Cover Reveal - CIRQUE Act 1 by Ashleigh Giannoccaro

CIRQUE by Ashleigh Giannoccaro

Release Date: September 15, 2016

A boy looked in a window, to see a naughty show
Through the pane of pain, the master clown did blow
The circus is a holy tent, the keeper of my rhyme
Where I forged my chains, creating this pantomime
Pretending to be normal, I wait until after dark
Then I paint the frown on, get a whore from the park
At the bottom of that bed was a darling in a chest
She watched with big eyes, horror hooking her from rest
She dances for the maniac, twirling on her strings
I will make her mine, sharing damaged things
I will be her riddle, she will help me grin
So why does she run away, she has to let me in
No one loves the clown, not even the midget
We’ve gone too far, she will know my secret
Love can break the hardest mask, I know this to be true
 Nightmares have hearts too, I only needed you

I live in South Africa with my husband, two daughters, five dogs, two meerkats and a parrot. I love to read and my kindle(s) are my favourite gadget. I am a coffee addict and I hate purple sweets. I love to write next to an open window. 

I am inspired by everything around me and I love to people watch wherever I go.
