[POEM] Be sure not to tell

Don’t let anyone know how I sleep.
My quiet contact with you only inspires your urges.
My body magnetized to your heat,
Locking eyes and lips to waste the last of our daily energy
Be sure not to tell.

Don’t let anyone know how strong I love.
Shaming those from the past who wish to be present.
And those who see how happy you are and wish to intercede,
A connection that only fits a unique lifetime of synergy.
Be sure not to tell.

Don’t let anyone know how well I see.
Looking into a place deep within your thoughts.
Knowing and learning your fears only to protect you,
Willing to build walls away from your insecurities.
Not upgrading but uplifting your being to unrealized independencies,
To assist in your self-realization of being my king and the nation’s needed reality.
Please don’t tell.

For if you do,
If you forgot what and who I am to you,
If you allow others to penetrate our kingdom,
If you forge alliances with masked enemies,
You will lose the new essence of your being.
The new essence of who you could be.
The “we” that only few will ever live to see.

Don’t tell,
Just be.

DAYDREAMING

THE ALARM WAS BLARING and I noticed it was 8:45am; fifteen minutes until my final psychology exam.

“Shit!”

I jumped up and threw on my sneakers. I ran into the bathroom to brush my teeth and my hair. I peeked in the mirror before I came out. I looked a mess, I thought to myself, but I had to go. I was lucky to get out the apartment by 8:52am with less than ten minutes left before my exam. Good thing I was only five minutes from campus. I sped down side streets and grabbed a parking spot right in front of the McClure A&S building.

As I walked in the auditorium, I noticed that almost every seat was filled. I raced up the stairs knowing I only had seconds to get set to take the last test of my college life.

“Ava!”

I looked up into the fifth row from the top and saw Dominic. I was so happy to see he saved me a seat. As I finally got to my seat, Professor Sawyer stepped into the room.

“Man, could you cut it any closer?” Dominic questioned me.

I just laughed and thanked him.

“Alright class. Let’s get it poppin’,” Professor started on his semi-cool but still very geekish rant before handing out the tests.

I was so happy that Dominic thought about me. Sure, I wanted to take my test, but I was more excited to take it next to him. Dominic was also a senior majoring in psychology, but not your normal psychology geek. He was 6’2”, a solid 205 with sun-glazed skin and grey eyes. His voice was deep and calming, just like a late-night, quiet storm deejay. Everything about him oozed player — an obvious hoe magnet —but I had never see him treat any woman with disrespect, even with the hoes who threw themselves at him. I couldn’t lie; I had a huge crush on him. The professor’s rant made me fall into a normal Dominic daydream:

I saw the classroom empty and instead of Dominic sitting next to me, he was standing at the front of the room by the teacher’s desk. I looked around and realized that we were truly alone.

“Come here,” he called to me.

Without hesitation, I stood up and started walking down the stairs. I noticed that the shabby sweatpants and t-shirt I originally had on was now a black dress with two slits on the side, set off with some red four-and-a-half inch peep-toe stilettos. I could even feel my hair blowing in some sort of hidden wind from within the classroom.

That’s weird. I finally made it down the stairs and as I took that last step he used all his strength to knock everything off the desk. I knew what was next.

Untraditional is now on SALE!

I must pause for a moment…

I need to take a moment to say how THANKFUL and APPRECIATIVE I am for everyone’s support on my literary journey. The outpouring of love and positivity that I have received thus far is mind blowing for me. So here is a quick low down on what has happened in the past 48 hours:

  • Yesterday evening, I released my book title, Untraditional, and it’s released date for February 2016
  • Also yesterday evening I launched my Facebook Fan page
  • Since the launch of my fan page, I have received 125 likes
  • Since my post yesterday, I’ve have new followers to my blog…that I don’t know (I feel like that woman on the GoDaddy commercial), and viewers coming in from around the world
  • AND my posts have been retweeted and favored by those I do and don’t know on Twitter

For some, this may not mean anything and may even seem minuscule in comparison to others, but for me it means EVERYTHING. Sometimes you just have to stop and thank not only God but the people who are there supporting you. So to you all…

THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!!

It’s On: Book Title and Release Date

So world, it’s time. I’m so ready to let you guys into my world even more than I already have. But I have great news and not-bad-but-not-totally-great news. Which one do you want first?

Ok I’m tired of waiting on your response. 🙂

Let’s start with the latter (not-bad-but-not-totally-great-news) I’m pushing my book release date back to February 2016 — Valentine’s day weekend to be exact. Yes I know, I said I wanted to bring it out for my birthday (November) but I’ve realized that I’ve got be a little more patient.  I know with this additional wait I’m going to give y’all something you’re really going to enjoy…at least I hope so. Patience is key.

So now that that’s out of the way, let’s take about the great news!

I’m excited to announce the title and give you a sneak peek of my book.

Untraditional: A Collection of Passion-FY Short Stories by DNC
So what do you think? Read more about the book on its new page Book: Untraditional.

I’m super excited that the finish line is right around the corner and I’m very humble by all the guidance I’ve receive along this path. I want to give a S/O to my amazing cover designer Mike Lancette who brought my vision to life. You’re amazing man!

Since I have a few extra months before the release, and I know you’re probably like “but can she write”, I will be dropping excerpts from my book up until it’s release. I truly hope you take a chance on a new, engaging and creative writer because this ride is only the beginning and I want you all to enjoy this journey with me. Oh and don’t forget to like my fan page DNC.
