Get your Groove on Thursday - Poison & Wine

So this week I wanted to tap into The Edge of Never with the song Poison & Wine by The Civil Wars

By the end of those two weeks, Andrew had a new favorite band to add to his list. He loves The Civil Wars as much as I do. And last night, our last night in New Orleans,  we lay in bed together and sang along to Poison & Wine coming from the phone beside the bed...and...I think we told each other things through those lyrics that we've been wanting to say...

I think we did...
I cried myself quietly to sleep in his arms.  I died and went to heaven.

Poison & Wine  by The Civil Wars

His arms tighten around me.  "Then sing anything," he whispers, "I just want to hear your voice."  And so I start to sing Poison & Wine, the same song that we sang together back in New Orleans when we lay in each other's arms that night.  He sings along with me a few verses, but I can tell just how weak he really is inside because he can barely hold a note.

We fall asleep in each other's arms.

Quotes from The Edge of Never by J.A. Redmerski

The Edge of Never

Twenty-year-old Camryn Bennett had always been one to think out-of-the-box, who knew she wanted something more in life than following the same repetitive patterns and growing old with the same repetitive life story. And she thought that her life was going in the right direction until everything fell apart.

Determined not to dwell on the negative and push forward, Camryn is set to move in with her best friend and plans to start a new job. But after an unexpected night at the hottest club in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina, she makes the ultimate decision to leave the only life she’s ever known, far behind.

With a purse, a cell phone and a small bag with a few necessities, Camryn, with absolutely no direction or purpose boards a Greyhound bus alone and sets out to find herself. What she finds is a guy named Andrew Parrish, someone not so very different from her and who harbors his own dark secrets. But Camryn swore never to let down her walls again. And she vowed never to fall in love.

But with Andrew, Camryn finds herself doing a lot of things she never thought she’d do. He shows her what it’s really like to live out-of-the-box and to give in to her deepest, darkest desires. On their sporadic road-trip he becomes the center of her exciting and daring new life, pulling love and lust and emotion out of her in ways she never imagined possible. But will Andrew’s dark secret push them inseparably together, or tear them completely apart?
