Recent Pain


I find it unnerving / how contorted / our minds become

black-magic woman

before your selfish / fingers had jammed / themselves into my aorta, / i would’ve walked / right past him


this delicious fire / feels so much sweeter / than….


his tongue dripped with silence

ashes to ashes

little pieces flicker off…


the demons that call don’t like to be ignored
Summer of 1979 by ShadowDancer


silent rock

a fable of heaven and hell, or something like it

she felt a scream bubble inside of her heart


I am breaking




can we really ever leave each other? / I exist / so you exist.

a stillness will overcome

when I can finally forgive the past


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 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

fragments of a former love fool

your love came with a knife

(my heart laid out on an empty page)


get out of my head

fall from grace

Have you ever heard the sound of a leaf when it falls from a tree in solitude?

today i shall be radiant by ShadowDancer sometimes i wish i didn't feel so much by ShadowDancer

Journey of Forgotten Flesh

You left in a storm and left me alone / to nurse myself back to health / amongst the shattered earth / and slices of forgotten flesh.

A Victim’s Retort

I wish your words had burnt your tongue / and filled your disparaging mouth with blood, / so all that issued forth was strangled sounds / a…

Tear It Out – #4

It’s the only time he feels free. The wind blows his long sandy hair out of his grey eyes as he glides home.
Echoes of a Song by ShadowDancer


as i / stepped up off the bus / a welter of faces and raindrops / arose like mist


Thoughts of you are tiny imps / whispering in my ear, / endlessly / ceaselessly / tirelessly.

Tear It Out – #3

He examines the picture. It is the composite of half of a face. The eye is the focus, large and dark. But instead of an iris, inside is the…

photo boxes and red leather shoes

your entire life / reduced down to small flashes / kept in a box


fresh from a pulsing vein i / will spill myself out in small / painful drops that drain my / soul

Tear It Out – #2

They were the same brown eyes, full of the world, just heavier from experiencing more years.

Tear It Out – #1

There, on the floor in the looming shadow of books, sits the boy. Large brown eyes that hide a secret. If you look very closely you could s…
