Each Death Draws Us Closer - Dark Love Poetry - Dark Erotic Love Poetry - Dena L Moore - July 2009
I'm pleased to announce the release of my latest collection (July 2009) - Each Death Draws Us Closer

Each Death Draws Us Closer explores the intense, darker side of erotic love and the depth of emotions that are stirred when passionate love borders on obsession. This is a work of Dark Love Poetry...when a relationship falters or when one feels abused or abandoned by a lover, darker emotions may creep into our thoughts. Despite the pain and sometimes overwhelming feelings within, there is also the reminder that there is always a new life up ahead, a new chance to heal old karmic wounds and reunite in tender love...Dena L Moore explores these emotions through the imagery of Blood, Bones, Crypt, & Sea.

Burning Constellations: Poetry for a Universal Soul - Dena L Moore
I'm pleased to announce the release (July 2008) -
Burning Constellations

Poetry for a Universal Soul ~ The poetry in Burning Constellations ranges from sweet love to dark desperation. Introspective poetry slips easily into spiritual longings for 'perfect' love and otherworldly ideals (such as Angels and World Peace). History combines with resurrected ideas--now considered New Age in nature--as well as an emphasis on nature, spirituality, and pagan concepts explored through poetry.

Immortality Lives...Embracing Poetry in a New Age
(February 2002)

Sensual and mysterious, calming and yet at times disturbing, Immortality Lives... embraces antiquity while quickly forging into the future. Dena L. Moore's poetry rides a crescendo of emotion, capturing humanity full scale. From the blackest pits of desperation to the loftiest of spiritual realms, Immortality Lives... goes where many fear to tread.

"Immortality lives in the clay, the sand, and the artist's skillful hand."

Fluidity of Creation - Poetry of Love, Loss, & the Occult
(February 2002)

Poetry is pure spiritual emotion brought down to earth from the lofty heights of the human mind. Emotion is the song in our souls; it can be cold or passionate, forgiving or vengeful. Emotion is fluid and changing, and the poetry within Fluidity of Creation flows from the darkest corners of humanity to the outer reaches of the planets and New Age philosophy.

Professional Review for Fluidity of Creation:

Poetry in Sidereal Motion, October 27, 2002
By  Keith White, Ph.D. (the University of South Florida St. Petersburg) -

Dena L. Moore's poetry seems to have the ability to change the motions of the stars. Moore rearranges primal thoughts -- much like the gods rearranged the constellations to tell humanity new stories. Such efforts as "Closure" and "Here I lie...Waiting" give us a more intense light to follow when we have lost our way in the darkness. ...

…And My Heart Cannot be Still


…And my heart cannot be still,
It can’t lie in silence, a stone-walled crypt
As you desire.
No…it pulsates and throbs and aches,
It bleeds, how it bleeds, the sorrow a flood
Uncontained and threatening,
A tidal wave growing, flowing through veins
Once well-loved and tended, now abandoned,
Isolated and sluggish but still moving,
Moving forward,
Uncertain, in pain, unable to remain in the cast
You’ve created, a heart to call your own but
Used, bruised, and misunderstood in its fragility.
Don’t ask me to be silent,
Don’t expect my heart to lie still in your possession –

It can’t and I won’t.
