Melissa Charlton, an expectant first-time grandmother who lives quietly in Branson, Missouri, with her husband, daughter, son-in-law, father, and the family pets, has completed her new book “The World of Love and Hate”: a multifaceted poetry book.

Author Charlton writes about the thin line between love and hate:
“Your heart is tainted by sinful lust
Your words are like acid dripping from your lips
Your tongue is like a double-edged sword
cutting me deep inside.
If it weren’t a sin, I would hate you
Hate you for ruining my life
Hate you for controlling us all
But most of all,
I hate you for tearing us apart.
I do love you for accepting me for who I am
Love you for praising my work
Love you for listening when I need to talk.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Melissa Charlton’s new book is an honest reflection of what it means to be human in various circumstances and degrees of pain. Charlton provides a poem for almost every situation in which a few words says more than the silence.

Readers who wish to experience this probing work can purchase “The World of Love and Hate” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
