This collection of thirty poems by novelist Kyrian Lyndon spans decades throughout the author's personal journey. From the soothingly peaceful to the bizarre, Kyrian runs the gamut of complex emotions that will resonate for many. The poems are poignant-honest, open, and straight from the heart, heartbreaking and with humor, embracing light and dark, hope and despair, triumph over adversity.

She writes:

Oh, for the beauty of the melody,
The harmony sprinkled about.
He is but a glowing midge
Longing to play an Aeolian harp,
While holding you still and entranced
With the celestial beauty of a god.
Ah, but for the pain!
The seraphic master sets about casting shadows
So that I cannot see the sun,
Leaving but a vista of tomorrow's joys and treasures.
The current focus becomes a precursor
Along the predestined path,
A traverse on the bridge.
That's my all-too-rigid honeybee,
Leaving me with a concave and sunken universe,
A hollow path in my heart and my soul.

'A Dark Rose Blooms' also contains an excerpt from 'Provenance of Bondage,' the first book of Kyrian's forthcoming 'Deadly Veils' series. We meet the series protagonist, Danielle DeCorso, as she tries to cope with a devastating event she can't fully remember. She struggles in isolation and despair, as her perception of what she does recall differs from that of her cousin and her friend.

About the Author

Kyrian Lyndon began writing short stories and fairy tales when she was just eight years old. In her adolescence, she moved on to poetry. At sixteen, while working as an editor for her high school newspaper, Kyrian wrote her first novel, and then completed two more novels at the ages of nineteen and twenty-five.

Kyrian is forthcoming about being a person with many years of recovery, as well as a trauma survivor. Throughout her journeys, she expressed her thoughts through poetry, embracing every challenge to triumph over adversity. In her conviction that learning, growing, healing, and evolving is a never-ending process, she remains as grateful for the dark days as she is for every flicker of hope and light. She considers herself a cheerleader for those trudging on against all odds in the hopes of living their dreams.

Born and raised in Woodside, Queens, New York, Kyrian was the middle child of three sisters born to immigrants-her father from Campochiaro, Italy; her mother from Havana, Cuba. She has worked primarily in executive-level administrative positions with major New York publishing companies.

Kyrian has completed two more books for release this fall: Remnants of Severed Chains, her new poetry collection and Deadly Veils Book One: Provenance of Bondage, the first novel of her fiction series. Additional projects and collaborations are in the works.

She resides on Long Island in New York.
