a poem.
I like to go split wood. Well, or write a poem.
When I’m really freaking out, I clean. It’s always VERY bad when I’m cleaning. 😉
Two thumbs up for this one…Great work….
She clearly got the wrong bloke !
Well, I have to say, *I’m* not very impressed with him at the moment! lol
Wow… I’m intrigued will have to read!
Even though it’s a modern story about euthanasia, set in the US, it’s got a lot of echoes of Outlander:
Scots in North America
Uncle Angus (old guy, not stuffed Scottish terrier)
time travel (in dreams)
chief saves his men from fighting at Culloden,
chief tries to die at Culloden
I’m not sure if these are just generic things if you add a Scot into your narrative, or if I am just particularly Outlander sensitive.
Nah, not just Outlander sensitive…that’s odd to have so many similarities. Hmmmm.
Last night, one character was walking around a naked man trailing her fingers, just like the Outlander wedding night scene! At that point, I flipped to see when the book was copyright. It was 1996! So it’s 4 years after Outlander first came out, which makes general inspiration possible, but 19 years before the series aired.
Oh, how true! that dirty….:-)
Thanks for coming by, Hollie!
May this be unfounded for you, and those with whom you are closest.
This one is book related. All good.
