What Everyone Wants

Written in the stars

Drowning in our paradise.

It’s not what I thought.

Stories- Mine

my eyes can’t lie

as I saw you walking by

it’s clear to see you’re divine

I just gotta sigh

because you’re so damn fine

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It was watching the trailer for Kate Winslet’s next movie that led me to reading The Dressmaker. As a fan of the beautifully talented Kate Winslet and fashion, I was instantly entranced by the 2 minute trailer and needed to read the book that inspired the film.

The Dressmaker by Rosalie Ham takes place in the 1950s as it follows dressmaker Mrytle “Tilly” Dunnage as she returns to her small hometown in Australia to take care of her sick mother. Right away the little town of Dungatar makes it know that Tilly is not welcome back. As the story progresses, Tilly’s past is slowly revealed while she begins to transform the people of Dungatar with her fashionable creations.

Just as Tilly’s creations transform the people of Dungatar, Ham’s beautiful syntax brings vivid imagery to every page. Ham does an exceptional job of revealing Tilly’s secrets as well as those of the townspeople, to the point where you don’t know what’s going to happen next.

Filled with secrets, love, loss and determination, The Dressmaker will leave you thinking about it weeks after reading. I recommend this book to anyone who loves fashion and dark comedy and is looking for something to cleanse their palate.

Feeling

Entry 2

 

There’s pain from falling in love

and pain when remembering too.

There are times I wish for pain so

I can feel closer to you.

 

Feeling

Entry 1

 

Found friends to love

and a life to drown in.

I’m not scared to feel.

I’m scared of nothing.

Deadly

soft, gooey and warm

bittersweet lies coat his tongue

poisoning kisses

A Kiss

warm like coffee, soft

as the patter of rain, sweet

as chocolate cake

My Punishment

dying inside you’re

devouring this heart, crunching

fat, muscle and bone

From Here

Lost myself in all of you.

Every touch and you’re taking parts of me I’ve been remaking.

I was down in myself, no way in or out.

Then I met you and you turned me out.

Good lovin gave me no reason to doubt.

It was good for a while but then I found out.

Only building me up to be knocking me out.

How could this love give me reason to shout.

I need some savin I’m crying out.

I’m crying out.

Piece of Mind

To the moon

To the stars

A solace found

A peace of mind

Safe from yourself

No one can hurt you

 

          Not even yourself
