My new book: Beyond the Plain now on sale (2030 hits)

The poetry in Beyond the Plain covers poetry written over a span of 20 years, beginning when I was 14 years old. If you'd like to read a few before you check out the book, visit my personal web site http://ehughesbooks.com and click the link to "Beyond the Plain" or if interested, buy here: https://www.createspace.com/3359367

The book deals with topics like [the beauty of] Nature and environment, God, poverty, single motherhood, LOVE, happiness, even depression. Just a melange of topics.

By the way, the book isn't exactly "new". It was first published in 2005, but I've decided to re-publish with my current publisher. Some of the poetry from the first print has been removed, some new ones added in, for example. Hope you like the book, take care, and God bless.


A Snake Slid Under my Door

I am awake at night,
to close my eyes no more,
in fear of the snake,
underneath my door
begging me for,
its secrets to keep,
not to reveal its secrets,
from my sleep,
about how he creeps,
under my door to sweep,
my innocence,
from underneath my feet,
and rob me of my,
I enter my room,
my bones a shake,
in fear of, this slimy snake,
who will make,
me surely partake,
and violate,
my skin a nake,
and have his cake, when violent.
I drag my feet,
and I dread
the snake that slides,
into my bed,
behind my mother's oblivious head
and leaves me dead,
with nothing but,
the blood I shed,
and a tearful eye,
to peer the door within it’s sight,
with hate and fright,
awaiting daylight, that I long to see
to cast the snake,
as cast he be,
away with my innocence,
my innocence that he stole from me...
