"Grandma I need you please help me I cannot live like this anymore." I collapsed on the damp grass and cried then I felt her warm hands on my shoulder I looked up she softly tells me she’s here now.
Copyright Keisha Martin excerpt from Hours Of Darkness
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.
The waves beside them danced; but they
Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:
A poet could not but be gay,
In such a jocund company:
I gazed---and gazed---but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought:
For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.

"I am sorry –I know that I have said this time and time again but I can now be honest to you that I have always been scared the moment I looked at you when we were partnered up in High School. Everything that I thought I was sure about made no sense to me all that immersed me was you it has always been you and I used my Grandmother death as a crutch and then when I became a Vampire. Stephen I can't live without you so please tell me that I have the slightest chance to gain back your love—give me the opportunity to make right all the wrong's I have done to you—please just please baby let me pick up the pieces of your broken heart."
