Shae O'Brien grew up in the Pacific Northwest, and it has bred her to have a love for music, coffee, the ocean, and rain. Her love for writing was planted at a young age, with the encouragement of beautiful family and inspiring teachers, and grew into a passion she cannot go a day without. During the day, Shae is also an English teacher, promoting the art of the written word among the youth of Austin. Her writing has been featured in publications such as Off The Wookie, AIPF Di-verse-city Anthology 2012, and TWENTY: Poems In Memoriam. She recently self-published her first chapbook, "Truths Unspoken", which takes the reader on a poetic journey through the passion, love, heartbreak, and rebirth of a relationship. You may find her on any given night writing or performing her work around Austin, TX.

How Love is Found

How oft' does thy heart beat for her?
And how then does it sound?
A soft and lowly melody?
Or rhythmic, strong and loud?
When ever she may walk thy way
Or by chance when she sings
Does then thy heart beat differently
By step or harmony?
And if per chance she spoke to thee
With sweet and sultry words
Would thou speak quickly in reply
Or beat response unheard?
How oft' does thy heart beat for her?
And how then does it sound?
By seconds, hours, thoughts of her?
Is this how love is found?
