The path
to your subconcious mind
was layered in black on black
the edges shattered
by flashes of neon light
pounding pounding

and as I leaned over,
my fists and teeth clenched,

I could smell madness
and despair

Having the ability to look into others subconcious thoughts is not always a gift, is it?



I am a dreamer, artist, and mother. I dance in the rain, spend too much time reading books, and live for my family. I am a gypsy, poet, musician, and artist. But most of all, I am a butterfly fairy. Come dream with me.

    i love both your sensual poems and your darker ones.

  • Thank you, that’s the yin yang of life… love and hate, light and dark… being a moody girl i get a chance to reflect on both ends. i’m so glad you like both, as a lot of people either like one or the other. Thanks again!

    i could smell it all the wayfrom here too…
    these words match your new avatar, patty jo…
    very dark and very deep…

  • thank you (?) is mimi your real name?

    i have been feeling deep these days, like all the world is engulfing me… i wanted an avatar that captured my ‘being’ rather than just my face.

    thank you for gracing this page with your beautiful face and enchanting words. love your presence.

    mimi is my real name… : )
    i went through a period where i tried to find darkness within me… once found it, loved it too much and found it way too beautiful… semi lost my real self for awhile… but darkness is not my forte… love dark chocolate thogh, and sadness and moody, i still love and most creative while i soak in them… but then again, i get bored of things too easily and need constant changes… i’ll forever be searching in lost…. :P

    p.s. your new avatar defines that ‘being’… you feeling deep…

  • Mimi, I know what you mean about darkness… it does have a strong pull. I tend to dance back and forth, hence my name ShadowDancer… I’ve lost myself a few times when I was younger but I’ve learned how to flow between them. I agree with you so much – it’s great to breathe deeply in the shadows and then dance in the splendid light. I think many artists find comfort in ever-changing skin.. perhaps our souls are like chameleons, always changing to the color of our moods.

    In between the shadows and light, I’ll be searching with you, beautiful one.
