"Permanent Shelter"

Cover of leaves

Tatters from pounding

Rain


Flimsy cellophane and

Cardboard walls; collapses in

Pain


A cap of newspapers

Burns in the glaring

Sun


Uncovered heads from their

Dismal corners dashes out and

Run


Concrete cells photocopies

Of photocopies and nothing but

Battlegrounds


Roofs crashes in revealing

Sky overcast with rising

Mounds


Tired bodies cower from the

Shrieks of falling

Bombs


Hands of those who has the

Powers crushes origami paper

Forms


A box with two boards

Angled; coming together at

Peaks


The hand that builds is

Also the hand that smashes

Bricks


Rows of ice-cream planks

Cemented by crystal UHU

Glue


Just as heads on pillows lie

Premature walls; a fist crashes

Through


A yawning abyss swallows

Exclusive


Before the Gone becomes

Intrusive


Fertile land and pregnant bushes

Wonder


Why claws unearth the Never Rested from

Under

Sarah Luongo: I'm a big fan of the format of the book- the concept of incorporating poems and within the story and sectioning off periods of the story with each poem. It made it easier to read, and made the unimaginable easier to comprehend. What some people may skip over may be the most important part in this...

PumpkinCreams: I love how all of these poems are unique.It has a lot of beautiful imagery to them as well.The grammar is perfect. The stanzas could’ve been divided into neater stanzas but overall. Beautiful!

anabanana0329: This book is great if u are interested in Greek mythology.This book is a good book to read.The chapters are very short.But they talk about side gods that aren't the main ones.Its really cool.And I love it very much.

genocon: Didn’t like it at first. The short sentences like it was written in verse. And It seemed like a typical coming of age story. Stupid girl falling for an older man. But after I finished it I looked back and it’s kind of Poetic. A modern Lolita story written from the girls point of view.

Lorna: The story even though it felt like a mixture of frozen, Twilight and Harry Potter was good enough. The book felt very rushed, rushed! Could have been a bit more descriptive at places like the fight between the vampires n witches or even when willow enters the magical realm or even how she feels a...

Henny: Love the story. Waiting for the updates.

mariedavismd312: This was Avery spiritual read. The last 2 chapters where very disappointing. That was such a let down unless there is a sequel. Burgess should have been punished for what he did. There was no explanation for his hatred for Jeremiah. I figured he was being set but just had the wrong person. I lov...
