A New Light, A New Day

Wow, so here we are, my own real web page and our first real blog. Where to start? I have been writing for years, I used to keep an active blog on Myspace. Does anybody remember Myspace? Shesh, I am old right. After that, I got a Live Journal, I admit no one ever read that but not because I wasn’t interesting. I barely ever posted. I always kept a journal growing up, too. My first “diary” I was eleven. I loved writing, would write stories and poetry as a kid.
We have started The Shade of Writing as a Shadow’s Lair family venture. The Shadow’s Lair Family is a family of two dads and two kids, not to unusual. We love to travel, and will post about our travels, everyday lives, fantasy writings, and just a general hodgepodge of things. We also have a goal to one day own a family farm and shop. We will use this blog to update our progress on this goal. For those of you who found this after following the Shadow’s Lair for years, thank you for your continued support. If this is your first time reading our writing, welcome and thank you. Feel free to follow us on Patreon.

Vaulted Heart

Lady, I love you.
The dreams they don’t leave me.
I keep dreaming, the soldier fighting the eternal war inside.
The corpse king
standing at the edge of a cliff,
the cave yawns in the mountian. Princess are you there?
Will you lend Koraki your wings.
Fly to freedom,
fly from this dark place
where we can’t hide.
All eyes on us here,
their judgement creeps ever near. Come, my dragon queen,
I’ll hide our love, secret, safe,
in the vault of my heart.

Heartless (2017)

you haunt my dreams
I try to escape you
It wasn’t easy to up and leave
I cried, ached, screamed it’s true
My soul was dying, letting go
Leaving the one I loved so much
You were part of my soul, it wasn’t easy
To know we may lose touch
I’ll be another face in the crowd
I had to fiegn easy
Fake that this didn’t hurt
Kill the urge ever inside me
To message I love you every morning
Like I use to when it was “us”
It hurts to pretend it never was
You think otherwise but it does
So why carry on like it was nothing?
Acknowledging what we once were
Hurts so much more than this
And that’s why I act heartless

Where My Beloved? (2013)

Where are you my beloved
I slept for many an eon
The ache for you is deep inside
I bury the desires, try to hide
The love leads to longing
This longing pleasant suffering
My joy is in her smile
My delight is the touch of her skin
Honour in serving her, unseen
To call her my beloved queen
This is the knight’s pleasure
And as Wesley in princess bride
Is known to say, “As you wish.”
Is my eternal answer
For every order my retort
Is my devotion for her
Where are you my beloved
That this Knight may say
“I love you,” and hold you
Forever here in dreams

Toasty also wasn’t feeding enough, we fed him last night by bottle. He was found in a corner away from mom, cold this morning. I only got 2 hours sleep, nursing kitties feed every 2 hours. I am very sad.

This Love is Death

I was in love with Lenore
The beautiful maiden
Of the sunlit shores
The Raven’ s delight
My Annabelle li was my dream
How I miss her tonight
The seplechure was not for her
No this tomb holds me tight
A death to love made of fear
Painted in deep tones of agony
Lost in my own inabilities
All because I cling to misery
Oh lady of Shadow’s who I love more
Than any being in this reality
If you walk this waking world
I am here, yours to hold, be forever happy
