QUOTES

“It was a very special moment for John's spirit was awakening and he was opening up, I had touched and resonated with his soul. It was more than just cyber sex, more than making love with someone you loved, it was blending souls as soul mates do and it was an incredible moment for the two of us. We both cried beautiful happy tears”
Astrid Brown, A Psychic Affair: A Romantic Novel
"I don't know what you have done, my mind is not my own
For you have magicked me for my feelings for you have grown
I did not set to fall in love, for you must have cast a spell
For you have bewitched me and all my doubts dispel
What spell have you cast to enchant me like this?
To make me fall in love and ache for your kiss”

“I heard your whispered fantasies so clear
Softly told in my ear
I opened my eyes you weren't there
So real my dream, I was so aware
But we'll meet again so certainly
In our whispered fantasy”
Astrid Brown, Whispered Fantasies

WHEN A SOUL CAN READ ANOTHER




WHEN A SOUL CAN READ ANOTHER

You know there isn't a day when I don't think of you
And I know in spite of what you think you know it's not true
I could never lie about how I feel
It's written across my heart in my eyes you know its for real
When a soul can read another there's no hiding place
Look its emblazoned and etched into my face
The years may fly by but time stands still
I've tried to bury the memories with all my will
I'd do whatever it would take
Set me free, let me escape
Don't lie to me anymore for I know, I can see
When a soul can read another you're talking to me
At nights you watch I feel your eyes
You know just as well as me, you cannot disguise
What are we to do, in this world that is in limbo
Please set me free, please let me go

ENCHANTED

VERSES FROM MY BOOKS
SET TO MUSIC

 These are the poems featured in the video and from a new book of mine entitled 'ENCHANTED'

 ENCHANTED

I do not know what you have done to me nor spell you have cast
But some how you have magicked me and wiped away my past
All doubts have gone and wounds have healed and you have mesmerised me
You blew away the clouds of doubt, cleared my vision and let me see
And yet for all you gave to me, you couldn't heal your own soul
Let me return the favour,  help you heal and make again you whole
I wish I could explain what you have given, the riches and the treasures
Not those of material wealth but the love, its joy and all it's pleasures
I may not in this lifetime receive what I really wanted
It matters not for I know in another I will, for I have been enchanted


A SULTRY EVENING

A sultry evening heavy was the floral scent
Suddenly brown and sea blue eyes met
A blended image of a beautiful hue
It felt so right to fall in love with you

As seasons pass and winters come and go
That heady summer seems so long ago
But it left etches deep on my brain
And life has never been quite the same

For as sudden as a summer shower could appear
A seed of doubt grew to become a fear
And as the days shorter grew
From my heart love's embrace flew

And on this sultry evening hot
Memories flood my brain never to be forgot
Of when brown eyes blended with sea blue
Of when I fell in love with you


COME LAY WITH ME MY LOVER DEAR

Come lay with me my lover dear
And lay with me till dawn
Let us taste loves sweet wine and loves sweet music hear
Let us fill the air with passion's song
And loves sweet dance
For it's clear to me it's in my arms you belong
My wine is sweet, come my lover taste
The moon is bright and rises high
Let us not this night waste
For as dawns colours rise with the sun
We will lie spooning as lovers do
And in first light we will lie our souls as one

COMING SOON 'PORTRAIT OF LOVE'



ABOUT THE BOOK

This collection of poems is split into two sections:

In “TALES OF THE SEA ~ A LOVE STORY IN VERSE” I have use the analogy of the sea to describe a love story. It really does not matter if the characters are somewhat strange, the emotions felt are just the same.

The rest of this collection comprises of mainly love and inspirational poetry, much of which I channel from Spirit, exploring all aspects of love. Many too explore the philosophy of life and are designed to uplift and challenge the reader into looking at life and love from a different point of view.

I have written these verses from the heart and I hope they will touch yours.



PREFACE AND ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

Love has many facets, from great wishing and longing, exhilaration, the passion and the ecstasy, to the despair and heartbreak, anger and betrayal and lastly the hope. In mythology when Pandora opened the box and all pestilence to man escaped ‘Hope’ was left and this I feel is the greatest gift to man. This collection explores all of these emotions and most will resonate with you, the reader. All have been written from the heart, as one would expect for it is the seat of the soul. Some have been channeled and for those that have, they are uplifting, to brighten and give ‘hope’ to the sadness and despair that love can bring.

This book is for those, who are about to fall in love, for those who are deeply in love, those who were in love, lost loves and those who always will be and for the deepest love of all “Soul mates”

Acknowledgements
For those who largely remain unseen, our guides and our mentors and for the love of Spirit who without, this collection would not have come about. But most of all for my beloved grandmother Jane, who by far encouraged me to believe in “Anything is possible if you believe in it and to never underestimate the power of the Universe”.  All the greatest projects, buildings whatever start with a ‘Castle in the air’, a thoughtform that becomes tangible.

CASTLE IN THE AIR
I go to sleep and hope to dream
Of fairy tales, happy endings and castles on hills of green
Where a princess fair kisses a toad warts and all
Who turns into a handsome prince with glass slipper at a ball
But fairy tales are not life for real
As for kissing a toad I'd probably squeal
However if we do not aspire to hope
The mendacities of life we could not cope
All things tangible first begin with dreams
It doesn't matter how chances remote that they seem
A wish, a dream is a concentrated thought form it has to start somewhere
All the greatest plans of man began at first as a dream a 'castle in the air'

“Love is the ultimate answer. Love is not an abstraction but an actual energy, or spectrum of energies, which you can "create" and maintain in your being. Just be loving. You are beginning to touch God within yourself. Feel loving. Express your love.

Love dissolves fear. You cannot be afraid when you are feeling love. Since everything is energy, and love encompasses all energies, all is love.”            Brian L Weiss MD “MESSAGES FROM THE MASTERS”

“Know, therefore, that from the greater silence I shall return.... Forget not that I shall come back to you.... A little while, a moment of rest upon the wind, and another woman shall bear me.”

KAHLIL GIBRAN
 A KISS

A kiss so sweet upon your lips
A kiss so sweet as wine
A kiss that honeyed taste
A kiss so divine

A kiss so soft to brush my lips
A kiss so precious to be treasured
A kiss so slow and languid
A kiss so full and pleasured

A kiss can render heart a faster beat
A kiss can a love affair create
A kiss can fall in love so deep
And a kiss can a heartbreak make

A PRETTY PICTURE

I had painted a pretty picture
That was my fairy tale
Where dreams come with happy endings
And into sunsets we'd set sail
I coloured it oh so prettily in a rosy hue
And filled it in so warm and fuzzy
Full of love for me and you
I'd finished my picture completed it with frame
Decorating and surrounding it full of loving hugs
Alas before the paint had dried, over it began to rain
All my love I'd worked into it was so easily taken away
All for one shower of lies
A pretty picture ruined and destroyed that day

MPB ©
 INFLAME

You inspire such feelings
Inflaming desires
Of wanting and needing and fueling a fire
Of passions so immense so incredibly strong
Crazed with emotions for you that I long
Entwined in your arms
And smothered with your kiss
Heaven cant match this wondrous bliss
And when we blend into just one
I'll melt in your embrace, in your kiss I will burn

MPB

LOVE'S TABLE
Come lay with me in my arms soft
And drink in my kisses till you've had enough
Together on love we will dine
Tasting love's sweetest of wines
And when we've devoured and had our fill
The sweetest of dreams sustain us forever still

I'VE LOCKED THE DOOR


I'VE LOCKED THE DOOR

Ties that bind and ropes that burn
Trying to escape trapped at every turn
A destiny that is not mine
But in an others I'm entwined
But why should this be me
This is your task and your destiny
For your wrong doing you must repent
Or forever in limbo your life will be spent
All I did what attempt to show
And give you the knowledge for your soul to grow
I tried to help you but instead
My life you sapped and my love you bled
It could have been easy but your mind you closed
Your heart is empty and your soul devoid
There's no point in trying any more
You're on your own now I've locked the door

Some Reviews

Reviews

Great read, it's not the usual romantic novel it's a bit of a cross genre being informative and paranormal but it had me hooked, I would love it if the author wrote a sequel as I would love to know how the characters relationship goes I do hope the author does Sarah65 __________________________ Amazing read and was engrossed until I finished reading, this book is more than a novel it helps understand the psychic's world and has such depth of feelings Stella Matthews An interesting read different but I really enjoyed this book I liked the factual glossary at the end, it helped make sense of the paranormal happenings throughout S Williams
