I Feel Like Dancing

Drink me ill this pleasure still,
And cure me with your poisoned pills-
Before I lose all my strength,
But, oh! I lost that long ago!
Dreamily dancing to and fro...
With legs of lead and no feet to stand,
And a phantom partner to hold my hand
A languid trance and lulled Romance
To seize me whole in its expanse
Never I yield, though quite out of breath-
Drunkenly dancing in the Depths Of Death

Dancing on a Grave

A jump a skip and a jig perhaps 
I shall steel myself and I will
Dance on her grave

Mystery no forgiveness as time has passed
But my promise made and I will
Dance on her grave

An oath made as a wilful young man
Older now yet still and I will 
Dance on her grave

Dancing With Death

Dance with me said death
Come dance in the dark
We are both all alone
And the darkness so stark

Embrace me said death
Wrap your warm arms around my bones
We are both without hope
Both of us so alone

Take my hand said death
Follow me down to the crypt
And Lay there beside me
Where both of us can rest

Stay with me said death
Here beyond the light of day
Let your bones join my own
In silence and decay

Dancing with the Angels

There is a path within the glow, 
where loved ones will be waiting. 
Walk forward on the winding road 
that guides you to your eternal home.

The shadow of your existence 
flickering in the light,
around every corner, there is a memory; 
your spirit is everywhere. 

Flourishing from your twinkling light 
radiates an orange glow. 
I will always think of you 
when I look at the illuminating sky.

As you dance alongside the angels' 
a sweet melody is flowing from your soul, 
the choir gives voice to your song 
and sings a heavenly chorus.

A small sigh escapes your lips 
when you realize inner peace.

Dancing in the Grave Yard

I dance upon you
and your spirit I lift
in to my heart.
I dance upon you all
I dance where I can
in between the headstones
on grasses of divan,
where once you’re feet laid
where your love ones
shed their last evanescent tear.
I dance through
the small hours of night
and the longest time of day,
I dance, I dance, I dance
this my humble homage to you all
you whom served your era well,
you made the masters
with your skill your energy,
you fought their bloody wars
your enterprise kept them rich
but only of an earthly kind.
Oh yes when I dance
I dance and I remember you all,
so to you that spread your seed
ever so well
to give another generation life,
I dance!!

Dancing In Death

I dance in death to overtures of Bach
In the background violins softly play,
Body and mind start slowly to decay
Hear the tick, tick, ticking of midnights clock.
In death, in death; 'tis such a sweet scene,
Bach fades into the midnight hour.
The ending of song in all its power,
The beauty of death; ‘tis but a dream.

How could I dream that death is so sweet,
Oh, life why don't I cry out for thee?
I never knew death had honor and pride
'Tis a new beginning for a life complete.
The closing of mine eyes has made me see
Play on dear Bach, let me dance by your side.

He dances on my grave
Jubilant that I am now his to take
He wishes to devour my soul
As my body disintegrates

He has come to take what he feels is his own
A promise fulfilled
A deal struck
A reward  now due

A Dancing Winter

A barren land

Is transformed formed into

A winter paradise

A white blank of snow

Covers everything that the eyes can see

The tumbling cooling breeze of winter

Bring peace to this once barren land

The bears sleep for the winter

The flowers await the warmth of spring

The kids come out and play

All day as they may

Their imaginations running while

A snowball fight is the best war

A snow angel to decorate the landscape

A majestical snowman becomes the main attraction

A child’s laugh is the best medicine

For a cold and stern heart

Rejoice in this paradise

It’s winter

The dawn of a new beginning

Dancing in the Chamber

In the dynamic chamber we danced It went and moved to the music We spun around in circles And held our dates real tight We were having fun Till the gas came Poisonous Deadly Gas

Dancing 'Till Dawn With All The People I Love

I wear love like a birthmark, 
With pride on my breast, 
This dance until dawn, 
Bids it sweat and salsa, 
Silently sway, 
Then delirium scream. 

Dancing till dawn with 
All the people I love, 
Avalanches my heart, 
Carries me away 
On wings of snow-blind doves 
In perfectly framed abandon. 

Dancing till dawn with 
All the people I love; 
I would tender my soul 
For this timeless instant 
To chain the end 
at bay.

Dancing the Last Dance

With lighter
And a cigarette
In your palm

You sparkled
With theatrical show
And we smiled

At those rims of desire 
Billowing thru the noonday air
Though it was too thin to last
And the repairman 
Falling behind schedule 
Still, I will be dancing--
Your last dance.

Symphony of Dancing Fire

Death is a Dream, as Life a Burden,
Knife's sun gleam, veins start to harden.
Pulse goes up, inner child died,
waiting for old, follow with pride.
watching blood, drip by drip, 
beautiful flood, from a serrated tip.
pint by pint, unconscious and leery, 
heart slows down, perfect and weary.
time has come, cross the plain,
no more drip, no more pain.
heat in waves, oceans of fire,
lights go dismal, as I retire.

The Dancing Harlot

She kept the vile of cyanide hidden in a locket
Suspended between her enticing breasts

Seduction was her vanity and her alluring charm 
Irresistible to men, vexing her calculating mind 

Causing her to abhor them and invoke a deep hate
Triggering an incredulous cool sardonic smile

Gathering lovers into her captivating coil
To smite them blind with her deadly powder

While they are writhing  in her wanton bed
With an obsidian dagger embedded in their chest

The harlot dances intoxicated and warped
Murder the aphrodisiac to her blasphemous soul

The Death Dancing Butterfly

Is it a myth
The Death Dancing Butterfly
Large elaborate graceful
Scavenger deadly unusual
Rare mystical species
Lethal insect
