A Thousand Word Thursday Poem from Eden Winters

First We Were Friends

Come to me softly,
Not to buy my love with gifts
With daring deeds or lofty words,
But quietly on a wish

Come to me softly,
Make no promise now but this,
To always be yourself,
And greet me with a kiss

Come to me softly,
Not to lift me like the wind
Not to carry me away,
But stand by me as a friend

Come to me softly,
Through triumph and through fears,
Laugh with me in happy times,
Comfort me through tears

Come to me softly,
And one day I'll turn to find,
The one I've always searched for,
Has been there the whole time.

Eden, thank you for sharing your thoughts on these football players. Sigh.

Eden's latest, Settling the Score, is now out from Torquere, in ebook and Print. I'm ready to read!

Closeted mechanic Joey Nichols' life is good. His boyfriend landed a major Hollywood role, and is well on the way to superstardom. Joey's bags are packed and soon he'll leave small town Georgia and join the man of his dreams in California, to live out, proud, and together. Days before his planned departure, his lover outs Joey during a televised interview and announces that they've broken up, leaving Joey to face the bigotry of the locals alone.

Bestselling author Troy Steele knows all about having life turned upside down by the media. Now a recluse, Troy shuns all the trappings that come with writing books made into blockbuster movies. He spends his time exacting revenge on a former flame via his novels and hiding out in rural South Carolina, watching celebrity gossip shows. Joey's fifteen minutes of fame bear an eerie similarity to the plot of Troy's latest work in progress. What if Joey could be transformed into everything the fickle ex wanted, as Troy is writing for his fictional hero, and secretly wishes for himself? Once polished, could a diamond-in-the-rough good ole boy confront his ex, then walk away, pride intact? These are Troy's questions, and he's counting on Joey for answers.

And The Angel of Thirteenth Street is out in print now!
