San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 06, 2013
The magic of words and the love of creative writing, whether it be poetry or a short story, is evident in the works of author MJ Bartholomew, whose writing comes from life and the insights she has gained from her surroundings. In her book, Long Story Short, she takes these sources of inspiration, channeling them into rhymes and verses imbued with meaningful images and emotions to be felt by readers everywhere.
Bartholomew weaves her unique observations into poetry and stories that reveal facets of a charmed life. Through her prose she portrays the myriad aspects of existence, the wheel of karma, the throes of passion, lust and carnal pleasure, the precipitous lows of loss and loneliness, the ethereal touch of the divine, and so much more. A journey unlike any other awaits in words and lyrics as she shares a Long Story Short.
“Hold me closer, tighter, please / Hold me so I can follow your lead, please / The music is so loud, so harsh, so bright / Dazed and sick with the sight and sound / I am dancing with madness / I am dancing with myself,” sing Bartholomew’s poetry as they beckon her readers to join her as she embarks on a voyage into a world of dreams, of emotions freed and madness made lucid, as the soul and the spirit dances in a trance to the tune of her rhymes and verses.
“…see truth with your own eyes and heart, and keep to yourself as your own,” Bartholomew writes, foretelling the truths of life that readers will see in Long Story Short.
