"Mediocre story, excellent narrator"
In this audiobook, I first read the poem in slow enunciated French then use simple, everyday French language to explain each individual verse. I then talk about the life of the author, give a full analysis of the poem and finally re-read the poem at a faster speed with a more personal interpretation.

And the Doctor wants to help until he sees how easily dreams can turn into nightmares.

Emotional abuse, or abuse of any kind, is a terrible ordeal for anyone to go through. It affects people's lives in different ways, and can leave wounds that cut deep. If you're in a relationship with someone who is abusive, it may be hard to accept that the person you fell in love with is no longer the person you see now. While leaving is an option, it's understandable for you to want to salvage whatever is left of your relationship and turn things around.

"This is a brilliant idea"
She was drawn to him like a magnet, and he caught her in his tanned arms. She allowed herself to be put down gently on the warm rocks.
