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.

Like Romeo (2013)

Fair love, like Romeo and Juliet,
I claimed none could be fairer
You and I we our love doth hide
Yet who is to say ours is untrue
I know this certain as Romeo did
Alas fairest maiden I’d die for you

Valentine for Sora

I think of the roses in the market
Flowers red, delicate and fair
Not one worthy of your beauty
None would match your emery hair
I ponder all the chocolates sweets
Alas, none as sweet as the agony
Fair, Sora, I feel when I dream of you
The markets have no item for me
To mark my devotion, Aniya, to a dream
No perfume as perfect as your scent
No flower radiant as your bloom
Alas, is there no token I might present
Then let me come with a poem for you
I come before my queen. I am your king
My love is true, pure and unending
It will be hymns of love to you I sing

A Shaded Truth, A Dreamed Love

By Damien Knight

Wrapped in the wings of love
Connected by visions lured by desire
Radiant beauty shaded truth a supposed illusion
In fact an opiate ever enticing fire

Hair fluid obsidian sharp to the eye
A smile masks my face inside I cry
Comfort in her divine glow a thought i refuse
Instead I sludge through my life in lonely lies

If i were honest her voice always guides
A subtle hymn driving me forward my passion
Soft fingers trace my cheeks, gentle a dream
Shan’t I love her here, least she’s the world I’m in
