Filled with artistic photographs and visceral poetry which burns brighter than a cosmic furnace. Nicolenya Caltman’s latest creative endeavor fills the cold void, while enlightening your mind, heart, and soul.

Fickle crushes are extinguished by the frigid winds of change, and cheap infatuations burn out, just like a sun that no longer shines. What prevents our heart from burning out? Nicolenya Caltman has the answer: unconditional love.

Yours truly was assaulted by a tick, and that eight-legged bastard gave me a nasty gift. Can you guess what it was? That’s right! Lyme disease. I didn’t suffer the same consequences as most people, though. A bull’s-eye rash is a common symptom of Lyme disease, however, I didn’t get a rash…because I’m special. Just kidding. Kind of. I’m so special, in fact, that my doctor believed I had a rare form of Leukemia. Lyme disease attacked my knee joint, and also the weird organ (vestibule) which sits somewhere inside our ears. The inner ear vestibule has a very important job which involves giving you a sense of direction and not feeling like you’re walking on the Mayflower. The Mayflower was a ship…just in case you’re wondering. Joint inflammation is a common symptom of Lyme disease, too, and a bright idea sparked inside my doctor’s studious brain. He tested me for Lyme disease, I chowed down on some magic pills, and the rest is history. My symptoms could have developed into a serious condition. I somehow managed to live with Lyme disease for awhile, and a misdiagnoses would have granted the disease more time to wage war against my nervous system. Lucky me. I guess.

Author Biography

I am a new indie author, who just completed my first manuscript consisting of love poems and poems about my battle with Lyme Disease. I lost so much of myself during this battle because it got into my brain and nervous system. It affected primarily the left side of my brain, frontal lobe, and motor functions. While I lost so much of the functioning and reasoning from the left side, the right side of my brain took over completely. I found myself writing and doing art almost to the point of madness LOL, for my boyfriend. Poor soul. However, other people seemed to be intrigued by my style and two years later, a book was born.

It is truly amazing these poems arrived out of myself. Through a very jumbled and damaged brain, sick in bed for months at a time, barely able to walk and talk, and sometimes barely able to see. Even now, as I type this…it brings tears to my eyes. It was hell on earth…feeling like you are confined to a fish bowl with no water, looking out. Aware of what’s going on with your body, and the feeling of powerlessness that you can do nothing about it except lay in defeat.

Because of this beautiful man, I found another part of myself I had no clue existed. It is probably what saved me, and it kept me fighting.

I wanted to encourage others through my poetry, that true love, actually…exists; even at a ripe age. LOL. No matter what life has thrown them…continue to believe, that…that one perfect person is there in the universe for you, and that health and healing can rise up…even out of hell fire.

The story of our love is amazing, because we seem to be able to love and accept each other even with our faults, and that while we are imperfect humans, we become perfect in love…unconditional love, as it should be.

My hope is it will touch your soul, and to share with the world, beautiful people still exist; even among the ugliness.

10% of sales from it and anything else I manage to write, will go to Lyme related venue…such as GOFUNDME to people suffering and the like.

Sincerely in Love,

Nicolenya Caltman

  2. Sorry to hear about what happened to you. I’ve heard through people I know of their own family members having the Lyme disease. One of them is paralyzed and two sisters got them at different times. One was from hiking and the other from camping. Really sad because one of them can’t work.

  3. Well, I’m intrigued and purchased my copy. The moon has been a constant friend. I like that it shines up there at night and doesn’t say a thing. No better friend than that — “Hey, I’ll light up your nights, and I won’t say a thing! No one will know. It’ll be our little secret!” Haha!! Yeah, I like the moon.

  5. I have PTSD etc after my Lyme experience. I have a very difficult time hearing about it. It was then and still remains; very traumatic, for me.

    • That’s completely understandable. Everyone experiences different symptoms. Try to remain positive, and never let a damn tick suck away your happiness. Fight back. Keep writing.

  6. I once romanced the moon, and it got kinda cheesy. 😃The nice thing about the moon is that you can’t get ticks when you’re there.
