Another Shot by Stephen Anthony Brotherton by is an interesting novel. Jo-Jo comes searching for Freddie almost after thirty years. After their teenage love affair, they parted ways and moved on with their lives. How does the reentry of Jo-Jo in Freddie’s life affect him?
The rekindling of their love brings back so many memories, untold feelings and apologies. Freddie and Jo-Jo both are still in love with each other but they dont know what to do with that love. The timeline in the story is unique.
The author also mentioned a thing or two about certain mental illnesses, broken families and kids dealing with their broken parents. The best part is the author wrote this story inspired by some true events in his own life. An entertaining book. The pace felt a little slow in between the pages but the story as a whole is very sweet.
Cry Another Day!
From my book ‘Poems of The Clipped Nightingale’
Available on Amazon. Read it here.
I feel warm and safe in your arms,
They won’t be around me one day.
I snuggle closer to you and breathe in your smell,
That’s gonna disappear and leave me in dismay.
I cherish the way your skin feels against mine,
I know one day it all will vanish away.
Your strong fingers pat my fears afar,
They won’t be there forever so, I wanna hold them now and play.
I know there comes a day when you will wanna go away,
I will have to let you go, I won’t have a say.
I have you now and I own you this moment,
I decided to make the most of it and cry another day.
