Discovering Sunshine can be found HERE on Kickstarter.
“Blushing in Softness”
i have never felt more beautiful
than when your hands caress my skin
when you tell me you love the softness
that graces your lips upon kissing
sharp collarbones and shoulder blades
i become quiet shyness and sweetness
when you are whispering to me
small promises of love in my ears
wishes of want against my breast
lustful pleads against my thighs
need spreads over this body
up long legs, across soft stomach
gripping tender neck, burning smiling cheeks
soft hands cling to anything in reach
as your love blankets me
to help us forget the harshness of life
in exchange for the softness of a blush

My name is Crys and I have been writing for about 15 years now. I decided to embrace my creativity and finally publish it all after encouragement from friends.
Discovering Sunshine is a 70+ page book of poetry, ramblings, and short-story-esque writings about mental illness, love, abuse, addiction, and more. This book promises to touch on subjects close to the heart and ones we sometimes wish weren’t so near.
