Have you heard about THE FABULOUS Slammed Series??!! By the SPECTACULARLY TALENTED author COLLEEN HOOVER?!
Those who haven't WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?! Those who have and READ IT. Pat yourself on the back. LOL. Those who haven't here is the summary of the book and MY REVIEW so you understand the urgency of reading it.
Following the unexpected death of her father, 18-year-old Layken is forced to be the rock for both her mother and younger brother. Outwardly, she appears resilient and tenacious, but inwardly, she's losing hope.
Enter Will Cooper: The attractive, 21-year-old new neighbor with an intriguing passion for slam poetry and a unique sense of humor. Within days of their introduction, Will and Layken form an intense emotional connection, leaving Layken with a renewed sense of hope.
Not long after an intense, heart-stopping first date, they are slammed to the core when a shocking revelation forces their new relationship to a sudden halt. Daily interactions become impossibly painful as they struggle to find a balance between the feelings that pull them together, and the secret that keeps them apart.
Hardships and heartache brought them together…now it will tear them apart.
Layken and Will have proved their love can get them through anything; until someone from Will’s past re-emerges, leaving Layken questioning the very foundation on which their relationship was built. Will is forced to face the ultimate challenge…how to prove his love for a girl who refuses to stop ‘carving pumpkins.’
This poem will basically express how I felt after finishing this lovely fantabulous book.
Handful of Insights
Pierced into my heart
tore me apart
messy case of
I cried and cried
My aching pieces of
with my balls
all over the floor
Made me realize
That I have been
pumpkins all my life
That I never
all I ever did was
about all the obstacles in life
Dragging my feet
Made me stop and think
What have I been doing
That I did
I always did
But I kept admonished
I don't have answers
Why should I keep
the issue when all I will get
is a huge painful
When ever I needed advice
I looked up
Didn't see anyone standing
I am here
I didn't realize
that God was telling me
I am sending some advice
