"Published author, aspiring novelist . . . welcome to my world of madness!"

Spotlight Time! Author and poet: Nomar Knight

Nomar is someone very dear to my heart and an inspiration to many who have had the pleasure of crossing paths with him. Seldom a day goes by when I'm not awed by the sheer breadth of his talents. Most may know him as an incredible master of horror, but this man is the definition of versatile, and his skills as a poet are not to go without mention.  (I won't bring up his ability to play where the daylight burns and all that jazz. *wink*)

So, without further ado, here is a breathtaking poem penned by the one and only Mr. Knight:

On the Wings of Miracles
By Nomar Knight

It's not until I hear your voice

My breath returns

You are the very substance I crave

The melodic sound of whispers

Carried across miles of ocean

On the wings of miracles

No longer lying dormant

My will to survive

Jolts with electrical impulses

As if awakened by an impetuous Phantom

Hell-bent on destroying

Clouds saturated with ambivalence

Shock overtakes me

For the thought of escaping

An abominable crater

Built on self-depreciation

Evaporates when I hear

Your glorious call to life

Shame fills me with doubt

Surely I do not deserve your love

Angels weep and Hell grows silent

If a weakling such as I can be reborn

Then history will fold to mercy

Restoring the balance of ancient man

Speak and sprinkle words

So I can regain my place

In the presence of heavenly beauty

Your tongue nurtures

Your smile fans the flames of devotion

Forever sealing our love with the kiss of life

See? Isn't he wonderful? Be sure to check out his blog at Knight Chills and keep an eye on this up and coming author. I know there will be many great things from him in the future.

Thank you, Nomar, for allowing me the privilidge of sharing your work, and for being the fabulous man and mentor that you are!

~Best wishes and happy writing!~
