The Stag. The ‘king of the forest’ and ‘protector of all other creatures.’ It represents intuition, power and yet gentleness. (just to name a few ). . . The stag is a recurring theme in ‘LUST’, as you will see in this short little video. Each chapter in the first section will begin with a drawing of the stag, respective to the meaning behind the words which will follow. . . Hopefully tomorrow we will be able to officially countdown the days until ‘LUST’ is available to purchase. . . SHVH
‘Our beings were made to wonder, to ponder; to conceptualise crazy thoughts and even crazier aspirations to which we find ourselves becoming so determined to achieve and thus we push everything in our life aside in the hopes that we can one day turn our craziest of dreams into reality.’ . . SHVH . . This week, we countdown the days until ‘LUST’ will be available. ✌🏽

‘But it has become so clear to me that sometimes we are just a moment in someone’s life, a footnote to their story whilst they were an entire chapter, the synopsis, to ours.‘ - LUST . . So here’s some good news! With ‘Lust’ going through the stages of self-publication at this point in time, I’ve began working on some side projects; one to help promote ‘Lust’ and the SHVH name and the other, a second book to this series, titled ‘Reclaim’. . . ‘Reclaim will be a shorter book, but delves much deeper into a particular section of ‘Lust’, which had only mentioned it slightly at the beginning.’ . . Super keen and it’s only up from here 🤙🏽
‘LUST’. ⠀ ⠀ Who’s excited? 🙋♂️🙋♀️⠀ ⠀ #likes4likes #picoftheday #literature #iphonesia #me #imagine #follow #love #l4l #library #instamood #photooftheday #likeall #paper #c4c #bestoftheday #books #page #like4like #tbt #book #f4f #instagood #likeforlike #tweegram #love #liking #s4s #kindle
‘A journey through time, this book is written in a perspective of love through anguish, confusion, lust; a tale that may rip the words straight from your tongue or provide a coveted sense of closure about the uncertainty looming amidst your thoughts. . . It’s a tale of desire, yet not one that necessarily ends in the way that the fairy tales had promised.’ . . LUST . . Old pic, same goals and values. This time last year ‘Lust’ was comprised of a mere few chapters, drafted very roughly. Today, it’s about to be self-published. 🙏🏻 It’ll be worth the wait, I promise.
‘It’s a scary realisation, seeing everything change right before your eyes.⠀ ⠀ When you come to terms with the fact that things aren’t working out the way that you had planned and the promise of a happily ever after, which had you daydreaming for hours on end, is becoming more of a gut-wrenching contemplation than a possible reality.’⠀ ⠀ SHVH
‘We are a generation usually lost in our thoughts.⠀ Lost within a fictional utopia consuming the depths of our minds, a world represented by the things that we dream of the most; a world where we can be true to ourselves, yet a world that cannot ever be seen, let alone understood, by the eyes of another.’⠀ ⠀ SHVH
‘Sometimes it feels as if we run out of time each day to express how we feel. . . And yet sometimes it feels as if time itself has stopped still, just for the instance that we share with the one that we love, just to make each moment last a little longer; . . because even eternity isn’t long enough with the person that has stolen our heart. . . To get the chance to speak the words from our stuttering lips, to say what we wish we could but hesitate to find the right time to convey our emotions. . . Love is so satisfying. . . Who knew it was possible to find someone that could love you more than you could ever love yourself?’ . . SHVH
‘One day you won’t ever wish to fall asleep, because reality has proven to be far better than your dreams could ever be.’ . . Instead of posting nature every other post, thought I’d post a bit more about me, so you can get to know who’s behind these words 🙏🏽 . . I’ve got big plans coming now that Lust is so close to being published, so do stay tuned!
A second teaser to the promotional short film ‘Desire’ which will be used to promote my first book, titled ‘LUST’. This time including @andreaonamademusic on narration. 💓 ‘LUST’ will be available in paperback and ebook soon! Thank you all for staying tuned. . . SHVH
‘If you asked me to describe her, I would tell you that I simply couldn’t. . . Instead I would ask you to describe how a caterpillar must feel as it blossoms into this precarious world as a butterfly; . . Or the adrenaline rushing through a young child as they stare upon the enthralment of the stars in the moonlight.’ . . SHVH
‘You see everything is so different without you here. . . But I know that one day soon we will meet somewhere where the grass will grow greener than the fields that we used to explore until we would get lost in. . . Somewhere where the night sky will put on a show of bedazzling stars and the most exuberant aura that we can gaze at all through the night or until our sides begin to hurt from the laughter that we will share. . . The sea will chant melodies that we can sing to. . . The trees will lend an outstretched hand as they welcome us into our new future, together.’ . . SHVH
‘You see, every moment with her is a new adventure; A moment frozen in time whilst the echoes of reality flashes past our riveted minds. . . It’s that sort of feeling that made me lay in bed for hours on end, where I couldn’t think about anything but how her cheekbones seemed to glisten every time she laughed; . . where the butterflies in my stomach turned into lions and the rain bouncing off of my skin felt like kisses from cupid.’ SHVH
‘So I told her that I was inlove with her. . . Even though I didn’t really know what being in love truly meant. . . I wasn’t sure if it was fair on the both of us to commit to such an intoxicating, permanent, commitment without a clue on how we felt or what the implications of it were. . . But when you feel a certain way, when your heart becomes paralysed with so much joy that it makes you forget about everything but the way that your lovers’ lips shimmer in the sunlight, or the smell of their favourite perfume which radiates off of their dearest blouse, . . loving someone becomes something that you just don’t need to think about. . . It becomes something that you commit your heart and your soul to and hope that you are doing everything in your power to make them happy.’ . . LUST
‘People usually think that being alone is peaceful, that you are blessed with the serenity of tranquillity. . . But there is no silence in loneliness. For you are condemned to the raucous noises swooning amidst the confusion in your head; . . you are condemned to your over-zealous thoughts. . . And so I hastily walk between the crowds to escape my thoughts, to look as if I have somewhere to be or someone to see. . . Yet my desolate mind overhears the joyous laughter amidst friends and affection between lovers ringing so loudly in my ears, . . and it reminds me that I am plagued by the echoes of a non-existent heartbeat, . . that I am walking on a bed of ice bound to break under the weight of my woeful heart; . . that I am so alone in a world where everyone has someone.’ . . LUST.
