The Lady Of The Night accompanies you on a journey. She opens the vastness of all that is, and allows you to indulge in emotions, experiences and adventures that you’ve yet come to know.
Her poetry seeks to explore the treasures of The Universe that have not yet been caressed. She allows you to open up your imagination, to induce a state of trance and/or meditation. Layers upon layers, her poetry holds. Hidden messages beneath each word that has passionately been formed to create a particular feeling, thought, sensation.
The Lady Of The Night uses her experiences as a focal point, and these come by way of either literal form or metaphorical form. Just when you know where the poetry is leading you to, you are eclipsed by a twist that throws you back.
Seductive and dark, The Lady Of The Night uses charm and enchantment to help you hone in on your visualisation gifts – your internal mechanisms. Although apparent to be extrovert and transparent, The Lady Of The Night actually emits energy that is sensual, intimate and pleasurable. Opaqueness is her gift. They say that it’s always the quiet
ones – you don’t know what you’re missing out on, when you overlook the ones whom are peaceful and introvert in nature.
The Lady Of The Night doesn’t form words up without a story. She has a story, but whether that story resonates with the reader is up to them. You can read her story, or you can be taken a journey whereby you create your own story. That is the beauty of The Lady Of The Night’s poetry – when all seems to be formulated and understood, you realise that what was supposed to be, actually isn’t and never has been.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I've been through quite a lot of trauma over the years. All ranging from mental health issues, sexual harassment, emotional neglect, struggles with sexuality, losing my 'known' identity. The latest to add to the list is having my first relationship, with a narcissistic emotional and mental abuser.
When it comes to mental health issues, I've suffered from a range. Eating disorders, OCD, depression, self harm, suicidal tendencies. 15 years and still the same default setting comes through. Why? I guess I haven't healed yet.
The thing with trauma is – you keep going through the same stuff until you learn the lessons embedded deep within it. Until you change the programme, the same frequency is going to keep being emitted. Trauma leads you to a place of self-love, and that's what life is all about.
It's not egotistical love. It's not being selfish. It's not viewing yourself as being superior to others. No. It's about embracing all that you are, shadow side and all.
Self-love is about honouring yourself. Honouring your limits, your triggers, and honouring your energy. Where you place yourself, affects your energy. How much pressure you put on yourself, affects your energy. Who you spend time with, affects your energy.
This world is beautiful, and magical. Only the select view see it though. I'm one of those select view.
Exactly like my book description concludes: 'Throw in the concoction of eating disorders, narcissistic relationships, a Divine Masculine Twin Flame that struggles with emotions, hidden sexual desires, struggles with sensuality and sexuality… and you've got a book that covers all areas of the psyche and mind.'
That's what this book is about. My journey throughout it all.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
The main character throughout, is myself. You're reading the words as if you're looking through my eyes. My writing does something miraculous though. You may be looking down on the paper through my eyes, but you're creating your own story. You're looking back over your lifetimes, and you're picking out pieces of the puzzle. You're acknowledging that these little gems that are found between my words, are actually the gems that you've been missing your whole life.
Of course, throughout, the differing stories focus and evolve around culprits or characters who played a huge part in the trauma that I endured. Again, there are characters who have helped me and who continue to help me forevermore.
False Twin Flame
I wasn't expecting this,
Seeing your face I experienced some sort of bliss.
I could not have prepared myself for the rollercoaster I was about to get on,
My insides went mushy and tender, and momentarily everything had gone.
Standing in the middle of that room there was
nothing but daunt,
A lot of skeletons around me helpless and gaunt.
I remember the introduction well,
When our eyes met, my heart began to swell.
There was a tenderness beneath your hardened
It was that moment where I didn't feel inferior.
Something beautiful and special had happened,
I knew you felt it too – our connection beckoned.
It was that time of day and you didn't know how I'd react,
But you managed to hold your ground through it
all – you did well to act.
Your heart was bleeding and your body was yearning,
Together, we started learning.
Energy was sucked out of the room and the
But there was mistiness, desire, heartache… a fire of passion alight in your pupil.
Devastated, afraid and lost, I felt no care,
But when I looked around, you were there.
You tried not to let me see the tears running down your plump soft cheeks.
All I wanted to do was embrace and kiss away the wetness
from the creeks.
Days turned to weeks and our special bond strengthened,
Our conversations got deep and started to get lengthened.
I opened up to you, and you to me,
We felt each other's pain…and also glee.
Piss-take and laughter I always caught you smiling at me sweetly,
You'd tut and jaw-drop but you loved me completely.
When it was time for us to part, you wouldn't let
It felt like only us in the corridor – we didn't care if it would show.
You clasped me tight and kissed me briefly on the neck,
Fingers running through my hair, your hand tip-toed on my back.
I had to pull my gaze away from you,
This wasn't going any further, we both knew.
One day I saw you, you beeped and waved,
When I thought I'd convinced myself I could live without you, I caved.
From that moment on I was on the look-out for you,
I still do it now but I suppose a lot of things are new.
What I would give to have that chance to explain,
Our actual ending was terrible – ever since, I've felt pain.
Try as I might to let it go and cut the cord.
I guess if a melody is meant to be, it has to have a chord.
The truth is, I can't get you out of my head.
My heart is finding it difficult to let regret shed.
I feel like there has been so much left unsaid and like our journey hasn't ended.
I know you were hurt a lot, and when I witnessed it, I was there. I defended.
If only I could see you again, just to get it all out in the open,
You've always and will always make my insides feel like an ocean.
I just need to hold you one last time,
Even if it's just before midnight begins to chime.
I love you and I need you to know,
I can't and I may never be able to let you go.
