Amor Vincit Omnia – Love Conquers All Book Release Update | #Love #Poetry #Prose #WritingCommunity

Just recently, I received my proof copy for the latest book I am soon to release, though admittedly under my Zy Marquiez pen name, it being Amor Vincit Omnia – Love Conquers All.

The above picture shows what the softcover book looks like. A quick note on that though, that ‘smudgy’ looking portion on the left of the white heart is just a glare. That said, the pinkish hearts that interlock do however look exactly as you see them. Just wanted to make sure people knew how it looked.

Now, the tentative plan is for me to start proof reading this copy today, and hopefully have the proof reading and additional Beta Feedback done so I can order another proof copy tomorrow, which should arrive mid next week. Given how important this book is to me, I simply don’t want to make this book available to public access without having had another go at the ‘final’ proof copy.

If all goes as planned, then the book should be available to the public by late next week.

You all have a great day.

Synchronized Heartbeats | #Poetry #Prose #WritingCommunity #Poems #Romance #Love

Synchronized Heartbeats

Embracing deeply
within the carnal canopy of night
they diffuse ultimately united
in serenely resonant wonder
merging to the mellifluous tune
of their fused heartbeats
as they synchronize passionately
and begin beating as one.

The Solace Of Their Dreams | #Poetry #Prose #Poems #Love

The Solace Of Their Dreams

They bask in their oblivion
two nascent stars
mesmerized by each other
chaotic conundrums du jour.

two Alphas
each a world unto their own
reciting inner catastrophes
that only each other could understand

all woven within
the stardust of life
with lifetimes of memories
that always gets shared
in the solace of their dreams

Lost In Darkness

It is in the shadows
that I find respite
but it is in the darkness
that i lose myself.

Blackburn Bits #2 – Libraries | #Books #Libraries #Reading

NoctisBlackburn.com
September 9, 2019

There are many reasons why I absolutely find libraries incredibly intriguing and refreshing. 

Containing veritable memories of the past, be they in fictional or nonfictional format, libraries have always invigorated my soul, for they offer a kaleidoscope of wonder from which to draw upon and examine at length, and countless ways in which individuals can indulge in the exploration of thougth that others have laid down before them.

When I was younger, I always dreamed of having a library just like in Beauty & The Beast, and thankfully I’m lucky enough to have a large library of nigh 1000 books.  Although most of these are of the nonfiction variety for research purposes, I enjoy them all nonetheless.  I have always found incredible inspiration in books of all types, and find them to be one of the most underrated aspects of media today.

Celestial Shooting Star | #Poetry #Prose #Stars #Nature

That wasn’t a comet
traversing the deepest
darkest crevices of space – negative

that was a sultry and salacious
celestial shooting star
named Her

Language Of The Universe | #Love #Poem #Poetry #Prose

The Language Of The Universe

Love is kaleidoscope of all emotional extremes
from shuddering earthquakes and torrential tornadoes
to resounding thunderstorms and even volcanoes;
all wrapped within emotional seams;
Love is a paradise in which you and I verse,
speaking honestly in the language of the Universe,
Love is the most breathless, vibrant and blissful extreme,
a truly precious moment, a midsummer night’s dream.
Love is forgiving, love is kind, love is even blind;
it is the most honest emotion you can find.
Love between two is the most divine connection,
it is Heaven’s own substance, unbridled perfection.
