invisible ink

he closed his eyes and / asked her to read to / him the story that beats / from her heart to his
the eternal girl in my heart by ShadowDancer it's there.. waiting to be found by ShadowDancer an unattended garden is my heart by ShadowDancer round and round goes my heart by ShadowDancer

the way music can lose its shape

so with numb fingers and / and the curtain falling to the floor / I say we have played this song long enough


where delicate whispers / copied themselves and disappeared,
San Francisco Took Her Heart by ShadowDancer

earth walker

I breathe in the stars, / and inhale their fantasy dust

at the brink

I’m dangling / on the edge of a cliff in my heart

l’oeil de la lune

tell me moon


Do you understand what / you did to me when / you poured your fire / over my hearts dry leaves?


why did it take so long to find you? / my heart was for so long needing to feel / the beauty of tenderness like this
silence your heart to hear the music of life by ShadowDancer

play it again, sam

Before I knew love / life was just air / suspended

a purple crown of possibilities grows within my l…

my eyes are nearly closed / as they grow pregnant / from the visions that he has planted

the dragon storm

you are / an unwelcome hurricane


and I wonder why / the birds don’t hear / the noise in my heart

turning whiskey into nothing

there is a comfort / in talking to you / a warmth I still feel / despite my own misery


I can think of no sad songs / that will remind me of you.
the way your love anchors my flighty fairy heart by ShadowDancer


i am thankful for you / (in a way)


you once told me / that regardless of our love / mother river / always changes her course / leaving a trail of destruction / to create a ne…
it's not just that it ended, it's that it was so easy for you to let me go by ShadowDancer

fast and furious

I feel it in the marrow of my bones / I feel you in the creases of my skin

fragments of a former love fool

your love came with a knife


As night descends upon us, the candles cast a luminescent glow / Our shadows dance along the wall, matching our bodies, nice and slow
the warlock of my heart by ShadowDancer

contact (without my heart)

(my heart laid out on an empty page)




get out of my head
i am fire.. you will burn by ShadowDancer


My favorite moments / are when I watch you sleep

The Secret River

I don’t want to be / some silly leftover romance / that started like a nuclear bomb / and ended without a whisper

my knight, my sculptor, my slayer

I beg of you with quiet whispers / do not abandon this blade, my lover

my fragile flowered heart

Like the angel-white petals / of a Jasmine turn towards / the scent of the golden rays / of her sun, I turn to you.


My love is yours for the asking… / but I like to hear you ask, / I like to see you beg

The After

With infinite slowness, / the warm and sticky sweetness / of your love enveloped my being.
my heart is barren when you are away by ShadowDancer

The Divine and Unbearable Celestial Love Affair

She lay quietly, glistening, / the stars of her skin twinkle as his fingers pass / and he wonders what universe her mind is in / as he feel…

Midnight Quest of the Lone Spirit

From my perch, sheltered amongst the / evergreen gods overlooking the cliffs, / I hear the mountain breathe.

silent witness

when i hear those / sighs and / unguarded moans / i am coated, drunk, / intoxicated


I met him long ago / needing someone / to dream of when bored


So, I did, / and how! / And how / it broiled my lips.
Echoes of a Song by ShadowDancer


longing, / soft as a holy lake / caught unaware / in the hidden fold / of a virgin mountain?


It had been missing for some time / a piece of me / so slight I had overlooked it for quite a while

is it the same?

how do we know

Don’t tell me lies

But you, with your heart on your sleeve / and a child in your eyes,
i can still taste the blue water on my lips where i last saw you by ShadowDancer

The Redwood and the Rain Goddess

But when will you understand, / my Forest Sovereign, / that they are crying because / you drink me in / but then send me on my way?


when a sigh escapes / those peach flavored lips


but it continues to grow colder / as we / come apart at more than mere / fingers

you say goodnight

the hurt / p u l l s at me / when we get in bed / and you roll over

Of Men Behind Me

I’m pulling down my jeans, when he says, / “I’m behind you,” / and suddenly a rage comes / of men behind me:


This passion that sweeps fire across my breast / It chokes within me / I cannot speak.


It ended as it had begun / with an agonized scream of unfulfilled need / and bitter accusations.

Secret Smoke

Our conversations / Were laid out / Like a linen blanket / On forest green grass

From Fantasy to Reality

“I love you,” he said / and drew lines / in the sand of his emotions

A Heart’s Whisper

Stagnant noise extends the reality of the distance between them. His large hands clutch the phone….

Shadow of Shame

there was nothing / in your kiss / in your smile / in your laughter / that belied / your intentions

Moving forward, he strained to see the monitor. There it was. The steady pulse of a strong heart. He watched as the lips of the mother f…
