Ash Man

You smell like an old book,

Like dust and chemicals and mold,

Do you not care of how you look?

So worn, so tired and cold.

You remind me of death and decay,

Stinking like a funeral home,

If I were to leave would you be in dismay?

For only side by side is where we have roamed.

I fear you may blow away if I dare let a breeze in,

As your ash is spreading about as you stand,

Tell me, would you even feel the gentle prick my pin?

If only better in life had I planned.

Worth everything and nothing at the same time,

Your life was up far before I can recall,

Perhaps we should leave and stop this crime,

To better us here in the wall,

After all, you smell like an old book,

And they’re bound to find you if they just look.

Paisley: Love it so far. Must read!

Kap: The ending was fantastic. As always she managed to make the book even more intersting when I thought she couldn't exceed what she has done previously. I believe the next book will be my favorite!!

LadyPNera: I couldn't put it down, I swear I killed Colton 10 different ways, burnt his mother to a crisp, hung the father, stabbed the brother *whew*. I think I will go and sleep now.

sealatpensacol: Story started out not dragging. Captured my attention immediately. Makes you wonder how the author can come up with anything else but he does.

Leanne: You are incredible. How mind fucked in Nathan and you write about it brilliantly.At the beginning of the book it was very methodical, sentences were brief. I was hoping for some more depth then kapow! You obviously enjoy writing the guts of the story everything else is superfluous. Truly brillian...

Ashley: Loved it just wish it was longer.

Michaella Subtyl: This book is everything. Love the writing style and creativity💕

jasminbantasan: I am being disturbed by this rating

Kaitlyn: I like how it has so much drama I would most definitely recommend this book to friends.

Demi: The author does an amazing job of capturing how dull and repetitive ever day is for Cindy, and they continue to capture the emotion and fully submerge the reader into Cindy's emotions throughout the book.
