What Comes After
Melissa Toppen
Publication date: August 9th 2019
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Life is full of many things.





No matter how small, each moment has value.

Then there are the big moments.

The moments that define us.

And the people who shape our very existence.

Abel Collins is that person for me.

From the very first time our eyes locked, I knew there was something about him. That he was the person that would change everything.

And he did.

But Abel isn’t just any man…

His past is his prison.

His guilt keeps him chained.

His grief defines him.

And now it’s up to me to set him free.

To make him see that life isn’t just about what we’ve lost but what we still stand to gain.

Because it’s not about what came before, but what comes after.

What about Love?

age, gender, sexuality
all you & they talk of

what are they? how old is she?

they’re what, 15 years apart?

that will never last
you will see

what is in an age, but numbers
what is in a person, but
a heart

dare i say it, ask
ok, whisper
what about love
what if they love one another?

love is a new born babe, an adorable cat meme,
transparent soap bubbles, the view from the window
of an aeroplane

what if it is love?
do you think before you love?

what a shame – fall first &reassess later

our heart has more sense than our prejudice
