Changed ~

Closed off
That’s what they say

Might be an accurate assumption

Why won’t she let me in?
What’s happened to her?
She’s changed
I’m protecting myself

She rarely smiles
Why does she appear so empty?
I miss the sound of her laugh
I miss it too

I don’t understand her
Where is her head at?
I can’t get through to her
Just please stop trying

She’s not the same person
I don’t know what else to do
Does she even see who she has become?
Do I even care what you think you know?

I hope she finds herself again
She seems so absent
She needs to let someone help her
I was never lost

I’m right here
Encased in this protective shell
Hardened by your vile behavior
Hiding from your ignorance and false assumptions
You made me this way
Maybe I have changed
And so should you…

When the Devil falls for an Angel ~

Silver Tongued Devil by C.S. Bailey
His words cut through heart strings like razor blades,
Slithering like silk, his words infect.
Saying all the right things,
Until your admiration cascades.

Haunting your thoughts with a brighter future,
Sipping from your personality.
making you hang on his every word,
Promising to mask your pain like a suture.

Calling you out from your protective notions,
Laying you bare for his every demand.
Crushing your cravings with every touch,
Fiddling like a surgeon with your emotions.

Your wide eyed as you revel,
Swamped by his lust for you.
Bound by his needs,
In love with a silver tongued devil.

Scarlet Angel~
Her words so angelic to his ears
The melodic silkiness wraps around his slithering facade
Everything about her is virtuous
His adoration for her swells

Invading his already poisoned thoughts
Filling his soul with her light
Making him breathe in her every word
Extinguishing his pain from deep within

Breaking down the walls from which you are hidden
She tears you open exposing you for you who really are
Igniting your senses with her every touch
Your emotions raw and filled with lust

Her eyes void of sin as you welter
Drowning in your thirst for her
Enslaved by your needs
In love with a Scarlet Angel

Fall ~

Out of nowhere it suddenly strikes
Cuts down to your core
And your insides ignite

What felt so dead
Isolated and cold
Is starting to waken
While the fire takes hold

You want to run from it
You wish so badly to hide
Your brain tells you to fight it
And keep your heart safely hidden inside

Every breath that you take
Every moment you live
You keep fighting it off
Into your desires you cannot give

But at what moment
Will you finally let go
Let your inhibitions down
Let your blood start to flow

Shut out the nightmares
Break down all your walls
Take a chance on your happiness
And hope he catches you as you fall

Lost ~

I never know what I’m going to feel
Day to-day my heart is trying to heal
It cries
It screams
It’s in so much pain
It smiles
It sings
Each moment never the same
My soul is so lost as it wanders around
It’s chasing the wind
While dancing to its sound
My mind is always anywhere but here
It’s chasing my dreams
Fighting through my fears
Every day is a battle for me
Every moment I’m lost in the sounds of my own melody
Hoping someday
I’ll figure it out all
And from somewhere within
I’ll remove all my doubt

Ever so softly ~

It’s not everyday someone like you comes along
Your smile
Your warmth
Your unselfishness
The way you pick me up when I’ve fallen
I know there are trials and tribulations
Some days the ground quakes beneath us
We feel like we’re being sucked into total darkness
But even as we fall, I reach for you
When I do, you grasp onto me
Taking hold
Not letting go
Doing what you can to keep me safe
Softening the blow as we continue to spiral downwards
Two hearts calling out to each other
Two worlds of circumstance keeping us apart
This will never be easy
Love never really is
But as long as I can find you
As long as you don’t let go of me
Yearning will whisper from our hearts
Ever so softly ~

In Each Other’s Dreams~

Eyes of blue
Surrounded by seas of gray
Hiding in a mist of solitude
Thick walls of steel
Letting no one in
His public facade masking his private despair
Pushing people away
Despising most
A restless soul wandering
Searching for happiness
Chasing a fantasy
Wanting it for reality
Accepting what is
Yet holding on to what could be
Then he sees her
She shines light in his dark world
Unleashes a fire that tears through him
Igniting his soul into a burning flame
He craves to hear the silkiness in her voice
He yearns to taste her lips
He whispers her name in his dreams
Separated by a sea of tormented reality
Her light shines from afar
He calls out to her
Yet she is just beyond his reach
She begins to heal him from a distance
His soul becoming restless no more
The warmth of her laughter
Warms him from within
Until he can hold her in his arms
Touch her with his lips
He will touch her with his words
Her heart will begin to sing
Every night they’ll come together
And dance in each other’s dreams.

Just you wait and see~

Pointing your finger
Calling me names
Never seeing your faults
On me you throw all the blame.

You can get angry
You can get mad
But when I open my mouth
It’s my fault everything‘s gone bad.

You say I live in the past
And I don’t even try
When I tell you that’s not true
You tell me I lie.

The pain that I feel
I’m dying inside
I want it all to go away
I just want to hide.

The years we had together
I thought it would never end
Now we’re two different people
I can’t even call you my friend.

Your anger and judgment
Your mind always closed
I can’t take anymore
I feel raw and exposed.

I’m sorry you’re so bitter
Why are you so mean?
I’m sorry I can’t fix this
I wish all of this could have been seen

You say no one will ever love me
Or be able to put up with me
Behind my glaring stare
There is so much hurt I won’t let you see.

I hope that one day you’re wrong
That there truly is someone out there for me
I’ll be happy, I’ll be safe, and I’ll be strong
Just you wait and see.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic Must Read!
By Christy L Pastore
This review is from: Raven’s Innocence: A Snowhaven Novel (Kindle Edition)
Wow! Loved this book! Truly an excellent debut novel from Nicky D. White! This was a book that kept me guessing right until the end. White hits her stride in her writing with vivid details and the creation of likable characters. There were so many unexpected twists and turns, it could not have been better.

Raven’s Innocence introduces you to Raven Pierce, a Psychologist whose specialty is helping people through their own emotional journey. However, when it comes to her own life things aren’t as easily diagnosed. Enter the sexy and mysterious Grant Alexander who drives Raven’s emotions to new levels of confusion.

Even the secondary characters were interesting – you’ll love Raven’s BFF Kat and their playful witty banter. Asher will “wooo” you with his charm.

There’s something intoxicating and wickedly delicious about Raven’s Innocence. I am ready for the sequel!

Fantastic job Nicky! I look forward to reading more from you!

I love writing reviews for debut novels/books. This is probably the most exciting and nerve-racking time for a new author. Honesty is important.

I am thrilled to have been part of this experience for Nicky. Receiving your ARC and waiting vicariously with you for your book to go live was a new experience for me as well.

Your first book Raven’s Innocence was a spectacular debut. I enjoyed your story. Raven, your main character is well written and extremely likable. Grant, while complicated had an interesting dark side. He turns out to be quite mercurial and unpredictable. Your story touched on my emotions and was funny as well. There was a perfect balance. I love the relationship that Raven and her best friend Kat share. Their friendly banter makes reading about them entertaining. The story kept me interested and the ending was unexpected. I am really looking forward to the next book. I also hope to get more of Kat and Asher in the next book.

Entertaining, witty and the ending….

I gave this book 5 stars!

Raven’s Innocence, the debut novel of Author N.D.White introduces us to Raven Pierce, a beautiful, smart woman whose world has been turned upside down by a freak accident and the appearance of Grant Alexander, the sexy, handsome attorney who comes to her rescue that night. As a psychologist, it is Raven’s job to help her patients navigate their emotional journeys through their lives, and she’s very good at it. However, when it comes to her own life, her feelings for Grant leave her confused and frustrated, and she is totally unable to figure out the complicated, enigmatic, gorgeous man. This is a deliciously wild ride of emotion, culminating in an ending that made me gasp! I’m looking forward to the author’s next book in the series… I’m hooked!
