Story Time Friday Banner

This week was almost another non-post week for Story Time Friday. It seems that once it happens the first time, the second is almost inevitable.

Luckily, I have passionate writer friends like Lily Luchesi who go the extra mile (or kilometer for you in the rest of the world 😉 ) to help out fellow bloggers and authors. I woke up to an email this morning containing the following poem, and while I’m still half-asleep, I’d like to get that right out to everyone to start their day with.

Thank you for coming in for the save. I appreciate it. And I’m sure my readers didn’t want to read another of my crappy stories again this week, anyway, haha.

(Don’t forget to check out her debut novel. It’s linked below the poem.)

Poison Canary

by Lily Luchesi

I thought it had been long enough
Since I heard your voice
In person?
What a joke
In my earbuds?
Yep
I thought it had been long enough
But I guess not
When will it be long enough?
When will I stop shedding needless tears over you?
When will this pain go away?
What poison did you inject in me?
Oh, love, why did you ever even look my way?
How did I fall so easily?
Now I’m broken
Battled
I battled with my heart
My mind tells me to forget
But my heart can’t seem to contract amnesia
Not when it comes to you
Like a spider spinning his web
You ensnared me tightly
Wrapped me up to devour me whole
You poisoned me
And I loved every ounce of it
A black widow with the voice of a canary
You trapped me with your lying voice
So saccharine
Yet so bitter
But I’m a happy victim of your charms
Trapped here in your web of deceit

About the Author:

Lily Luchesi is an aspiring, young author/poet born in Chicago, Illinois, now residing in Los Angeles, California. Ever since she was a toddler her mother noticed her tendency for being interested in all things “dark”. At two she became infatuated with vampires and ghosts, and that infatuation turned into a lifestyle by the time she was twelve, and, as her family has always been what they now call “Gothic”, she doesn’t believe she shall ever change. She is also a hopeless romantic and avid music-lover, and will always associate vampires with love, blood and rock and roll. Her interest in poetry came around the same time as when she was given a book of Edgar Allan Poe’s complete work. She then realized that she had been writing her own poetry since she could hold a pen, and just had not known the correct terms. She finished her first manuscript at the age of fourteen, and now, at twenty-one, has two contributing credits in anthologies (listed below) and her debut novel, “Stake-Out”, will be published by Vamptasy Publishing on May 19, 2015.
